System Restore does not work

  Chickenleg 23:49 18 Sep 2006


All of a sudden my system restore will not recognise any restore points.
On boot up I am also now getting the Windows Installer trying to install Roxio Media Creator 7 which I already have, and working on my machine.
ANY help would be greatly appreciated

Many thanks

For the Install check MSCONFIG from the run box Startup Tab. For restore you can do nothing with it as its corrupt other than turn it off, then turn it back on to start it working. You will not have anything to go back to as it was corrupt.

I am resigned to the fact that I can no longer restore and will have to turn this off and restart.
I am a complete novice - what do I look for in msconfig for the install of Roxio?

Look for the Program in MSCONFIG, and remove the tick from the box as above under Startup Tab
