Hi,

I am attempting to execute the system restore wizard (Windows XP). I have no problem selecting the restore point, and then clicking next to confirm i want to continue with the system restore. The problem i have is when I go to click 'Next' again to actually carry out the sytem restore... I click 'Next' and nothing happens! I've tried choosing different restore points and running the wizard in safe mode, but still nothing at all happens when I click 'Next'.
Any advice or tips?

Thanks so much.

Can you reboot to Safemode and when the screen shows up, choose boot to last known good configuration?
At the bottom of the page in this link is a way to do it manually (that would be a last-ditch effort)

This can also be a sign of malware
