Does running the WinXP Diagnostic Startup turn off System Restore? Will

    I got the answer to this question from a Microsoft MVP. The answer is yes,
    Diagnostic Startup deletes System Restore Points.

    If you do NOT clear the selection for "Load System Services", the System restore points would be retained due to the fact, for one, that System Restore service would still be enabled.

    Maurice,

    When I select Diagnostic Startup, I'm not given the option to check Load
    System Services - it's greyed out. Is something wrong with my WinXP? If I
    select the Selective Startup option, I can check Load System Services. I
    assume if I use the Selective Startup option, I need to select Load System
    Services to keep my Restore Points?

    Yes, that is my opinion.
