System restore not working

  wildhouse 00:00 31 Dec 2006

I have been having problems with my computer and have tried system restore. However, I get a blank page and no wizard or anything when I access system restore (either from Accessories and the Help and Support areas. Any ideas?

Try Start-Search-All Files and Folders, Type in the top box SYSTEM RESTORE and see what comes up in the results.
If you find something that looks like it, Then right click on it then click on "open containing folder"

Try a system file scan, go to Start/Run/type sfc /scannow (Watch the space between sfc and /) hit enter. You will need your XP CD

Thanks to all who have replied. Things are getting worse. Search all files no longer works at all; have tried Start/Run/type sfc /scannow - says it can't find it; regsvr32 jscript.dll
regsvr32 vbscript.dll - these 2 are ok but with
regsvr32 /i mshtml.dll I get the message mshtml.dll was loaded, but the DLLRegisterServer entry point was not found. This file cannot be registered; Windows Defender has also now stopped working - says application failed to initialise: 0x800106ba. A problem caused Windows Defender to stop. Am now a bit concerned about changing anything else. Help!
