Hello all - I'm a newbie so please be gentle - and apologies if this is in the wrong place
My son in law has a gaming PC - He's been messing around with the settings (obviously deleted something he shouldn't have) and now the PC is in a state of perpetual nothingness
The computer will boot - but it takes a good 10 minutes to get to the desktop - There are now no icons on the desktop and it is not possible to get onto the internet - Nor is it possible to run any programmes (I have tried to run a system restore but to no avail)
Like i say, I have tried to run a system restore, a repair and tried to boot into safe mode but it's not having it - It will let me get into the command prompt but will not run anything instructed from there either
Any suggestions on how to fix this? I would be quite happy to reinstall Windows, but ATM cannot format or install anything!
Thanks in advance
