If I reload Win XP through system restore will my files still be there? I have a lot of pics on my desktop I want to keep, and CD burner doesn't work and When I try to mail them to myself it says not enough memory. I need to know if they will still be there or do I have to take it to someone to hook up to another computer to burn?

System restore won't remove the images, but it won't do anything about the memory either

Click start, right click my computer, click properties, advanced, settings for performance, advanced, put the dot in system managed, click set, click OK, reboot

I see system cache but not system managed, also I think I ask the wrong question I meant system recovery not system restore. The burner won't work, I still can't open Javascript and I really want all these Pics of my little girl, everything else doesn't matter lol

System recovery would remove the images

Click start, right click my computer, click properties, click hardware, click device manager, click the + next to DVD / CD drives, right click the burner, click uninstall, confirm and reboot

Windows will re-install it when it loads
