usually if you go back to system restore you can go back to where you wee originally. I am not sure what happens if it restarts before the restore process has finished.
other than that you can't go forward in time.

THE COMPUTER HAS RESTORED TO THE OLD DATE BUT I CANT USE INTERNET EXPLORER WHERE A PASSWORD IS REQUIRED.


Thats because someone enabled content advisor and set a Supervisor password. Now to bypass this password protected prompt simply, follow these steps it's a VERY SIMPLE registry hack which works I just tested it out on my XP Pro & IE 6.0 before I posted this;


Open regedit.exe (usually performed via the Run command).
Navigate to this key:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion
\Policies\Ratings
Right-click the key and delete it.
Open Internet Explorer and navigate to Tools | Internet Options | Content.
Disable Content Advisor. (Enter a new, more easily remembered password if you want.)
This simple Windows Registry hack will disable the Internet Explorer Content advisor and return Internet Explorer to its default state.

You will now be able to surf the net with IE. I got the 'registry hack' from some site so credit goes their.
