One of my flock was given an old 'Time' machine with Win2000 about a year ago. As he is a total newbie I cleared all reference to its past life[his sons] even down to removing it's 'Time' I/D and its tie up to a now defunct ISP So that short of a reformat this was a 'bare' machine.
And he has been having fun getting to grips with the Internet and so forth.
Then he hit a snag. I tried several fixes that did not seem to do much So I thought- OK system restore.
Well now here is the rub the system restored OK back 3 years with all his sons programs and Internet settings and so forth. So I have now set it to 'unrestore' and will work out his problems another way.
It will not now undo this restore or move forward to yesterdays or the day before's point. So what is the next move please.
That is an interesting point. System Restore is definitely there in System Tools not a third party add on such as 'Go Back' with which I am familiar from 98 days When I get the machine to-morrow I'll take a screen shot of the page for your own puzzlement.
I wonder, this is/was a 'Time' machine- can the 'big' brands have their own variations of Windows?
