System Restore will not work.

My husband used some info from Computer Active to speed up our computer, since then it will not go to any Restore Point you select.
He has not had the time to work out just what he did and although it is not a major problem, it worked before why not now?
We have Windows XP.
Thanks
Enviro's wife.

Have you tried Last good Configuration in safe mode.

Could he have pushed the slider for Restore Points space down too far?

  provider 2 13:05 11 Mar 07

If so, Start> ControlPanel> System> click System Restore tab. Click Settings and adjust slider to 10%.

Any joy?

Thanks all, have looked on these links, slider is set at 12% and I can't find out how to get to Disk Space Usage. I don't seem to have Performance & Maintenace in my Control Panel and if I click on Disk Clean Up it fails and sends an error report.
I think I've got gremlins!
Set Windows Defender on 7/3/07 going and it found Win32/SpyDawn but said it had suceeded in removing.....Norton did not show it at all.
Will try the safe mode next.

If you have Norton the self protect function prevents System Restore from working. It is necessary to turn this off to use System Restore see click here

As good a reason to ditch Norton as any, I would have thought. I don`t like the way that site switches on my printer control panel either, without so much as a by-your-leave.
