I cannot get this computer to use system restore points. Everything is
activated in the control panel. I used to have many restore points but now I
get one every day with the rest being deleted. I cannot go back to a point
beyond the current day. Not sure what to do any help would be appreciated.
Thanks

Hi,


Here are some troubleshooting tips for System Restore in Windows XP.

Go to Start - Run and type eventvwr.msc and press enter.
Click on System in the left pane.

Click the gray title "Source" at the top of the source name column in
the right pane to sort by source name, look for "sr" and "srservice".
Double click on each of these events, then click on the button below
the two arrows in the upper right corner. This will copy the event
information to the clipboard. Paste the information for each event
here. This will help us in diagnosing the problem.
