I'm running windows XP home edition and I did a system restore last week and
now I'm trying to do it again for the present day, but when I to system tools
and click on system restore, comes up but it's empty, nothing there. Am I
missing a file, is the system corrupt. Please let me know, if you have a cure
for this and also I can't go to windows update page. .

Hi Jimmy,

You will need to click on the link to download the zip file. Move the
script file from the zip file to the disk top and double click to run
it.
