Hi , I have a PC about 9 months old and is running OK but I have noticed that it does not retain restore points? I can create them and they last for as long as the PC is on but when I switch off and restart they're gone?
Have checked that restore is functioning and can restore from a restore point but they all go on reboot?

I have zone alarm, avg plus various spyware software installed.
The PC was configured with c drive being split into 4 partitions plus a separate 150 gig data drive and a piece of software named Hypero's to allow individual windows installations on each of the c drives and easy switching between each, not to be recommended.
Any thoughts please
:thumbsup:

Hey worked through the web sites and set restore up again and its working!
Not sure what went wrong?
Could I have deleted the restore points when cleaning my PC? I use several junk removers i.e. spybot, pestpatrol, ad-aware, ultra win cleaner, spywareblaster and spywareguard.
Many thanks for the help
Troutman46 :thumbsup:
