HELP Can't find restore point.

  southpaw 19:01 24 Oct 2005


I've just been tiying up my pc and deleting game demos and programs (inc Kazaa) and lost my internet connection.

So I went to go to my restore point

All programs> then Accesories>System Tools> Empty

And there's nothing there also tried Help and support and nothing happens.

Any ideas? I'm running Windows XP.

If you have a Full XP disc, from Run type SFC /SCANNOW. And if you do not have a disc try it anyway

Ok. I've done that put the disc it and its loaded. What now?

Thanks so far.

In Run Box type SFC /SCANNOW press enter

Have you looked in Device Manager for any problem hardware? Scanned for spyware? Are you on broadband?

  southpaw 22:34 24 Oct 2005

I reinstalled windows and my broadband account.

Don't know what happened but its working now. Lost all of todays stuff though.

Thanks to all for the help though.
