I'm using XP and have tried 4 or 5 times to restore to a restore point which have all failed to restore to that point.I have checked and System restore Is monitoring all drives.Is there another way I can restore to an earlier point?

press F8 on startup and choose the "last known good configuration" option, might work. What problem are you having that you need to use system restore?

From RUN, enter services.msc
This will bring up all services that are running on your machine. Scroll down to 'System Restore Sevices', and check the status.
It may be turned off, if so click the service and select one of the options.
