When I try to do a system restore it looks like it is going through the process and then at the end it states "Restoration Incomplete" No changes have been done to your computer. I had a similar problem when I was running ME and I had help here to fix it, but I don't know how with XP.
Thank you for any help,

I use it if I install a program on my computer and I decide I don't want it, I use it to remove the program and all it's files. I usually use a restore date that is already on the calendar.
thank you for your help,

dtop hello once again .
I may have misunderstood your post, but are you saying that you restore your system if you do not like a particular installed software, rather than uninstalling the program the usual way ?

Before you next " think" that there are files left from d/l this and that , Have a look at what i said .
Ray and Tony Thank you for your replies,
I have removed programs before using the add/remove option, but I always think that some files are left on my computer that I don't need.
On Oct 12th I did a up-date for Adobe and I inadvertently installed their photoshop. Then it automatically installed over 1000 photo's from "My Pictures" to that program. I then did a restore to a earlier date to remove that program because I thought it slowed down my computer. Needless to say I did some house cleaning and put the majority on CD's.
A few days ago I tried to install a widget from Yahoo to my desktop and it didn't install so I tried to use it again and that is when I found out it didn't work.
I did as you said and made my own restore point and I still got the same results.
As you can see I am not a computer expert, but I am learning a lot the last 5 years.
Thank you for your help,
