Help urgently required.
Have windows Xp Home was working fine earlier this evening; went to check email at 9.00pm computer froze on desktop as soon as clicked mouse button.
Tried system restore but has not helped: able to work in safe mode but does not read cd-rw drive so cannot backup files; mouse is working ok .

Have had another weird problem don’t know if related, when going up and down all programs stops at internet. white box appears and have to reboot computer.

Am writing this on old windows 95 machine.

Thanks in anticipation

Do as you would to access Safe Mode click here but select Safe Mode with Command Prompt.

At the > prompt enter


and press Enter. Choose an earlier Restore Point.
