hope someone can help
Windows XP SP2
I see an icon that says System and have double clicked it , it opens up the properties as when I right click My Computer , still no System Restore Tab
i think error 5 is a registry problem as it would prompt you to turn it back on if you wanted to use "system restore"
need to do a bit more delving...
you may learn a valuable lesson after this geo g i have looked at this website and it looks a bit dodgy to me, best bit of advice for now is to look at (when its fixed) backing up your registry before you start changing anything in it..........
Control Panel > System > System Restore. Make sure the 'turn off system restore for all drives' is unchecked.
Start RUN and type REGEDIT
Go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\SystemRestore.
If a "DisableSR" value doesn't exist, go to the Edit menu, select New, DWORD value, and create the value.
Set the value to 1 to disable System Restore or 0 to enable System Restore.
follow instructions to see what value you have , but as you have no restore points as such this will only reenable system restore for future reference it is not going to help with undoing the tweeks that have slowed your PC down...
The value was set to 0 , I changed it to 1 and the System Restore tab has reappeared on system properties but when I try to untick Turn Off system restore , after ticking apply I get a message saying 'System Restore encountered a error trying to enable/disable one or more drives,please restart your machine and try again' ive restarted but no joy
try Setting System Restore to only monitor the C:\ drive, and made sure there
is sufficient free disk space on the drive. See if this setting stays.
the link may help..
The tab on System Prperties keeps disapearing when I close the properties ... I have to goto HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\SystemRestore and change the value to 1 to restore everytime I want to access the Restore tab , when I untick the box to enable Restore all my drives are greyed out and I cant access them :/ ...
I'm stuck as what to try next
Q. How can I verify that the System Restore services are running on my computer?
Use the following procedure:
To verify that System Restore services are running from Control Panel:
Click Start, Control Panel, then Performance and Maintenance
Click Administrative Tools, Computer Management, then Services and Applications.
Click Services, and then click System Restore Services. Ensure the service is set to Automatic and the status is Started
To verify that System Restore services are running using the command prompt:
Click Start, Run, then type CMD in the control box
Press Enter, then type Net Start at the command prompt
Ive just done a little research into your problem and found the above from click here
Not sure if this will cure your problem but may lead to a solution.
