system restore

my pc wont do a system restore, I have tried 6 different dates but al it says it that it cant be restored to this day and no change has been made to my PC, can anyone suggest anything as my proggrames are really slow, takes at least a minute to load from first click, I have got ccleaner which makes them a little quicker but by no means fast, the pc at work boots up really fast to mine.I have been thinking of formatting my PC,thanks

have you done a de-frag lately?

Start; Run and type msconfig and click OK.

Have a look under the Startup tab to see what runs at startup. You'll probably find there are several services/programs which you don't need.

If so, remove the tick from beside them and click Apply.

You could also try a registry cleanup with click here

You can safely delete everything it finds.

And I assume you have up-to-date AV software and have recently scanned with it?
