System Restore Fails

  Martlet 17:44 14 Dec 2003

Whislt attempting a System Restore (my third in as many days!) I left my machine to get my dinner. On return I found that I had an Error Message, (can't remember what it was), but now if I try Restore, I get an Error Message - 'The procedure entry point RemoteAssistancePrepareSystemRestore could not be located in the dynamic link library WINSTA.dll'.
As the machine I am having trouble with is not connected to the net, I will be unable to download anything that cannot be copied to a floppy.
Any suggestions?

Assuming you have XP.

OK. got my System Restore running, but I have no previous Restore Points available. Where have they gone?

They would have been deleted.

"Whislt attempting a System Restore (my third in as many days!)"

One would ask why?

If you have to do this 3 times then it would indicate something that SR could no resolve.

Yes, I thought that, so I had also tried 'XP Repair' but that did not repair Restore.!
