Help

My Acer Ferrari 1100 with windows vita developed either a virus or windows was corrupted and after attempting all repairs I reloaded windows (successfully ) returning the laptop to factory condition. I did this as I had an up to date all users backup on a usb stick. Now when I attempt to restore the files I get a message 'Windows was unable to load the files due to a problem with the backup catalogue' any ideas would be appreciated ( in low tech language please )

Perhaps it would be helpful - restoring separate files and folders.

Windows Backup as never been any good, You should have used Imaging Software to create an Image such as Acronis. To get your backup to work, you have to first restore all the programs back on the PC as at when you used Windows Backup,
