Displaying zoom list-Using Windows display settings

Problem:
I recently had to use system restore.  :(  Prior to that, I used to have a zoom list (by percentages) on the lower right corner of my screen.  Now it is gone.  I have gone to tools=internet options=advanced to click the  "use windows display settings on
web page controls" as instructed by "help" but the option is not there.   I have also right clicked on the to bar to customize it but the zoom list is not there either.
 How can I turn my zoom list back on?

Per the above, you should have uninstalled IE7
before doing the Repair Install. Since you didn't, Windows (and IE) is in a "confused state" and your only recourse now is a "clean install."

==============================
You will want to print these instructions for offline reference

Back-up any personal data then do a format & clean install of Windows.  Please note that another Repair Install (AKA in-place upgrade) will NOT fix this!

After the clean install, you'll have the equivalent of a "new computer" so take care of everything on the following page before otherwise connecting the machine to the internet or a network and before using a USB key that isn't brand-new or hasn't been freshly

TIP: If your computer came with an anti-virus free-trial preinstalled, it will be reinstalled (but invalid) after doing the clean install.
You must uninstall the free trial, download/run the appropriate removal tool (if necessary; see below), and reboot
before you install a replacement anti-virus application.

McAfee Consumer Products Removal Tool (only do Steps #1 and #2)

NB: If a Norton or McAfee free-trial is preinstalled and you want to install another application by the same provider (e.g., Norton 360; McAfee VirusScan Plus), you MUST uninstall the free-trial & run the removal tool before installing a new application from
the same provider.

Good luck.
Sorry I didn't have better news for you.

Some are essential - antivirus software for example - but others may not be. Right click each one and if there is a Settings menu, select it and turn off the option to start automatically with Windows. Some programs, such as Google Drive, can be manually started when they are needed instead of running all the time.
