just right click on the my computer icon on your desktop click properties and then click the system restore tab and then make sure that the TURN OFF SYSTEM RESTORE box is NOT checked. Then click APPLY. :tazz:

What happens when you do this? you are running XP right?

1. Log on to Windows as Administrator.
2. Click Start, point to All Programs, point to Accessories, point to System Tools, and then click System Restore. System Restore starts.

when you turn on your computer does it automaticlly startup into windows? If so you should be the administrator probably. This is your home PC right? If this is the case then try what I stated previously and tell me what the outcome is.

Ok have you disabled system restore recently? Why dont you try to create a new system restore point right now and then go back into the system restore and see if the restore point shows up. Let me know.

This may be of some help. Im still doing some research. Is there something wrong with your computer right now or are you just wanting system restore to work?

seems like I have virus or something I have been using everything I know for the past 2 days but can't find anything. The computer is behaving very badly slow grahics and it seems at times the only way to get it to work properly is a reboot which only works until the next slo down
