I am getting a message "Your computer cannot be restored to .... ". I
tried all restore points available but to no avail. The OS is WXP Pro
SP2. Could anyone post what could be the cause of this problem?

My opinion would be to disable RESTORE and start using Symantec's
GOBACK.

You don't have to do anything and it saved me countless heartaches that
I would have had with MS Restore.

GoBack is a Godsend!!

Hi Bert,

Thanks for your response. I could resolved the problem by following the
suggested steps in the web page from the link you posted. The point
was running System Restore service in Safe Mode.
Thank you again for your help.
