I am trying to set my restore point, but the earliest date that the system offers is the precise date that I installed an update CD.

I want to restore prior to my installing that CD because now I am missing access to a lot of my program files.

My guess is that the update CD wiped out your restore points prior to that installation.

What update CD did you install? Do you have access to a tool (such as Windows PE, BartPE, the Ultimate Boot CD, or a live Linux distro) that will let you access the System Volume Information folder to see if the restore points are still there?
