"lost system restore"

  Toy 19:20 21 Jul 2007

Have Windows ME and computer crashed and finally now working but have lost system restore. I cannot find it anywhere. Is there a way of getting it back? I have searched through the forums and tried run msconfig and launch system restore but does not work. Any ideas, sorry

Try click here or do a search for rstrui.exe

Do you Norton Security? as this may stop it working

  Toy 22:53 21 Jul 2007

No I do not. The only thing I have done is use CCleaner to help sort out a dll problem. This worked but now I do not have system restore and do not know the next step. Any ideas welcome

If you have the Win ME CD run setup over its self

My CD player is broken ahhh what do I do! Would I have to replace this and install the Win ME to get System Restore back or is there anything else that I could do? Sorry about this

I don't know if this works for ME, but, in XP you can check via Start/Control Panel/System/System Restore if the box "turn off System Restore on all drives" is ticked, if it is untick it.
