When I try to run system restore I get the following message:>> "System restore is not able to protect your computer. Your name or email address: Do you already have an account?

We removed the drive and installed it in an identical hardware configuration, then booted SpinRite 6 from CD and did a Level 2 recovery (see above for recovery level definitions). Cant get ride of it. and even tried fixing some registry entries identified as "Nasty" in the hijack log. Corrupted system files entries can threaten the well-being of your computer.

With all your problems I think I would back up all my documents "If not done already" and then do a full re-install.

He was inclined to think that it might be something to do with the way I installed Office and SP3.

Then, I followed the recommendations in brakers message of Aug 19.

This link has some wonderful help options but I need help only with the system restore. I had to switch it off and on. Be forewarned that doing this removes all existing restore points, but it doesn't really matter as they weren't working anyways. and what/where is the registry editor?

Any help or advice you might have would be appreciated. Discussion in 'Windows XP Performance' started by SerenitySchmidt, Sep 30, 2008. My problem is considerably bad. I can always get to the "Confirm Restore Point Selection" screen, which is about the third screen you get after opening System Restore, but clicking the "Next" button on that screen

I'd only this morning done an AV in safe mode, so tried to do system restore. have a peek at these guys same problem as whats described above. Thanks again. It's just that I have been away from home since I sent my last message and I was unable to access my computer until now.

Of note, when that value was 0, and SR was flagged as Turned Off, I blanked out the checkmark and tried again. I then right clicked on My Computer, chose Properties, then went to the System Restore tab and it was all there. Also from some not-so-nice experiences of my own. http://mmonoplayer.com/system-restore/system-restore-is-not-able-to-protect-your-computer-a.html I have windows xp media and my anti-virrus is pc cillan.

Cannot make System Restore function, keep get message restart your computer. I did have viruses about 3 months ago and cleaned cpu up and changed virus support to Avira Antivirus, how ever it's deifinitely not treating my cpu like the old AVG I'm just about ready to take it into the shop.

Here they are.

The folder and the scanners tell me they are there but I just can't see them nor open them. That is unless you are lucky enough to know someone with a copy of SpinRite. At the end of setup the installation hangs, because the Program (mbam.exe) starts and gets blocked by the trojan. XP Pro SP2 98SE BillyBob, #6 (You must log in or sign up to reply here.)

Reverse the steps to restart it.Be forewarned that doing this removes all existing restore points, but itdoesn't really matter as they weren't working anyways.If this does not help, follow these steps Back to top #7 IH.MY.PC IH.MY.PC Topic Starter Members 19 posts OFFLINE Gender:Male Local time:11:14 PM Posted 11 February 2013 - 03:06 PM That worked, all seems to be good No sense tempting fate. this content Helpful +0 Report Hihhih Mar 30, 2009 09:28PM ahhh.

Any additional hexadecimal code contains the address of the memory locations where instruction(s) were loaded during the time of the error. It changed a LOT of settings, i.e. I finely installed sysrestoreable.reg on windows XP Home. Unfortunately this is where things get a little sketchy, because I wasn't taking notes, but it went roughly like this.

YIKES!!! Please restart your computer, then run System Restore again...When I did this I was once again presented with the last message but there was no other change or improvement. Will installing sr.inf erase my previous restore points? Insert it and then follow these steps.

any suggestions? Last edited by LouBee; January 22nd, 2011 at 16:05 PM. Any suggestions, tools, help or otherwise?? Edited by IH.MY.PC, 11 February 2013 - 11:44 AM.
