    Well, as is customary for my computer...it gives me one big problem every so often, and well i guess tonight it was time for another one since its been working alright for awhile. I was online, doin my online thing, when the computer just decided to overload and freeze up...so i reset it, as was the only thing i could do, and i get the bootup screen and whatnot, then the screen that asks me if i wanna go into safemode...only, when i tell it to, it does nothing. if i tell it to go to normal mode, it does nothing. im not sure what the other 2 things are that are there so im not touchin em. but i popped the startup disk in, got into dos, and all my programs are there thankfully, so at least nothing easily noticeable has been deleted. But you know how windows has the system restore that lets you restore from save points it automatically makes? Is there a way to access and run this from dos? cuz i cant seem to find it. I did this once a while back when my computer wouldnt boot up on me and i dont know what the hell i did or how i did it
