My computer has gone very very slow and I cannot use the start button or the task bar as it seems to be frozen, not sure if there is a virus on the computer or not.

I am trying to restore but not sure how to restore without using the start button.

Try downloading some Anti-Virus and run a scan to see if there are any viruses.

I use AVG, seems to be working well..

If all else fails you could reformat your computer. That's what I usually do.

Wait-a-sec. Surely to goodness you're not thinking that anyone would go online without an Ant-Virus program installed? :eek:

I mean, if he did, his computer could be buggered already. :(

liquorice, try booting into safe mode.
while the computer is booting up, hit the f8 key and select safe mode start up.
system restore is in the all programs -accessories-system tools folder.
as was suggested by others, you must make sure you have a robust firewall and anti virus installed, as system restore won't help you if a virus is the cause of your problem.
back any music, photos or important documents that you dont want
lose as soon as you can.
