System Restore Will not Restore Computer

Archived from groups: microsoft.public.windowsxp.perform_maintain (More info?)

When I do a system restore it goes through the whole process and when I
restart it , it tells me the system could not be restored.... I try a
different date and get the same thing. Any help is appreciated.

    Hi

    One or more of the System Restore files could have been corrupted - try
    turning SR off/on - but I'm afraid that you will lose any existing
    checkpoints:

    Right click My Computer, select Properties and then the System Restore tab.
    Enable 'Turn off System Restore on all drives' and reboot your PC. After
    that 1st reboot go back into SR and disable 'Turn off System Restore on all
    drives' and reboot your PC again. After that 2nd reboot you should have one
    new SR checkpoint.

    I don't know if this applys to other computers but I have a Compaq Presario
    which is also made by HP and before installing SP2 I had to download software
    from HP to correct this problem. It may be something common to windows XP SP2
    service pack so if this only started after you installed SP2 I would look to
    a remedy of this nature.

    Hi Will,
    If you log onto Hp.com, find their support page and look for the link to
    Windows XP SP2 update then locate the information regarding system restore.

    The download is called SP 26352 and also has the ref. Microsoft QFE(KB
    835409) which is why I suspect Microsoft know about this.

    I'm not a computer expert but I hope this may be useful to you.
