    What happens when I do a recover on my new Lenovo G710

    Purchased a Lenovo G710 laptop with Windows 8.1. Was anxious to start setting it up. Found that usernames and passwords were used everywhere. At first, I misspelled the username for my son and he gave me the wrong PW. That will give you a clue to the rest of the day. During this process I installed a couple of email clients, trying to get one to accept a PW. That is when he called me and admitted that he gave me the wrong PW.
    Reading the manual, I find that the restore operation will reset the system to where it was when it left the factory.

    My question is; If I use the restore and remove the email clients will I be able to START OVER with the setup? That would save me a lot of time and mistakes.

    Like I said on the start of this thread, not very well I'm afraid, the computer is brand new. Only a couple of days ago it was pristine. I,m going to look at it now and see if there is a restore point. If there is I assume it's not early enough for what I want to do. The Lenovo "On Click Restore" may be something that gets me to a "start over" place.

    Yes, the Lenovo One Click Restore can restore the computer to it's factory new state.

    I did try a regular restore and it didn't take me back far enough. Did a "One Click Restore" and it did what I wanted. I think I'm going to have to do it again. I may have goofed up again. I'll take a look at the tutorials to see if any of them are a help. I don't mind someone recommending one.
