I have a Toshiba laptop running XP, I can only get it to boot into safe mode. Otherwise it tries to boot and goes to a blue screen and I have to re-boot, with the sae effect. Can anyone suggest a cause and maybe a solution?
You don't lose your own documents using System Restore.
"When you use System Restore, you can revert to a saved state without losing personal data including Word documents, e-mail settings and messages, and your Internet favorites list. System Restore won't lose any data you have stored in the My Documents, My Pictures, or My Music folders either."
