Hi. I run windows XP home and until today I have had no problem using system restore. However, when I came to use system restore today it will neither create a restore point or let me restore to an earlier time. When i try to create a restore point I get a message that says a "restore point cannot be created and say's to restart the computer" When I restart the computer and try again I get the same message,And as I have said it will not restore to an earlier time. Can anyone help? Thanks in anticipation. leadwellie.
Techno M/softs first answer is to make sure you have insatlled latest updates .Now I have the same prob as the original post but damned if I'm going to install SP3 as thats all that is on offer without the ability to do a restore .Would anyone care to give an insight into doing it by trying to restore in Safe mode .OK getting into safe mode is ok but never having been there how does one get out also if the restore is succesful will it now work in normal running. I have tried the wipeclean and start again on redstore but no joy I can create points but cannot restore to them
