hi, I put a restore point in then made a pigs ear of putting in a prog,,so went to the restore point, and it came back that nothing had been changed, because it could not restore. so I went to a restore point that the PC had put in, and i got the same thing.... any idea why?

thanks

Is System Restore switched on?

Normally you will find a System Restore date highlighted in bold where you have installed or uninstalled software, hardware, drivers etc or some other major change.

You should clear all corrupt restore points by turning it of, Reboot then turn it back on and create a new restore point. it should then work
