Computer fails to restore to any previouse point.
Tried several points, PC goes through all the motions and finisheds tell me "unable to restoreto (.e.g.) 14 May".
Went into ControlPanel, System, Syetem restore appears to be active.
How do I get System Restore back again?

Operating System XP Home edition.
120Gb HD, 0.5Gb RAM

Try running System Restore in Safe Mode. That always works for me.

Just be aware that you cannot undo a Safe Mode restore (but why would you want to?).

Do you use Norton security if yes turn it off then do a system restore

Had the same problem. Used the repair function in SuperAntiSpyware Free Edition. It has a repair for System Restore.

Many thanks to all who responded.
Unticking the "tamper" function in Norton Security solved the problem.
