Ok, this computer I have been working on. (couple threads now) I went to do a windows update and took a look at how far the updates went back. They went back to 2005. The computer was supposedly bought "new" last year for 4200$ w/ a printer. (i come to find out) The computer is a compaq nc6000. ( 1.7gh, 512ram, 30gig drive) It looks like the lady who the computer was recovered from gave us back a different computer thinking no one would know the difference. The lady did a wipe with a disk utility before she gave the computer back. The system restore points go back to February. Is it possible to restore the computer back to before she did the wipe if she did the wipe just a week or two ago?
