MAJ, the 2 methods don't work for me....sorry for ignorance but how do I System Retore please?

Start - Accessories - System Tools -system resore

My compuetr refuses to be Restored to any backdate.
Any more suggestions please?

MAJ's second suggestion must work! you must be typing the code wrongly. Go to Start/Run/type sfc /scannow (Watch the space between sfc and /) you will need your XP CD. That should cure your problem, it will also correct any errors you may have with System Restore at the same time.

Rawprawn, I carefully went thru the routine, it took about 15 minutes to scan, but still the same problem, also no System Restore....OE seems to work ok, except fot this Other Address thing.

Go to system restore and turn it off, then reboot, turn it on again and reboot once more, you will lose all previous restore points. I will have a think about OE import.

but if i lose all restore points how can i restore to a backdate?

Well you won't be able to restore, but you will be no worse off will you. Have you no independant backup? if not I suggest you invest in a profram such as Acronis True Image.
