can any 1 help me? I cannot do a system restore on my computer. It will start doing a restore thyen half way through the computer restarts itself and the message reads "restore unsuccessfull, no changes have been made to your pc"
You can't do a "system restore" in ME. You can do a "registry restore" though. What you need to do is restart your computer and keep hitting the F8 key until you get a menu. Choose Safe Mode Command Prompt Only and press enter. When you get to the C:\ prompt type in scanreg /restore and press enter. You will then get a window with the last five registry backups. Choose a date that is nearest to the date before the problem occurred, press enter and the registry will be restored. Don't forget the space between scanreg and /restore.
I'm slightly confused. I just downloaded that patch thing direct from Microsoft (thankyou for the advice by the way!) and all works fine now. There is a system restore feature in Win ME. I've used it many times, before September 8th that is!
There is a system restore point within WME. But it can be a little weird at times. I had a problem with WME, and tried to go back to a previous restore point. The system did not work, and I found out that the Restore can 'dump' itself, if there is insufficient harddrive space available.Information via Microsoft.
