System restore has disappeared from system tools, however, using Advanced Windows Care I am able to create restore points. This is what I have attempted so far to find SR:
I have tried to locate the sr.inf file to install. The system restore file is there but not sr.inf. I am unabe to use my XP installation disc because my CD Rom drive is not working. I have also tried the command to restore the file: %systemroot%\system32\restore\rstrui.exe, both from the command prompt and also the Run box. I am told the path can not be found. I have run a complete virus and ad-ware scan and they show no problems. I am unable to buy a new CD Rom drive right now, so if anyone can think of a way to fix this problem other than using my CD Disc, I would appreciate it. I have also downloaded the sr.inf file, but when I try to install it I am prompted for my xp home disc.
