    How do I get my computer to reset back to the original settings that I had
    when I bought it from the shop? I want to set the original settings back to
    2/9/04. I can only find a setting that says; I can boot-up using the last
    setting that worked " I am talking about the settings when I boot-up in safe
    mode". My computer boots up fine, it's just that I do not have the know-all
    to change things when I get conflicts and I think it would be easier to go
    back to that date? I am using XP home addition. Please could you tell me
    step by step. Thank's for any help.

    LOL

    Try 'System Restore CD'. Quicker to type and gets the desired result.
