I went back to a previous state using system restore a couple days ago. I haven't installed any software or added any hardware to my computer before this stuff started happening. I uninstalled some programs, defragmented the hdd and did disk cleanup. Now strange things are happening and I don't know how to fix them. For some reason system restore won't come in. The window opens but it's all white. No words no nothing. In Outlook Express the window where the email contents is suppose to be seen shows nothing. It's just a gray box. Everything else comes in. The list of messages and the files n folders are both shown. The menu and everything else comes in fine. Also help and support won't open. I click on it and the cursor shows the hour glass but it never opens. Is there another way to restore to a previous stable state without using system restore? Can anyone please help me fix these problems?
