I installed a program today (iPod mini installer), but decided I didnít want it.

I also wanted to undo several minor changes.

I tried system restore to last Sunday, but I received a message saying it was unable to restore.

I created a new restore point called TEST and was able to successfully restore to that point.

Why can't I/how do I go back to my previous restore points?

Iím running XP SP2.

First of all System restore will not remove any Programs at all. System restore deals more with the regestry and configuration.

You system restore is working. Due to you were able to create a restore point and revert back to it.

What are the Minor changes that you want to change.

I just wanted to revert to how my system was last week (I'm a bit picky like that). Now that I've noticed this issue with system restore, I really would like to resolve it.

Will I be able to restore to that point at all? Should I flush out my old restore points?

Thanks for the help.

Unfortenly there are time when System restore is not able to restore to a point do to verrious reasons. The system restore feature itself is working you are able to create and revert back to a restore to a point.
