No XP Restore

Help please.

My computer seems to be making Restore Points OK as they are marked on the Calendar in Restore together with their details.

However if I try to Restore back to an earlier point the computer just hangs until I cancel without a Restore having been done.

shaduf, are you leaving it long enough? It takes a while to do the restore. j.

Thanks for the response but sadly that's not the answer. After about 10 seconds of disk activity nothing further happens. Tonight I went to watch the TV for an hour and when I came back nothing had moved.

os? virus scan? trojan scan? adaware scan? what on board security do you have?


  shaduf 20:40 20 Jan 2004

Windows XP Firewall
AVG Free Virus Software

Trojan scan, adaware scan, someone else said spyware. !!!

Cripes should I have all those as well - could one of those be the cause??

As well as my firewall and AV, I run Ad-aware click here and Spybot click here which I run regularly and SpywareBlaster click here which prevents most of it being installed. HTH TR
