How did you get to system restore?

What brand and model of computer do you have and do you have either a Windows XP full installation disk or a restore disk from the manufacturer of your computer?

Do you have your data backed up?

If you do, the easiest fix may be to use the Restore disk you have.

If you decide to use it, disconnect everything you have connected to the computer except the mouse, keyboard and monitor. (disconnect the printer, speakers, scanner, etc)

Then boot with the Restore CD in the CD Drive.

Follow on screen instructions.

That should restore your computer to the same software state that it came in when new.

You will have to reinstall any additional programs you added, any additional peripherals, redo all Windows and program updates, etc,

If your computer did not come with SP2 when new make sure your firewall is on before connecting to the internet.

Reinstall your anti-virus ap and update it - then replace the XP firewall with one that gives both incoming and outgoing protection like Zonealarm or Sygate, install your anti-malware aps, and then restore your data from wherever you backed it up to.

How old is this computer, what are its specs?

It may be something as simple as a power supply or hard drive.
