Going Back To Earlier Date Of System Restore Points?

How far back does system restore? How do you control how far back to keep restor points? I have been trying to fix a problem since February and want to go back to before then and my restore only goes back to April..I have not knowingly deleted any restore functions.

System Restore Wont Work: Wont Restore To Earlier Points?
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
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.

System Restore Back - Points - Wizard
Let's preface this by saying I have not set any restore points.Now I'd like to set System Restore back to May 1st. I start System Restore Wizard (because I've never done this before and it seemed like an easy way to go about it), but the earliest restore point is June 23rd (or threabouts).My question: Is there any way to go back before that?

Computer Lagging Bad On Startup / Cannot Restore Back To That Date
My computer was working like clockwork until I installed and then uninstalled a program( google earth). Now my computer takes at least 10 minutes, maybe longer to boot up to the point where I can actually use it. I have winxp home. I have tried disk cleanup, running norton, running spybot and adaware programs. I even tried to do a system restore but it keeps telling me no matter which date I choose that it cannot restore back to that date.

System Restore Wont Work: Unable To Get Restore Points?
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
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 Not Creating Restore Points
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.

System Restore Queries - 30 Or 40 Restore Points
I just reformatted by Toshiba laptop computer to take it back to original state. I have installed minimum programs at this point. Before I do any adding I go in and set a system restore point.When I went in to do this the first time I found that there was a whole list of system restore points for a program install. It is not a program I installed on my computer this time around, although it was installed previous to my reformatting.System restore shows this program installed every 10-15 minutes ad there's a list of at least 30 or 40 restore points each day.

I assume thats normal?

Restore Points On Operating System
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.

Can Deleted System Restore Points Be Recovered
When I used the xp home edition System Configuration Utility { SRU} it deleted all my system restore points. Not only did the SRU not solve the problem, but I could then not use the system restore facility which may have solved the problem . I have downloaded nothing but an Ad-Aware update since I lost all my system restore points.Can these deleted system restore points be recovered?

System Won't Create Restore Points
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.
