How To Restore Computer To 48 Hours Ago?

Previous Windows OS's let me quickly and easily restore to a time that I wanted, however what I'm getting with 7 is "no restore points have been created". Hmmm. I've searched this forum for an explanation that makes sense to me to no avail; not yet ready to admit to stupidity but will acknowledge that I'm past middle age and well into frustration.

I'm in safe mode now; in regular mode my laptop has slowed to the point of only allowing my desktop to appear & I can't get anything else to work. Every time I click on something that infernal little blue donut just keeps running and running.

64 bit Sony. Is it possible to restore to a config that was working 2 days ago?

Can't Find Restore Date From More Than A Couple Of Weeks Ago
I built a Win 7 PC for recording MIDI and everything was going fine until recently the main application that I use has been crashing.I've talked to the manufacturers and they can't figure it out,but I have a feeling it's from some updates I did on Oct 20th 2012. I looked in my restore points and can't find anything earlier than a couple of weeks ago even when I check "show more".

Computer Slows Down After A Couple Of Hours Of Use: No More Info
This has been baffling me for at least a month now, my PC will randomly start to slow down after a few hours (2-4) of being used. This began to happen randomly and after no new software or updates where installed.So far I have tried to take off all my overclocks, run a CPU test for 24hours (stable) and all the defrags and disk cleanups that I could be bothered to run. Worst thing is this started happening a day before I was going to make a restore point.All my system info is on my profile.

EDIT: I forgot to mention where the slowdowns occur, they include programs taking a good 5 seconds to open and more confusingly sites take a good 30-40 seconds to load when shortly after boot it takes less than a second.I have checked my network usage and system resource usage and both are within their normal ranges.

Office Home Use - Installed 6 Mo. Ago, Now Getting Error 0xC004F074?
I purchased a license and installed Microsoft Office through my work's Home Use Program in February. It has worked without issue until recently.The other week, I started getting a Microsoft Office Activation Wizard any time I open an Office document. At the bottom of the Wizard window, it lists Error 0xC004F074 and has a countdown timer that now says I have "2 days left to activate. Ensure you are connected to your corporate network to enable automatic activationhis is my home computer that has never been connected to the corporate network.I do not recall the HUP being a trial, six-month license only.

BSOD When Computer Is Idle. No BSOD When Playing Games For Hours?
I started getting BSOD two weeks ago. As far as I can remember the first time I had a BSOD was on the day I installed Max Payne 3 (I read somewhere that the some guy had also this problem when he installed max payne). There were two occasions that I got a BSOD upon starting Max Payne 3. But lately I'm getting BSOD when doing low-load stuffs like browsing with no other apps opened. I've already done memtest with 10 passes with no errors. I'm 24 hours prime95 stable. I just don't get it! I've manually set my timings for my ram. I'm not doing any overclock. Everything is on stock settings.

Can't Restore My Computer
So a couple of weeks ago, I downloaded the Windows 8 Consumer Preview. After a week, it started crashing a lot, to the point where I couldn't get past the log on screen without it crashing. I wanted to uninstall Windows 8, but I found out that you can't. I decided to just restore my computer to its factory settings. I backed up all my files on 5 Verbatim DVD+R. Now I am using Windows 7 again. When I tried to restore the files on the DVD, the Back up and Restore feature wouldn't let me restore from the DVD. All my school work, picture, and music is gone now.

Restore Folders In Computer?
I have a Minecraft server in Kaspersky's safe run folder which is located in 'My Computer' so me and my brother have easy access between our user accounts (it's tiring going back and forth through our documents.) I removed Kaspersky and I'm sure I unchecked 'Remove Safe Run Folder' and it erased . I've tried data recovery software but it doesn't have support for folders in My Computer.

Restore Computer To Factory Defaults?
I remember a while back I got a BSOD, but I fixed it by reformatting my C drive, this didn't remove my OS or touch anything on my D drive however. I would now like to do the same, not because I have a problem but because my computer is becoming sluggish and I haven't reformatted for a long time. However, searching up how to reformat the C drive, without removing this OS seems literally impossible, every post I see just says the following: get your OS disk. Despite this, I managed to get the C drive back to factory defaults while keeping the OS, all my drivers for my hardware (graphics card, sound card etc.) intact. I would like to do the same again, if it is actually possible. This was originally a box PC so I don't have any CDs except for the one for my new graphics card which I replaced a faulty one with.

Can't Get Computer To Do A Factory Restore?
1st off, My user name is not a joke. I have a hp G72-B27CL Notebook that was purchased online from aGoodwill auction. The notebook looks brand new & in their listing for the auction they said it just needed a hard drive so I put my WD 500 GB hd in it & attempted to do a system recovery. It went through the whole process & ended with Welcome TO YOUR NEW HP COMPUTER, About a minute later it was showing Restoration Incomplete with the options to Retry or try to find out what the problem was, Well it would only allow me to try again, Which I did (actually 2 more times) Of course same results. Their is no recovery CD'S that came with the computer, However it does have the windows product key # on the back of it. This computer will not let me do anything else except keep trying to recover it. (Which is a total waste of time) Should I erase everything on that hard drive ? It really has nothing I care if I lose or not & how would I go about erasing the hard drive ? The computer I'm talking about wont let me do anything except what I have shared.

And I don't want to put the hard drive in another computer & mess up what ever computer I put it in. This really is a bummer because I felt I was getting a good deal + helping out a organization, So the bottom line is right now I have a pretty laptop that doesn't operate & I am currently down $232.00 + shipping cost. I truly apologize for the length of this post, But as I stated from the start I'm truly lost. Any suggestions & please remember you are replying back to someone that is truly lost, so if at all possible if you choose to respond. Talk in language I understand.

Restore Points After Restoring Whole Computer
My friend just tried to run a restore on his computer (against my advice) and he somehow uninstalled all of his programs and reset his rights to standard user. I know for fact he didnt have any restore points on his computer (company computer, they dont have it turned on) would this restore go back to his fresh install? I'm trying to figure out where to go from here.
