System restore does not work

I tried to restore my system using the facility in Windows and it was not able to work. I clicked the last solid date and the Turn off indicator was not set on. Any ideas?

"and the Turn off indicator was not set on" - I don't understand - please explain.

System Restore tab on System Properties has a box which, when ticked, turns off the restore facility

Do you get an error message - what actually happens?

A system restore page says that the restore was incomplete and that I should try another date.

Trying another date brings up the same message.

My system restore will not work if I have the virus checker running in the background (ie its normal state). Try turning it off (you may have to dig out its processes in Task Manager).

For safety you may wish to disconnect from the internet first.
