When using the sytem restore it seems every date I pick doesnt allow me to reset. It goes thru the motions and reboots but i then get a message telling me that windows wasn't able to restore to the date I picked. Am I doing something wrong? So far I've picked at least 4-5 dates with no luck. One of the dates was only 2 days old.

Any help you can give me would be greatly appreciated!

Try using safe mode with command prompt to do a System Restore.

Type the following into the command prompt and press "Enter"

it may be that the system restore files are damaged and possibly stopping the service restarting the computer and restarting the service may work. This would be only good for the future because it would wipe all of your current restore points. Do not use this option if you need the ones that you are using now. to get to services just got to start----run---and type services.msc in the open box.
