System Restore

  1. I heard that each restore point relies on the previous one in order to restore your computer, meaning that if one of the restore points has been messed up, the points behind that one will not work. Is that true? If so, that means I should turn it off to get rid of the old ones and turn it back on? I have tried system restore and its seems that none of the restore points work. (Good thing my computer doesn't have a problem yet!)

    Yes, you`re quite correct.

    If your system is running fine, then now would be a good time to delete all restore points and create a new one.

    Turn off system restore.(XP/ME only) See how HERE.

    Now, turn system restore back on. This will have deleted all your old restore points and any nasties that are in them. It will also have created a new, clean restore point.

    Regards Howard :)
