You have the choice of going to system restore which is undoing the recent system changes or going to the advance recovery method.

Make sure you disconnect everything except the keyboard,mouse and monitor. This will bring you to: welcome to the recovery manager click next.

System recovery will ask you if you wish to make a recovery disk now or do you want to do it later. You will need three DVDs to do this so if you don’t have them then click please remind me later.

If you have already done this click do not remind me again and click finish. Make sure you either go to http://www.cnet.com or http://www.microsoft.com to load a free antivirus to protect your computer while on the internet.
