How do I get System Restore to work again? RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • Hello,

    In Windows XP, Version 5.1 with Service Pack 3 . . .

    When I go to Programs > Accessories > System Tools and click on System Restore, nothing happens. Isn't this where I should be able to create a Restore Point and/or access earlier Restore Points, and if so, how can I get it to work?

    Further detail:
    - In Control Panel > System, under the System Restore tab, there is a box that is NOT checked/ticked and that says "Turn off System Restore on all drives."

    - In Start > Run I typed CMD to opoen the box, then typed Net Start at the command prompt. "System Restore Service" was included in the list of Windows services that are started.

    - I use Windows OneCare.

    Thanks.
