    Need help resetting windows

    Hi, is there a way to fully reset windows 10?
    I've used the built in tools with windows to reset the pc and after it restarts things still remain - my desktop wallpaper is still the same, my user account is still there, most of all the problem I was trying to remove is still there too.
    I've also tried the option to 'remove everything' (or some similar name) and after 4 hours of waiting it just gives the message that something went wrong and no changes have been made....

    Is there any way to do a completely fresh install without having to format the entire thing and boot the installation media from usb?

    How to factory reset Cisco 1700 Router

    Hopefully I can help you here....its a very common thing to happen.

    First, I take it you dont know the passwords for console access or telnet/ssh?

    I will assume that these devices belong to you.

    step 1. Plug a cisco console cable into a serial port on your pc
    step 2. Plug other end into Cisco console port
    step 3. Using hyperterm or putty or similar connect to the serial port
    step 4. boot router, and make sure you clearly can see the output (this confirms you have good serial comms)
    step 5. if this fails, adjust the comm port settings (9600, 8,1,n are the default)
    step 6. now you have to do the only hard part...send the break command:

    Break command list: Break Commands

    Go down the list and match your OS and SW and try the sequence suggested.

    If this fails several times do what I do: Install putty (free) and then to send a break so you can get into rommom just hit "ctrl-a b".
