I think I have a damaged file system.The problem is that I can`t turn on the system restore (Windows ME),whenever I do and restart the computer it is disabled again.Through searching around I`ve found that "fsck" would help diagnose the problem but I don`t know where to get it and if I do how to run it.Could anybody please help?
According to System Restore's help file, you must click the Apply button before you click OK in the last two examples, to save your configuration changes.
Wait a minute -- the OK button no longer saves my changes?
That's right. Sources within Microsoft say that Redmond's developers have long battled over this. The fight was won by the side that wanted to disable OK unless Apply is clicked first.
Now Windows Me has some OK buttons that work correctly, and some that don't unless you click Apply first. This idiotic decision has resulted in an interface nightmare. Maybe Microsoft will fix this soon.
Sorry folks these are all things I have tried.I discovered this when I tried to purge the system restore to delete two viruses I had,the anti virus software could neither clean or delete them.After a search on google the suggestion was to purge the restore archive and if this wasn`t obtainable the file system is damaged.To clear the restore archive go to DOS and type "DELTREE C:\RESTORE".Don`t get me wrong this is`nt causing any problems so far but if I do have problems I won`t be able to do a roll-back.
