Experts,
I wanted to restore my Windows 7 Optimum to an earlier date and I do not have the Accessories folder that holds the System Restore. How do I recover?

If you believe the c drive is corrupt then I would just do a complete fresh install and make sure you do a full ntfs format.

This would be the quickest method

Hope you do not have any data on the drive

if you can copy off to a usb drive that would help
