System Restore wont work

  novice3 22:45 25 Jul 06

There are plenty of restore points but it wont restore to any of them. It appears to work but then tells me that it cannot be restored and that no changes have been made to my computer. What should I do? (Windows XP)

I Had the same problem. I switched off system restore and switched back on again. This rectified it but you do lose previous restore points.. If they aren't working anyway,not a great loss. Carper

Hi VoG,
It says:

Restoration Incomplete

Your computer cannot be restored to (then gives date and name of the point I tried to restore it to)

No changes have been made to your computer

To choose another restore point, restart System Restore

Did you follow the advice from carper? that usually works.

I did them same as carper and it worked.
Also check in "services" that it is set to auto.

No I didn't as he said that I would lose my restore points.... I was hoping that there might be another way.
