If it's not now working you will have to turn it off and lose all your restore point. Then you have turn it back on so it will work again but you will not be able to go back as the points will be all gone. You need to sort your computer out before restarting Restore.

So post the Problems, You say it is going Slow this can be Virus or Fragmented drive among other things

I have AVG anti virus and i had a virus that popped up two days ago and it healed it, i think it was a trojan!!

WOODCHIP- you say i will lose all my restore points if i turn it off but i cant use them anyway!!

Restore cannot run as a Result of the VIRUS.

But i deleted the file that was in quarrantine!!

I have just checked in the AVG test results, the last virus it picked up was on the 10th and it was healed or if it was sent to quarantine, i deleted it!!

It might be incredimail that is the problem i have been useing it for some time without any probs at all, few months ago found a virus in one of the letter styles uninstall and reinstall the prog and see what happens.
Spy/malware may also be why your PC is running slow
