Linnie is asking: (2 answers)
O.T. I have a mess on my hands and am hoping someone can give me some help. My cat was sitting next to me while I was browsing allrecipes 2 days ago. I got up to make coffee and a little while later when I returned to my laptop kitty was sprawled out on top of the keyboard and my recipe site was taken over by Wikipedia in Chinese. I have lost my Yahoo home page and all my preset sites. I get yahoo axis when I log on but how do I recapture my old stuff?

Do you know how to restore your computer to an earlier time?

I tried my history but it would not list yahoo in the scroll and I did find my recipe site and misc. others but no yahoo for any day.

if your using windows xp click start all programs... click on accesories... system tools... click on system restore... and follow the instructions to pick the date you would like to restore to

If you are using a different operating system, Google "how to restore my computer to a different date" and get instructions there. Is your cat a Siamese?

Thank you ladies. Will give it a shot. Darn cat.

Had to do the same dang thing for the same dang reason just a few days ago!

Nope. Cat is a mixed breed rescue who loves to scrub my keyboard with her paws. I think she'd make a great Christmas gift for somebody else about now. :)

Thanks. Am working on it. Yahoo Axis is like a side bar for my preferred sites...I'm on a mac.

omg my cats have messed up my laptop more than once but not to this degree. I sure hope you got it straightened out. I make sure I close mine when I walk away from it now. One of my cats thinks I bought it for her to sleep
