Hi there, many thanks for your reply.
No, system restore has never been turned off.
The reason I have to retore, is that I lost my home networking. It takes forever for the network or network and sharing center page to load and then freezes. I get a white blank page for roughly 3-4 min, then the page finally loads up. I read the other help pages on here looking for help and came across another user who seemed to have exactly the same problem as me.
Title: (AIM Download Breaks Internet Connection)
After reading this, I found that the problem was likely due to me downloading aim. I then uninstalled aim and wanted to restore to earlier date as this originally fixed the problem for the previous user. But as I wasn't aware of the problem until after about a week, I couldn't go back far enough.
Since uninstalling Aim, the network page still takes forever to load, but now I can find the other comps on my network and access them, but they can not access my comp like before, or use the sharing facility such as the printer etc. but can see me.
The network and sharing center page, again takes forever to load and still freezes when it does load. I am being told at the top of the page, "conection status unknown and server execution failed".
My Network Discovery is set to custom and not public as I had previously set it to. (Don't know why this has changed). So now cos it freezes, I can't set it to public as I would like it to be.
I use a Netgear DG834GT router, Windows Vista home premium 32 bit and use AOL software to access internet.
I hope I have included enough information about this problem. Obviously if I haven't then please let me know.
Many thanks in advance for any and all help given.
