I have a problem with system restore on my PC. I can go all the way along to choosing a date then I click next to start the restore but it goes no further. I have tried repeatedly to access, with no success.
Can anyone help please?

Try running it in safe mode.

Restart the computer.

Some computers have a progress bar that refers to the word BIOS. Others may not let you know what is happening.

As soon as the BIOS loads, begin tapping the F8 key on your keyboard. Do so until the Windows Advanced Options menu appears.

If you begin tapping the F8 key too soon, some computers display a "keyboard error" message. If this happens, restart the computer and try again.

Using the arrow keys on the keyboard, select Safe mode and then press Enter.

This will check your system for files being intact and in correct versions.

Sorry about all that. I posted the message but it stated that there was an error so I tried again and again.

Obviously there wasn't an error after all!

If Restore does not work you will have turn it off and lose all your retore points. then turn back on and create new restore point
