System Restore

Can anyone help me by explaining why I cannot get the system restore function to de anything but tell me that "restoration was unsuccessful"? This is the case however many restore points I try to use. It is switched on and I use XP.
I seem to have lost my financial accounts when for an unknown reason my Money Program was updated and attemts to restore have, as stated, failed miserably.
Many thanks

Only way to get it back working is to turn it off then back on. You will lose all Restore Points

Are you using Norton for your security?

If you are you have to temp turn it off then do a system restore then turn Norton back on,

You may be able to do this by right click on the Norton icon in the system tray {task bar} there may be a option there
