hi there! I need to use system restore to go back one day and regain control of my yahoo email login page. however, i did a scan or it updated, and has erased all my restore points prior to today’s date, and that does me no good. I desperately need to go back to the way my computer was running yesterday, because i could automatically login to my email account, and now it asks for the password which i do not remember. I have been doing it this way for months, now the info that I must have is locked away behind the login page. If i could just restore everything to the way it was yesterday, id be just great. Now, everytime i go to my history and try to get to my messages that way, it prompts me for the password!!!!!!! Arrrgh
! can someone please tell me how to get back to my happy place so that I can just go in and change the password like I should have done when I had access……
please advise!!! I started messing around with the developer tools because my email was taking forever to load, if that gives any insight to the problem , oh, and I used cccleaner yesterday around the time it changed the look of my whole desktop, and rebooted. Thank you soo much in advance to anyone who could assist me or walk me through the tunnel to get to my previous settings.
First bit of advice. Stop messing around and messing up Windows 7. Ccleaner should not be used except of pros who really know what they are doing.
If you lost your restore points, you can not restore.
If you lost your email password, call your email provider. Identify yourself and they will likely issue you a new password. Then learn the lesson. Write down your passwords and put it in a safe place and make sure your executor knows where it is.
A tip for future use on Restore points:
The default restore point space allotment in Windows 7 is about 3% of drive capacity. In almost all cases, the computer is using but a very small proportion of the space available. That makes it very practical to raise that 3% to say 8 to 10%. This strategy will yield far more restore points that will give you much more flexibility in recovering a bad situation.
To change the allotment, type create in the text box above the start globe. Choose Create a restore point. Click configure. Move the slide to the right as much as you see fit. Setting it at 50 Gigabytes will have no affect if you have a 500 Gigabyte drive and are only using about 100 or so, which is highly typical.
