System Restore in Safe Mode

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

In the process of removing viruses I activated the "Turn off System Restore"
indicator as well as started my laptop in safe mode. I am unable to
deactivate the "Turn off System Restore" indicator in safe mode and cannot
get out of safe mode whilst the "Turn off System Restore" indicator is
deactivated. I do not have a Windows XP CD as the operating system was
installed when purchasing the laptop. HELP!

    That is fine except that I have already deviated from this procedure. Too
    late now!

    What is the "Turn off System Restore indicator"?

    "How to start your computer by using the Last Known Good Configuration
    feature in Windows XP"

    Ted! If you right click on the "My Computer" shortcut on your desktop and
    then select "Properties" the system properties screen appears. Click on the
    System Resore tab and then you will see the option to activate/deactivate the
    system resoration function. It allows your system to be make changes to your
    system without compromising functionality.
