I had this before, and I did something (I just ran a program) and it fixed it. Something with the windows files.

Well what do I do? Anyone have that program or another fix? Yes its enabled, yes it was working like a few days ago and I didn't really do anything to my computer since. It has no viruses or anything, just the windows stuff which always messes up for me.

It says System Restore at the top, with the minimize, close and maximize buttons, but nothing in the window, just a white box.

It also does the same thing with my "User Accounts" in the Control Panel. Enabled but not working. :tazz: Why?

;) I'm pretty sure I didn't do anything wrong.

:) please. I heard something about "sr.inf" in the INF folder in Windows (hidden), can someone tell me if this can help?

Some dlls might be missing.
Follow the steps below to look for missing\corrupt dlls:
Start->Run. Type cmd. Press Enter.
In the Command-Prompt Window, type sfc /SCANONCE. Press Enter.
Follow the instructions by the System File Checker.
(Note:The scan will done on next reboot, so u will be prompted for a reboot. Restart and follow the instructions)

This is ... this is insane. I did everything like you said. When I tried it it said would you like to turn it on, so I did (uncheck the Turn off System Restore button). I tried it again, hoping it would work .. NO GO. WHY?

What the.......

But thanks for your help, if anyone (or you) has any other suggestions please post them here.

Okay - Real Update here:

Problem 1:
I need to know how to enable Javascript, Java, and ActiveX.

Problem 2:
Zone Alarm loads, but the TrueVector Internet Security Service is shut down. I don't know how to turn it on/where to.

Problem 3:
System Restore showing the white screen - possibly linked to Problem 1 about enabling those.

Problem 4:
AVG Is finding lots of viruses, (don't know how, haven't gotten one in ages). Something like winkey.dll in System32, is that safe to delete? There's a lot of trojans in System32.

When I click on heal it says you must restart. Then when I do it says it can't be found or its restricted and it won't do anything. What the... :'(

Newer update:

Problem 1:
I need to know how to enable Javascript, Java, and ActiveX.

Problem 2:
Zone Alarm loads, but the TrueVector Internet Security Service is shut down. I don't know how to turn it on/where to.

Problem 3:
System Restore - probably linked to Problem 1 enabling those.

Problem 4:
"fservice.exe" in Windows/System32 is missing. Maybe because of the AVG scan. How do I get it back?

I'm having the same problem. I've tried the things listed here on this thread and I'm still unable to use S.R. I did find this link it might be worth checking out http://www.tsgserver...une/006660.html
If you figure it out let me know too! thanks

Alchemist11,
Before we jump to enabling JavaScript and ActiveX, lets make sure whether that is the problem.
I'll give u two other Windows applications which use scripting, see if they work propely:
Help and Support Center
User Accounts (In contol panel)

I dont mean to butt in on this thread, but I'm having the same problem, and when I tried to open "user accounts" it gave me a box asking me if I want to continue running script on this page... Hope this helps. (by the way, the help listed on that link i just posted didn't work either)

Follow the steps below:
  • Start -> Run, type
    regsvr32 jscript.dll
    Press <enter>
  • Start -> Run, type
    regsvr32 MSXML3.dll
    Press <enter>
Give the programs a shot and see if they run.

After I typed in both .dll files a box appeared that said they both succeded, but it still doesn't work... Too bad I can't do a system restore to fix the system restore application. I'm about to unholster my forty and place a round in the center of my case... what's a "registry restore"?
