    I don't understand why a system restore didn't return my pc to the same state as it was. The system restore took ages to do also.

    Because system restore is not the same as restoring from a backup.

    If you restore from a backup then everything is restored to how it was. System restore will replace certain system files (and uninstall programs and so on) but it will not restore your personal data. Your browsing history is stored in C:\Users\<your name>\appdata\local directory and this isn't replaced when you do a system restore.

    In future you'd be better off making a backup using Macrium or similar and using that as a base point if you run into issues.

But now when I open a new page its just blank with a search bar. There are no 'most visited sites' and there is no news feed? Can anyone tell me what has happed and how to fix it? thanks
