Split from http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/484816/system-restore-creates-points-but-cant-restore-to-them/#entry3115320 - Hamluis.




I have Windows XP and AVG and have been unable to restore three restore points.  Any suggestions?

After entering my post, I re-read the previous history on this topic and decided to disable AVG.  It worked.  I've had a lot of trouble with AVG being too aggressive, will probably replace it.  Earlier in the day, I had tested several free video editors and one or more screwed up my installed dot-net framework, plus opened up IE for an "ad yieldmanager" rootkit.  The restore set everything back to my usual healthy computer.
