Is there anyway to restore my computer without doing it through PC Settings on Windows 8?

When i say through pc settings, i mean clicking 'restore everything without affecting files' or 'restore everything and reinstall windows'

this is because every time i click on one of these it just says 'preparing' forever. i left my computer for about 12 hours and it was still preparing. so i was wondering if there was another way i could restore my computer

PS-I am restoring my computer because of a problem im having with my computer which i explained in this question : click here (you dont need to look at that if you dont want to)
