Following a System Restore on my Dell Inspiron it has come up with windowsroot system 32 ntoskrnl. The computer was not supplied with the full Window's XP home edition CD, just a Dell reinstallation CD which does nothing at all. I have used the same date on System Restore before without any problems at all. How do I get round this?

If you get that message every time you run system restore, that restore point is no longer any good. You need to try a different restore point on a different date. System restore is NOT meant to be a backup. You need to be running a backup of your computer if you don't want to lose your data. Hopefully you will have another restore point, possibly earlier than the one you used, which is good. If you need to reinstall windows, you will need to get a disk. You can send me a message if you need one.

Dear Sir,

plz use this step for restore

To use System Restore to restore Windows XP to a previous state, follow these steps:
  1. Log on to Windows as Administrator.
  2. Click Start, point to All Programs, point to Accessories, point to System Tools, and then click System Restore. System Restore starts.
  3. On the Welcome to System Restore page, click Restore my computer to an earlier time (if it is not already selected), and then click Next.
  4. On the Select a Restore Point page, click the most recent system restore point in the On this list, click a restore point list, and then click Next.

    Note A System Restore message may appear that lists configuration changes that System Restore will make. Click OK.
  5. On the Confirm Restore Point Selection page, click Next. System Restore restores the previous Windows XP configuration, and then restarts the computer.
  6. Log on to the computer as Administrator. The System Restore Restoration Complete page is displayed.
  7. Click OK.
If you successfully restored your computer to a previous state, and the computer is performing as it should be, you are finished.

If the restore process completed successfully but the computer is still not performing as you want, go to the "How to undo a system restoration after you perform a System Restore" section. If you received an error message and the restore process did not finish, or if you cannot run System Restore, go to the "Next Steps" section

HOW DO I DO A system restore from within windows

Click on Start/Accessories/SystemTools/SystemRestore Once there, you'll be prompted to Create a Restore Point or Restore to an earlier point in time. Select Restore to an earlier point in time and you will see a calendar. Click on the date you would like to restore to and click Continue. It's important to leave the machine alone while it performs the restore action. Once done, it will automatically reboot. After rebooting, you will get 1 of 2 messages:
  1. Your system have successfully been restored or
  2. System restore was unable to restore your computer, no changes were made to your system
Hope this answers your question. All the best!
