Can't "Restore" Win XP

Likes # 0

I have recently updated drivers, and it seems that something has not worked properly. So, I tried to go back with Restore, but now I can't restore further back than today! When I updated the drivers, each update requested a restore point which I ticked 'yes' to, but obviously something has gone wrong and I can't start again! The Windows 'Restore' program seems frozen on today's date! Can anyone help, please? geedad

,right click select Properties - driver tab - Roll back driver

And with regards to Restore, its now corrupt and needs turning off then back on and create a new restore point. All your old points are gone, so you will have to do the above
