Can't Restore

ACER T120 Desktop XP pro SP3

I thought I had a problem today (now sorted) and wanted to SYSTEM RESTORE to a couple of days ago.

I got the message saying that it couldn't Restore,,,, so I tried to do it again going back 5 days.
I got the same message.

Have never come across this before & wondered if there is something wrong ?

Whilst i'm not desperate for today, I ought to know for the future.

Try in safe mode it usually works there.
If not try Malwarebytes free version to make sure your computer is clean.

If you are running Norton Products then you may get the message " Restoration incomplete. Your computer cannot be restored..." when you run System Restore.
For a resolution, refer: here

I have a couple of AV & AM programs running & I 'think' the machine is as clean as it can be. Will try S.Mode tomorrow.

I don't have Norton AV / AM. I do have Semantec Winfax 9, that I've had since it came out many moons ago - never had a problem with that before.

Will post results of S.Mode here.

cheers guys
