After a computer crash that required doing a recovery, I began the tedious process of re-installing programs. I loaded an old version of "Norton UnInstall" and began deleting unworkable programs left on the machine. When I re-booted the computer my display screen contains what looks like an organized display, but the "words" are jibberish. There are a couple icons that bring up the "turn off" box. Is there a way to get to the restore screen with keystrokes since the typical route is not there. The same creen also comes up in the "safe mode"
Thanks, Rejohn

Sounds like your video drivers were removed. Re-install them.

Thanks sir terrorist. I had hoped that I could do a restore, so I wouln't have to do another recovery. But since I couldn't find a way to click on anything that brought this up, I've decided to go with the recovery. Hitting F10 and starting the recovery, it gave a window that said it would bring up Windows with a restore screen. That didn't work. So I've now started the the recovery, so we can consider this question closed. Thanks, Rejohn

I would toss the Norton Uninstall program. I have found that some of their so called fix utilities created more problems than they solved.
