    Boot to bios.
    Enable boot menu which activates F-12 key.
    Press F-12 on restart & locate recovery there.

    Does it say anything about a Temporary Profile when you log in? Do what David says, but fair warning, it will delete all of your personal files, do you have anything important you will have to save?

Not very serious but. Whenever I come to this site, it seems I need to log in and give my passwprd each time. I go to several sites frequently, and this does not happen unless I have been doing a clean up of cookies, etc, on my computer. Do I need to alter somethin in my CP or settings?
