System Restore refuses to restore. Get message "Your computer cannot be restored to:-" followed by restore point retails. There is also an invitation to try alternative restore points. These do not work either. Anybody got any ideas and solutions.
A New Bible Built with Modern Technology

New Testament - Breakthrough Version

The Breakthrough Version achieves a much higher level of accuracy. It is:

  • more literal
  • more precise
  • more contemporary
  • more correct
  • more consistent

This Bible even translates hundreds of forgotten Greek words that no other Bible does.

It is an essential tool for Bible teachers and students, yet it is easy to read, even for newbies.

I, too, can never get system restore to restore anything. I use Norton Go Back, part of Norton System Works, and it works like a charm. NGB has saved my beans multiple times.

Norton has a misc setting that forbids changes to Norton. That turns off system restore and doesn't disclose the action. Too much time has past for me to recall specifics. It is merely a check off, in the settings area that does this.

I was given this answer via another forum (Computeractive). It worked for me.
"Try running System Restore after booting to "Safe Mode with Command Prompt". Immediately after powering on, tap the "F8" key ("F5" in some PCs) until the Boot Menu appears. From this select the option to boot "Safe Mode with Command Prompt". Once booted, at the prompt, type:
%SystemRoot%\system32\restore\rstrui.exe and press Enter.
This should open the normal System Restore window from which you can run it."

Hope it works for anyone else trying it.
