114 errors- Windows Vista Home Premium
I am hoping if I can restore everything on my pc this will fix a lot of my problems.
Part of the reason why old desktop take so long to start and various errors is because of all the applications you've installed. Reducing the number of applications which start-up when Windows boots enables you to get to the desktop faster and increases the memory available.
Press Windows+R and type msconfig and click Ok. Select the Services tab, tick 'Hide all Microsoft services' and see what's left. There may be services you can live without and clearing the tick box prevents them from running. For example, Firefox works perfectly well without the Mozilla Maintenance Service. On the Startup tab (click Task Manager in Windows 8), are lots of programs that start with Windows. Knowing what to disable isn't easy, but you can use Google to search for items and see if they are necessary, useful or neither of those.
System Restore can return your laptop's system files and programs to a time when everything was working fine, potentially preventing hours of troubleshooting headaches. It won't affect your documents, pictures, or other data. Please back up important changes(files, documents) before you perform system restore.
