No XP Restore

Help please.

My computer seems to be making Restore Points OK as they are marked on the Calendar in Restore together with their details.

However if I try to Restore back to an earlier point the computer just hangs until I cancel without a Restore having been done.

shaduf, are you leaving it long enough? It takes a while to do the restore. j.

Thanks for the response but sadly that's not the answer. After about 10 seconds of disk activity nothing further happens. Tonight I went to watch the TV for an hour and when I came back nothing had moved.

os? virus scan? trojan scan? adaware scan? what on board security do you have?

Windows XP Firewall
AVG Free Virus Software

Trojan scan, adaware scan, someone else said spyware. !!!

Cripes should I have all those as well - could one of those be the cause??

As well as my firewall and AV, I run Ad-aware click here and Spybot click here which I run regularly and SpywareBlaster click here which prevents most of it being installed. HTH TR
