system restore, no changes

  [email protected] 23:04 23 Nov 2006

hello i posted this a while back and still havnt got it sorted out even with a full recovery, the problem is everytime i try to go back to a restore point it goes through the motions and on restart says 'unable to restore as no changes have been made to computer, i've tried turning restore off then back on again, but still the same, on restore everything looks ok all drives monitoring, i used norton ghost for a while but got fed up with the clutter and messages, any ideas please?

Have you got sufficient disk space on all the drives where System Restore is enabled? Have you tried a restore in safe mode?
