What do you mean by "complete system restore?"


The way I'd read that is using your manufacturer's built-in restore feature to set the machine back to "out of the box" state.  If that's the case it's not directly Windows 10 related as far as what's going on, it's the manufacturer's utility.

So what do you suggest? I should have left it alone I guess but it was running slow. It's my parents computer they just bought it. None of us are savvy with this stuff. If you can help I would really appreciate it. Thanks

can you describe the process you followed to do the system restore ?   ......what you clicked on to start this process...?


If it is new, it can be returned ?
