Hi, I operate Windows XP Pro. about 2 weeks ago I tried to initiate a System restore only to notice that the system had not been Setting any "points". So I set one manually. On a subsequent try 2 days later the computer went through all its usual operations,however the final result was a note indicating "your computer cannot be restored"Can anyone lead me in the right direction to correct this condition ?. Or will I have to resort to a reformat with the winXP CD. [ I have all my folders and files saved.
Thanks for any forthcoming information.Ken.

Could be file corruption...I'd try running the sfc /scannow command or reinstalling SR.
