Windows Me and Ssyem Restore

  User-A039F74C-8E2E-41F4-A0FDB7F00987D758 18:23 26 Feb 2003

I have been running Windows Me without problems since it became available. I have formatted my hard drive and reinstalled Me but now the System Restore will not work. I have checked that this function is not disabled. Does anyone have any idea why it does not now work and have a possible solution. Thanks

"....but now the System Restore will not work"

In what way, does it not work, sunflowerUK? Will it not start, or does it start and not do anything? Also, do you have McAfee installed?

Have you been to Windows Update yet? There is a patch to enable system restore points that are created after Sep 2001.

When I select a Restore Point my system goes into a restart almost immediately. Once restarted the message says unable to restore, no changes have been made to your computer at this time.

Sorry, I do not have McAfee installed.

assuming that you have already downloading the system restore patch from the windows update website, try disabling system restore and then re-starting it again.

Right click on my computer, select properties, find the trouble shooting page and put a tick in the necessary box. Re-start your p/c and re-enable system restore.

I apologise for not updating the postings. I have tried on numerous occasions to download the update to Me generally, and System Restore specifically, but a critical update (which they say must be installed first as a stand-alone download)will download on my system but will not install - my computer simply freezes. It has been suggested that I have a problem with my hard drive, and it does seem a bit on the slow side lately. Does anyone have any ideas on this or how I may be able to rectify these problems?
