System Restore has never taken this long, even on my antique desktop running XP. I'm tempted to turn the machine off and reboot but I don't want to run the risk of the machine not rebooting and having to perform a factory restore, not to mention losing months of very tedious work I've done and not having a backup. There seems to be no alternative to having to reboot, though, because the screen hasn't been updated in over 90 minutes and the machine hasn't rebooted, either.
Does anyone have any ideas?
Thanks for any help.
I got impatient and rebooted my machine. Luckily, System Restore never fully initiated (system Restore error window appeared after I booted into safe mode) so I did no harm. I did look through my event logs and noticed some MCP Driver Class critical errors. Is there anyone on this forum versed in event logs?
