Accessing SR on Vista

I don't have a Vista platform with me, its with the kid in college.

What is the recipe to access System Restore in Vista I can post to a user?

I just enter the file name in the Run Command, but I'd rather just issue a run down list.

BTW, did you see the pricing on the i7 Intel Quad Core CPU? Reminds me of the old days when Intel was all about speed. They couldn't have chose a better time to release this to the market.

    Thanks, for the location on Vista. Its just I haven't always seen it there on a Vista system and resort to just entering the file name in the run box.

    Thanks, again.

    I'll be following the i7 reports and watching the prices plummet after Christmas. As if that should make a difference this year.

I moved back to XP a while a go, if you type "restore" into the start menu search box it will come up with system restore within the results. 
I think its also hidden somewhere in the start menu - programs ...

Just did a fast google search on that, here's what I got

  1. Close and save any documents that you may have open. 

  2. Click on the Start button to open your Start Menu. 

  3. When the Start Menu opens click on the All Programs menu option.

  4. Click once on the Accessories Start Menu group.

  5. Click once on the System Tools Start Menu group.

  6. Click once on the System Restore icon. After you click on the icon, if a User Account Control window opens you should click on the Continue button.

I'm not really following the hardware scene much, first time I heard of the new i7, the i7 920 is the only one of the series I might consider buying at its current price, looking at some reviews it seems to out perform all that amd has to offer, I might go intel when I upgrade next time.
Thanks for the update.

Tough infection keeps returning


If the malware is reinfecting your system, you really only have 3 choices: System Restore, Factory Restore or reinstall.

For System Restore, boot your system to Safe Mode (press F8 repeatedly). Go to System Restore and choose a date when your system worked OK. Note: with System Restore, everything, including your documents and other files you saved on the hard drive, will roll back to that date.

Accessing Factory Restore (restores to the factory settings and will wipe out anything that you have installed or saved on your PC), is dependent on your hardware manufacturer. Boot your system and press F10, F11, Alt+F10, or Ctrl+F11 to access Factory Restore. Follow the prompts.

If still not resolved, you'll probably need to reinstall your operating system.

Hope this helps.

Need a restore disk for acer laptopex4420


Thank you for using
FixYa for your problem

Windows 7 and Vista has a feature called System Restore that automatically backs up registry and system files whenever you install new software or drivers. This feature is useful when you install evil software that makes your computer run really slow. But don’t worry, System Restore won’t remove Windows Vista.

Using System Restore in Windows

There are two places that you can use the system restore feature from. From within Windows, you can just type restore into the Start menu search box, and you’ll immediately see System Restore at the top of the start menu:
now just follow it all
