Bad times today.
While using the inter-web today my screen went blank, as normal thought was my fault (cause and fault not yet known), anyway for the best part of an hour and some i try to restart it, alas no joy (tho the blank screen was consistent) .
so in the end i tried the recovery option, this took a while and restored my factory settings which was helpful :)
Just took another 2 hours to re-install flash player!
The only hope is that most crap i had downloaded onto the here is gone and system will run faster.......
One step at a time eh?
