Greetings BP Helpers & Forumites.

This is a problem I've had for a very long time now. I haven't been able to perform a 'System Restore' to ANY previous date listed for about 2 years now. Everything else seems to work fine with my PC. I don't actually need to use the 'System Restore' facility at the moment, but it would still be nice to know it's working for when I actually need to utilise it at some future date!

The outcome of a 'System Restore' attempt is the following message given: 'Restoration Incomplete - your computer cannot be restored to ....... (date given). No changes have been made to your computer.'

I have Windows XP Home Edition (version 2002) on CD ROM and have SP3 installed.

Any assistance in sorting this problem out would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Have you read Troubleshooting, System Restore fails to create an automatic restore point - http://bertk.mvps.org/html/srauto.html ?

No, it's not that that's the problem. Restore points ARE created, but the PC won't act on any of them when I ask it to. It just comes up with the statements as given in my original posting.
