That's not an Ancestry question, it sounds like a computer question, and it all depends on your operating system, and it's a very easy task.
I assume you're using a Microsoft Windows OS of some kind, and there are instructions all over the place for it, again, depending on which specific OS you have.

Here is the link to a page for Windows 7, but if you're using another OS, like XP or Vista or something, you can easily find them by doing a Google search for "System restore" and you'll get all of the options:

It is Windows Vista I am using, with a Firefox browser.
Thanks a lot for the link and suggestions. I can try that.

Right, thank you. I am not so good at the technical side of this. The experts on Roots speak in a language or jargon that is unfamiliar to me. Not their fault but I just can't figure out their answers, so I will probably take it to a computer shop and have to pay a dollop of money to have it fixed. Thanks anyway. (My idea was that if I placed my question on the Newbie board, I might get a reply that was easier to understand).

You may wish to try a list I admin at RootsWeb: SENIOR-NEWBIE@rootsweb.com . You would need to subscribe first and you don't have to be a "senior" to subscribe but the purpose of this list is to help non-techies and seniors who tend to know know less about computers with technical issues in baby steps.
