What is computer restore?

Question

When I start up the computer, it starts up very slow. Then, when I try to go through the disc checking process, it always seems to get to 14% and go no further. When I skip the disc checking, the computer starts up very slow and when I finally get in it takes forever for it to load and makes it extremely hard to do anything on it because it is so slow... is this a virus or something?

I don't believe it's a virus that is forcing your computer to run slowly, sometimes computers start to lag with the more and more unnecessary data stored in memory on its' hard drive I would suggest you to run a disk defragment but I don't really want you to sit through it because you mentioned that it takes forever for the operating system to load and run I highly suggest that you simply run a restore on your pc You should also save any important documents on your computer, you want to make sure to do that first because you WILL lose everything on your computer What a computer restore does is it restores it back to the way it originally was when you first purchased it So, wipe clean those dusty restore cds that came along with your computer when your first bought it and pop them into the cd-rom Follow the instructions on the monitor to restore your computer and all will be fixed Good Luck!!
