Specs: Windows 7
I have done a system restore and keep receiving this message. I need information on this computer as I work on a non-profit organization. Is there any way to get the information off of this computer onto another one and then I will try a restore to factory default. I just don't want to lose info I have on hard drive. I am not very computer literate so please be patient with me. Thank you for your time!

Two possibilities come to mind as far as recovering the data before doing a factory restore.
First you can remove the hard drive and plug it temporarily into another computer as an internal hard drive or with a hard drive external case you can purchase (I prefer the internal method because you do not have to purchase the case and the transfer will be faster internally). You can save the data on the other hard drive, a flash drive, an external hard drive you may want to use as a back up drive in the future, or if the files are not too large, a few DVD's.
The second option would involve making a Live Linux DVD from a download that will allow you to boot to Linux (not install) and use that to access the hard drive and save your data to any of the above portable sources. The advantage of this method is you will not need to open the computer and remove the hard drive and you will not need a second computer to save the data.

Note also that if you have a Windows repair disk (if you made already from within Windows 7 or it can still be made from another Windows 7 machine as long as both are 32bit or 64bit) you can do a system restore with it if the internal system restore is corrupted or inaccessible. This may help you recover without a factory restore and you only need a blank CD and a working Windows 7 machine of the same variety.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.
