Yesterday I installed a musical Elvis Presley screen saver. Started having problems with computer being very slow. I uninstalled it from Add/Remove (also a toolbar it had installed), went to Explore, Windows and deleted it there. Went to reg/edit (with which I am getting familiar) and did not see it. I rebooted, and still computer was pokey. I went to System Restore and tried to restore to November 5, where I had created a restore point and had named it GOOD RESTORE. JOY! JOY! 11-5-05. Computer would not restore it. Then chose November 18, a Registry Mechanic restore point, and computer restored okay.
I do not understand why the November 5 could not be restored. Would it have anything to do with what I named it? Should I disable System Restore, reboot, and enable it again. Appaarently I have some bad restore points in there.
