    Maybe someone has seen this. It's on an Iview 705NB Android Netbook. The thing messed up so I, in all my infinite wisdom, did a Factory data reset from the Settings/Privacy tab when the NB was working. NOW all I get is "Factory data restoring, please waiting...." and I've been getting it for hours. What do I do? I'm not a programmer but I've work on a computer for years, so I can follow instructions. I am kinda new to the whole Android smart phone world. Please help! My grandaughter will love you forever!

    Thanks for the reply. I did exactly what it said to do, to no avail. I still have the same quote on the screen. I only have one more thing I'm going to try before I throw this thing against the wall. I'll be back.

    I tried extracting the files to the SD and it said to extract FIRST and copying one file and one folder, so I did. That didn't work so I copied the rest of the files to the SD and tried again...Nope! I still have the same message on the screen. I have a call in to the mfg tech support and I'm done for tonight. I'm shutting it down and going to bed. Thank you for your support.
