hey, i have been having prblems with my internet recently, connection but no data transfer. its a resuilt of downloading robusst free internet speedbooster (dumb idea). anyway, i was thinking that iff i just use a system restore to turn back the clock a few weekst when to when the problem started, that it would set things right again. I have never used system restore before so i was wondering... how exactly do you use it? i found the options for it but from there im lost... If anyone has any help regarding my orriginal problem or the system restore question, it would really be appriciated.


Thanks Alot

When you get the dates for system restore, look for a system check point

Start /Programs / Accessories / Sytem Tools / System Restore

When the screen pops up choose retore my computer to an earlier date.A little Calendar will pop up on the left.Any dates that are highlighted a darker blue will be one where a system restore point was made.Click on the date you wish to use and hit Next until it does its thing and reboots your computer.It might seem a little longer on the boot but thats Ok it is changing all the settings back to what they were at the time you chose .Let the screen load that tells you it was succesfull and you good to go.

If it says it was unsuccessfull then try a different date.
