I was trying to do a System Restore on my computer to two months previous
today (January). Windows is now not working on my computer now and I don't
know what to do to fix it. The Start Menu and Bar won't even show and I can't
do another System Restore to undo the one I've just done... It's a mess!! Can
someone help me!? I'm also in a foreign country (El Salvador), and I have no
access to dial 800 numbers to call the manufacturer of my computer (Toshiba).
I don't know what to do.

If you have your installation CD you can perform a repair installation: this
will reset XP.

Insert the Windows XP CD into your computer's CD-ROM or DVD-ROM drive, and
then restart your computer.
When the "Press any key to boot from CD" message appears on the screen,
press a key to start your computer from the Windows XP CD.

Note Your computer must be configured to start from the CD-ROM or DVD-ROM
drive. For more information about how to configure your computer to start
from the CD-ROM or DVD-ROM drive, see your computer's documentation or
contact your computer manufacturer.
You receive the following message on the Welcome to Setup screen that
appears:
This portion of the Setup program prepares Microsoft Windows XP to run on
your computer:

To setup Windows XP now, press ENTER.

To repair a Windows XP installation using Recovery Console, press R.

To quit Setup without installing Windows XP, press F3.
Press ENTER to set up Windows XP.
On the Windows XP Licensing Agreement screen, press F8 to agree to the
license agreement.
Make sure that your current installation of Windows XP is selected in the
box, and then press R to repair Windows XP.
After you repair Windows XP, you may have to reactivate your copy of Windows
XP.
