i had some sort of problem last night and had to do a restore.first the pointer icon kept changing to the hour glass rapidly then i found outlook was not showing any emails in my folder just the headers,also when i tried various sites the pages were not showing any graphics.i tried an avg scan which showed no virus,when i went to restore there was only one restore point for the 14th of march,after ages of trying to sort things i used the restore late last night and things seem to be normal again,i am wondering what went wrong and where the restore points went,i know my boy tried install a pc game yesterday as that was on the restore,any ideas please ,thanks ps was there a prob with pca site last night as i could not post to it thanks again

create your own restore points to be on the safe side. which OS are you on? XP creates restore points quite frequently, but ME hardly ever.
