System Restore

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

When I try to restore my system to a previous setting it appears to be doing
this but when my system reboots I get the message System Restore cannot
restore your system to the date required - why?

    Generally when System Restore goes bad, there is nothing you can do
    except to disable it, reboot, and then enable it again. This removes
    all the old System Restore points, so if you are trying to fix a
    problem by using System Restore this might not be the best answer for
    you. Here is a site with tons of information about System Restore:

    If you need more help, perhaps we should be addressing the problem that
    is causing you to want to do a System Restore. In that case, post back
    with all details.
