When i went to the start menu i could not find pc help and tools or anything else of that matter to do a system recovery. I even tried restarted the computer and hitting F10...nothing worked. Could anybody help me with this. Thanks :thumbsup:

Try F5 to boot straight to Safe Mode, or F8 to boot to the boot menu. Try to run System Restore from Safe Mode

System Recovery usually implies the use of manufacturers CDs to re-install the operating system and software so that you return the PC to the state it was in when purchased. This requires Recovery CDs which are supplied with the system. It is a feature of brand name computers, not available on other systems, it's not part of Windows XP (unless you're talking about 'Recovery Console').

Perhaps it would be better to explain what your friend wants to achieve?
