I can't establish restore points, as I have no system restore on my XP Pro.

phbrown,

Make sure system restore is turned on. Start>Control Panel>System in the system window click the System Restore tab make sure the turn off system restore check box is clear, if not clear it.

I found this by digging on the net

Use Windows explorer to navigate to the \windows\inf folder
Look for the sr file (not sr.pnf). The icon looks like a sheet of paper with one gear on it
Right click on it & select install
You will need an Windows XP cd as it will want to copy over some files
Restart for good measure

See if that works
In the beginning there was the command line.
