    ahhhh.... do you have a backup?

    have you imaged the disk?

    do you have Norton GOBack?

    I guess the best question to ask you is... Why do you need to do a restore? Is there an underlying problem that you are adressing with system restore, and could this actually be part of the same problem?

    well if you jacked something up, and you know it worked before you jacked it up, then restore is a great tool.
