    So I posted a question about a nightmare sticky-filter-toggle-mouse scroll-kets situation I was having. After trying every suggestion I could find I decided it was best to do a system restore.
    That was 3 hours ago.
    I got my manual and pressed f11 and it said press f11 for system restore so I did it so I'm sure thats the program I'm in, but for 3 hours all its done is the same thing over and over and over...says "windows is loading files" and then goes through a reboot process. Some people posted things similar to this but mentioned a blue screen- I have no blue screen and no real idle time. Just the normal reboot screens and the "windows is loading files" screen.

    Is this normal? I hope so. I cant deal with more computer nonsense today!

    well...it wasnt normal. I hit restart and the REAL restore came up. Stupid computer. I'd only rebooted like 3 times previously. It just waits until I get desperate, pull out the work computer and plea online for help.

    So, the restore process was successful (I think) but its stuck in this reboot cycle. It says "windows is loading files", just like it did before I was able to finally get the restore process to work. Then it reboots and repeats over and over. My laptop is totally worthless now, what is going on? How can I get it out of this??

    It may be time for professional hands on help.
