I use my Windows XP system for a limited number of applications.  A couple of
weeks ago, it started bogging down.. a lot.  Now when I try to start up my
UPS Worldship, it says that the SQL Server is not running.  I tried to
restore to an earlier date, but that didn't fix it. Someone passing by said
to reset the computer to the original condition the day I received it, but I
don't know how to do that either.  Any data and software I need is backed up
separately, so resetting the computer would be fine.  Any suggestions on
either resetting the computer or starting the SQL Server, or...?
