Select Start, Run, then type scanreg and press Enter. If you're told that there are no errors, click Yes to back up the Registry, then OK. To restore the Registry, select Start, Shut Down, click Restart in MS-DOS mode, and click OK. At the C:\WINDOWS> prompt, type scanreg /restore (don't forget to put a space before the slash) and press Enter. Select a backup from the list and press Enter again.

I did that earlier but the restore point only goes back to early this morning (2/24/04) is there a way to back it up even further to resolve this problem?

Are you experiencing any other problems? If its just My Computer shortcut that can be fixed using regedit.

Have you scanned your system to see if you have a virus or trojan? Click Free Antivirus Tools in my signature.
