System Restore won`t work.

  Granny. 15:30 01 Nov 2006

I ran a Virus check this morning, and got a warning that I had a Trojan worm, which apparently had corrupted a file, which couldn`t be found?

After looking at the help pages, I opened System Restore to try and go back, but it couldn`t do it.

I tries various highlighted dates, but each time I got the message that my computer couldn`t be restored to that point.

I then decided to do another Virus check, and this time it came back clear, so I have no idea what is going on!

Please has anyone got any ideas?

I have Windows XP and have Avast AntiVirus, ZoneAlarm, Spywarecatcher, AdAware and Windows Defender on my computer.

Thanks mammaks.
I see that carper suggests switching System Restore off then on again to clear it.

I know I`m going to sound absolutely stupid, but when I opened it, I couldn`t see where or how, to do that?

Also, someone else said that Windows Defender could be clogging it up.
I`ve only recently added that, so wonder if that could be the problem, and if I`d be better off uninstalling it?

All help very much appreciated. :)

I dont know about windows defender so cant advise there but to turn restore of go to system restore settings on the left hand side.

Turning it off, then on again has worked....
