go to control panel-system-system protection and make sure the drive(s) you want have a tick in the box.if they have click on create and see if it will create a restore point and at least you will find out if it's working.
why were you wanting to restore? if your pc isn't running correctly then virus or spyware can wipe all your restore points.if so you could download update and run malwarebytes and superantispyware in safe mode.obviously ignore if that's not the caseclick here
I have two faults which I suspect are registry. Internet explorer takes up top twenty minutes to come up but is immediate in safe mode and,as I said, system restore won't work. I have deleted my AVG in case there was a fault. I have not with spyware but might try it. Meanwhile I have bought an update Vista disc and am wondering if I just update qwhether the fault will remain or shoulod I do a clean insert but would lose many files.
If you have gone to the expence of getting an update disc to vista, then I would just go ahaead and do it. The update will put its new file system in place because its different to XP. Before you start though, think about your periferals. Do they work with Vista. You can do a check on line for that. You should back up all your personal stuff also because these will be wipped out during the install. If you have a lot, put them onto a DVD disc, that will save a bit of time changing cd's over.
