Dec 19, 2007

I recently had to restore my pc to the factory settings after a really bad virus ravaged my machine and am currently trying to configure it the way it was before.However I cant remember how I did a couple things.

1.How do I get larger desktop icons as the ones I have now are tiny , I already selected large icons on the startbar options tab but it doesnt seem to make a difference.

2.My mp3 files used to have an mp3 icon (white background with blue musical note) but now they have an ugly windows media player icon , how do I change this?

What Are Best Settings For System Restore?

Nov 5, 2009

What are the best settings for System Restore? I am running Windows XP and the minimum is 200mb and the maximum is 8478mb .. I'm not sure if this is correct, but I read somewhere that the highest setting on SR eats a lot of memory and I dont have that much (512) I am getting virtual low minimum memory messages. (I have this set at min 768 and max 1024) So would turning the setting down on SR work with increasing my virtual memory?

Restore Registry Using System Restore? Blue Screen, PC Won't Boot?

Sep 15, 2006

I was messing around with CCleaner and deleted something to do with an old version of McAfee (which isn't even on my computer anymore) from the registry. Yes, it was stupid to mess with the registry I guess because I failed to make the backup and now my computer won't boot. I get the blue screen that says there was an error 0x0000008e, or something like that.

I have tried using F8 and choosing the last known good configuration but it doesn't work. Also, I can boot into safe mode and I tried running a system restore but after it finished and I rebooted, it said that I couldn't restore from that point.I haven't really tried another restore because I am a little afraid to do anything. I don't want to risk losing access in safe mode because I need to be able to back up some of my files if in case I have to do a reformat.

System Restore Wont Work: Unable To Get Restore Points?

Feb 13, 2005

I am unable to acess any of my or XP's restore points. When I went to restore to an earlier date. All appeared to be going as it should. However, when I got to my profile a message window came up that said unable to restore to (chosen date/time) etc. I chose 3 other restore points over the last month, thinking it might be some recent problem, still a no go. Any help would be greatly appreciated? Is there a utility to use to check and see if there is something corrupted?

System Restore Finding Manual Restore Points

Nov 10, 2007

My comp has been experiencing several problems and is running poorly. I bought an external HD, completely backed up everything important and was about to run a system restore as I had created a manual restore point following the resolution of previous problems. The link to the thread is found below. However, when I use the system restore wizard, I can only select November 8th, 9th, and 10th and today is the 10th. I created the manual restore point back in March 2006. I cannot change the month and I have no idea where to find manual points.

I'm using Windows 2000 SP4.After a major meltdown and reformat I am resolved to implement a backup and restore plan.I have a basic set up I like - it rarely changes - of certain software and documents/files structure.Is there a way to completely backup a Windows 2000 installation - with full program, registry and file support - so that if need be it can be restored with one fell swoop?I have heard of Norton Ghost but some reviews I read on Version 9 have me a bit skeptical of trying it.

System Restore Won't Restore:some Files Corrupted?

Aug 20, 2005

My norton anti-virus said that some files were mssing. It said that if I restored my computer to an earlier date that this should correct the problem. My computer has restore dates so I picked one from the previous day. When my computer re-boted it said that it was not able to restore to an earlier date because some files maybe corrupted. Said to restate the computer and trying restoring again. I did but had same results. Any restore date I pick, it says it is unable to restore.

When Does System Restore/ Refuse To Put Restore Point Down?

Feb 21, 2005

It's clear that System Restore does not simply put down a given Registry of a Restore Point instead of one in existence. Before this System Restore examines for compatibility the coming Registry and established programmed. Sometimes System Restore adjusts them, makes some corrections and informs user about this. But in a complicate situation System Restore cannot make corrections and refuses to put Restore Point down.Where can I read about:

1) What does System Restore control specifically?

2) In which situation specifically does System Restore refuse to put Restore Point down?

3) Is it possible to exclude these testings from System Restore?

System Restore Not Creating Restore Points

Feb 22, 2005

My system restore is no longer creating any restore points, I have to do it manually. About 3 weeks ago I had a virus that I believe I got rid of using HiJackThis. That virus shut off my system restore so that it could not be used and at that time I lost all my restore points. Now my computer seems fine except for the system is not creating any NEW restore points.
