System Restore

Recommended Posts

I tried to use system restore and it said it was unable to restore. I tried different dates with the same message. I scanned with norton,counter spy,ad-aware,kaspersky online scanner and spybot with nothing found. Can anyone help with this problem. I have windows xp home sp2. Thank You.

One option that may work is to turn off system restore reboot and then turn it back on.

Alternatively you could try the same in safe mode.

System restore sucks (my own personal opinion)

 

Id suggest you get yourself a proper back up program if you value your data.

 

I use Acronis True Image, but there are a few good ones out there.

I used to use Acronis, but after lots of problems I have now moved to ShadowProtect - much easier to use and much more reliable

Try doing a restore from the Safe Mode administrator account.

What version of Norton? It is possible that Norton is blocking the restore attempt.
