Not enough disk space is allocated to 'Backup and Restore'. Therefore, XP does not have enough (or none) restore points. To fix this, log in with Admin rights (Admin account): Control Panel ---> System ---> System Restore ---> Settings ---> Disk Space Usage - set this to the max. (12% or something like that). Restart the computer. From this point forward, Win XP will create 'Restore' points as necessary. chas4u August 31, 2011 3:35:45 PM Also, you want to disable your virus software to allow for changes and enable the software after you restore.
