Restore to "out of the box" state with Factory Recovery.

Method for running Factory Recovery depends on make & model of your computer. Refer to the manufacturer's user manual or visit their website and go to the "Support" section.

Note that Factory Recovery will erase all data from the Windows partition on the hard drive.

✔ Best Answer
If you burn a Live Linux disk like Puppy Linux on another computer and then boot to that (do not install), you will have access to the hard drive and your files. Save these to an external drive for safe keeping before proceeding with any restore.

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