Hi aliboy66...

How much space do you have allocated for saving system restore files? Right click on "My Computer" and choose "Properties". Click on the "System Restore" tab, select the drive you save the files to (usually C), and click the "Settings" button. To increase the space allocated to system restore files, move the slider to the right and apply the settings.

Let me know where you find the slider set to.

Restore points are made by the computer automatically every 24hrs of real-time use (that is, if you just switch it on and leave it alone for 24hrs, it won't make any restore points) and typically last for 90 days, though its unlikely (but not unheard of) to be able to roll back any further than that.
