    Hope this is the right place?, I need restore help


    I made a backup this morning, and did some downloading which created a problem on my system. Programs would not work so after a lot of effort I did the refresh action. The system is working but all the programs have been removed. I have my system image file on another drive, but cannot find how to re-install. Any suggestions

    Regards

    I have created a repair disk. I am in the Controlpanel/recovery but When I click on"Open System Restore" it only sees the backup I made a couple of hours ago, not the one from this morning which I want to use.

    Sounds like you over wrote the backup, you can only have one backup on the drive.

    It seems that refresh deleted all my programs, is there any other way to get them back. The back file from this morning looks ok at 124Gb

Hi, I hope this is the correct area to ask this question I felt a kind of falls into tweaking or optimization. I need some kind of a Windows 8 theme that is on the dark/black side. But it's also got to actually work as close to 100% as possible.
