Everytime when I want to restore to a previous date the system says after
choosing such a restore point that the system could not restore me - I tried
several restore points with no luck.

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 of the
two event here. This will help us in diagnosing the problem.

Hi,

Create a new restore point and immediately do a restore to it. Did
that work?
