    Scan for spy-ware and viruses.

    On your desktop, RIGHT click on "My Computer" then on "Properties" and finally click on "System Restore". Make SURE it's turned ON, and you have at least 2% of the drive space allocated for it to use, on EACH hard drive you have installed.
    I set mine to 10% because I have a LOT of things I need protected.
    Let us know...

    I use Roxio Go Back instead. I can't praise that program enough. it does the same as system restore but is infinitly better, and you can get it off Kazaalite.

    Sounds worth looking into. Sometimes "System Restore" fails.

    I don't use system restore. if I really need to, I recover. Turning System Restore off is a performace boost anyway. Besides, I can back averything up to my slave. No loss.
