System Restore

My attempts to create a restore point in Vista have failed completely. For some reason the program starts to run, or appears to, but after a lengthy period it fails with a 'time out' notice.

Has anyone experienced and/or oversome this problem.

Try it in Safe Mode

Are you saying it only works in safe mode?

No it shouls work in windows.

If you have a full XP CD you could put it in the computer, then in the Run Box type

SFC /SCANNOW press enter not the space before the /

This will run System File Checker

Unfortunately Vista came preloaded without disc. The only bad thing about the deal for a new PC.

SInce there appears to be no simple solution perhaps it is a question of wait for Vista SP1

Have you tried running it without the CD?

Yes. That was my first post.

I have not yet tried n safe mode but will do so if all else fails but clearly this means shutting down and restarting which is not ideal.
