Answers :

Have you tried to go into Safe Mode when the computer first starts? As soon as the initial Dell splash screen is displayed, start tapping the F8 key. A start-up menu will eventually be shown. Use the down arrow key to highlight Safe Mode at the top of the menu and then press <enter>. The computer should start in Safe Mode. It will take a short time. Once it has started, a window will come up telling you that it is in safe mode. Read the message carefully. If you click OK, you will go into Safe Mode. If you click Cancel, you will be able to do a system restore. Click Cancel and follow the process for a system restore. Restore to a date before you did the downloading. It is a pretty straight forward process. The computer will go through the restore process and restart when it is finished.

Good luck, and please let me know how it works out!
