Hey everybody my first time here! Iwas doing a system restore and right now it is in "finalizing file restore" it has been there for about an hour. Is it supposed to take this long or is my computer stuck.

Be patient and wait, it maybe that your puter needs a good defrag aswell after this due to the amount of files you have and apps and software you have installed, unless you've been on some dodgee sites and picked up a virus, but it's more likely the first thing i said, so just wait !

If life is not an option then why are we not given the option in the first place !

Hiya Figgis i think your a bit late with that because i think the restore is already on its way thats why i said "just wait" !
