System Restore Wont Work: Wont Restore To Earlier Points?

Sep 18, 2005

Was having a problem with the computer, doing weird things so I thought that I might go back and do a restore from an earlier point to see if it solved the problem. Anyway, went to earlier point, restored sort of, after it did everything, it told me it could not restore to that point and that nothing was done. I went to another restore point further back, same message, was not installed at the restore point, current settings are intact. Did this 2 more times, same results. I have made restore points along with the ones the systme makes. None of them works.

Cannot Delete Folder - Restore At Any Earlier Date Feature

Nov 9, 2007

I downloaded a rar file (15 mb) and once I unpacked it on my desktop (it would show 0 mb when I tried the properties tab) it would not allow the contents of the folder to be seen nor to be delete it. The message I got was unable to delete the file and it is used by another program. I tried the following to delete the file to no avail however: 1. DOS commands 2. The Unlocker software 3. Tried to see what new files were created on that day (could not find anything suspicious) so I can delete them 4. Looked at the startup programs (could not find it there) 5. The restore at any earlier date feature of windows XP 7. Looked in the registry (could not find anything) 8. Tried to see what processes were running so I can terminated it but could not locate anything 9. Tried the Ultimate Troubleshooter software to locate any suspicious running processes 10. PC tools Spyware doctor with Antivirus and Threadfire, Eset antivirus (it could not scan the folder because it appears to be locked), Avir antivirus, Panta microscan and XoftspySE and I got no malware detection what-so-ever.

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.

System Restore Points Not Retained From Day To Day?

Jun 11, 2006

My XP Home System Restore function works when I manually create a restore point, however, the following day (on the calendar) that point is no longer available. I can create several restore points and all are gone the next day. It used to work fine and there would be weeks of restore points. Occasionally I would turn the function off and remove all past points and then turn it back on and it would create a system check point and the next day yet another check point, etc. Now it does not retain even a single point for more than a day.

System Won't Create Restore Points

Jun 2, 2008

For what ever reason my computer won't create restore points anymore. I've tried a couple of things suggested like disabling restore points then enabling it, letting it just sit idle and I've checked that I have enough room ( there's lots of room ). The last time I used restore was about 9 to 12 months ago and it was working fine then. So I'm just looking for some ideas as to what else I might try. My o/s is XP Home.

Restore Points On Operating System

Mar 16, 2006

What can cause the restore points on the XP OS to become corrupted. For the second time in 6 months I have had to do a complete restore of my system as none of the restore points would work. I have not set up any of the points myself as the system seems to do it every day anyhow. It just seems that all of a sudden none of the restore points will work and it comes back and says my system has not been restored to such and such a date. I like this feature as it gets me out of some jams but is it possible to use it too much.

System Restore Has Stopped Automatically Creating Check Points?

Aug 3, 2005

For some reason System Restore has stopped automatically creating System Checkpoints. It is turned on, and is set to use the Maximum amount of space for monitoring my C drive. Yes, there is a great deal of unused disk space. I had used Disk Cleanup/ More Options/System Restore Cleanup prior to the problem, only that one option, not any of the other Disk Cleanup options. So, I have no earlier Restore Points to restore to, only the ones which I have Manually created since.

I tried to do a 'system restore' but the system restore does not work. It will not allow me to click on a previous date; when I tried "help" in 'SR', that did not work either.I've rebooted several times to no avail. Earlier in the day I had downloaded a new program called 'seekmore'...thinking that may be the problem, I uninstalled it, but the audio is still gone. I ran a Norton Scan... still no success.
