My system resrore is not working. I make restore points but when I try to roll it back they are not there and I get message saying can't restore to this point try another one.
How do I fix this?
Also my PC goes straight into my desktop and not the welcome screen even though I have set it up for 2 users.
What am I doing wrong?

Hi you seem to have a couple of problems.Have you ran all of your security programs just to make sure that you have not got a virus.If you could let us know what security programs that you have installed and what Firewall.SystemRestore will only restore to the boxes in heavy print.

Had a similar problem. I could restore in Safe Mode - some times.
I discovered that SuperAntiSpyware has a repair option for System Restore. Used that and have had no problems since. It's free so you could give it a try.

As matofthemint has suggested, I should try running SR in Safe Mode. I invariably find that this works.

Just be aware that a system restore run in Safe Mode cannot be undone.
