When you reboot, is F11 one of the boot options presented? If so, selecting that will do a restore to factory settings. It has to be done from a reboot or a cold boot. If F11 is not presented as an option, the restore partition may not be intact.
Thanks for the info, I would have never known that because the splash screen does not present F11 option. I hit F11 anyway and I was greeted with the system recovery menu and yes, the factory setting restore option is present. Right now the computer takes about 4 to 5 minutes to boot up before I can use it, it is stuck a long time on the IBM Access Connection. I am still trying to do a clean up and tweak a bit and if I don't succeed, I will restore to the factory OS
