It seemed as if my computer was running slower. I then tried to do a system restore. After clicking the system restore first no window comes up. Then clicking it again brings a window up, but the whole box is blank. After this happened i then tried to do a system recovery. Restarted my computer and booted up the system recovery pc angel. When the pc angel loading screen comes up it always freezes, even with the cd. I have tried many different things and still nothing works. Please help, THANKS!

by the way i have an emachine t6412

System Restore is a popular target for malicious software. The malicious code will sometime make things that could be used to remove it unusable - like System Restore.

First, you should do some scanning with at least these free tools:

Download, install, update and do a full scan with these three free malware detection programs:

Malwarebytes (MBAM): http://malwarebytes.org/
SUPERAntiSpyware: (SAS): http://www.superantispyware.com/

Try your System Restore after this and if you still have a problem, we can proceed.
