Windows Restore only displays one restore date; history is gone.

I had problems downloading/installing Panda Global Security 2009. Bogged my system down entirely. Had to uninstall/reinstall three times. Even then, although it appears to work now, my Windows Restore function will only display one restore date. Is there a way to get back Windows Restore? Or does Panda take over the restore function? If it does, how can I get a restore to work? Panda help is almost non-existent.

Restores are only recorded when a system change is made or you manually set one. Since panda is a program and not a system change it will not set a restore date. Uninstall panda. Go to c:\program files and delete Panda Software folder. In Vista go to C:\Users\<user>\AppData\ (where user is your user account) and delete all folders related to panda. In XP that same folder will be C:\Documents and Settings\<user>\Application Data

The error states file access denied.
It seems your login is not able to access that specified file
due to permission constraint.
  • Firstly disable UAC.
  • If you have mcaffee installed or norton, disable access protection.
  • If you created a system restore point with the True Crypt image mounted, you won't be able to restore back to that point. It needs to be unmounted before creating the restore point.
  • If you use Panda Internet Security you need to uninstall it completely in order to be able to restore to a previous point.
Before trying the above solutions you can try the following that exploit a bug on windows:
  1. turn off System Restore,
  2. Shutdown,
  3. Power Up,
  4. enable System Restore and
  5. try to Restore.
Best of luck.

Windows XP freezes half way through Restore program?


Select an earler restore point. If it still doesn't work step back earlier. Somewhere in the restore date history there has to have been a date where the system worked. Remember that the restore process can take some time if a lot of material has to be restored

My on screen display has gone small


What do you mean has gone small? You mean your icons are smaller?

Try changing your screen resolution. Right Click on an open space on the desktop and select Properties. When the Display Properties window opens select the Appearance tab. Look down at the bottom and you can make sure your Font Size is Normal, if not change it to Normal. Click the Settings tab and change your screen resolution. The higher the resolution, the smaller the icons. Size 1024x768 is what most people use.

You can also get to the display properties to perform the steps above by clicking Start/Control Panel or Start/Settings/Control Panel. Look for Display or Appearance and Personalization. Open it and the display properties window will open.

If you are using Windows 7 you can also just click Start and in the search box type Screen Resolution. Look up at the top for the search results and click on Screen Resolution.

If you can't get it back to the way it was you can try doing a System Restore. System Restore allows you to select a Restore Point (date and time) before you started having problems. So if you display went small yesterday, then select a restore point before yesterday.

System Restore does not delete your data, documents, music, pictures, videos or programs (unless the program was installed after the restore point you selected). To start System Restore click Start/Program/Accessories/System Tools/System Restore then select a data and time before you started having the issue.

If you are using Windows 7 you can just click Start then in the search box type System Restore and look up at the returned search results and select System Restore.

System Recovery on the other hand deletes everything and sets your system back to when your first purchased it.

Your PC is infected by virus, if you have a good restore point (start>all programs>accessories>system tools>system restore) you can fix this problem by restoring into a previous state, some times your antivirus will not allow you for successful restoration (you may have uninstall it)(try without un-installation first), or use Kspersky Internet Security 2012 You can download and install its 30 day trial (I trusted this application very much)

Error: 0xC004D401 an unauthorized change was made to windows The security processor reported a system file mismatch error.


I suspect a program or driver for a hardware device was just installed prior to this error. Best thing to do is to use Windows Restore and use a restore point dated before the first occurance of the error. You may need to repeat this process choosing previous restore points until system is back to normal or you have run out of restore points.
Here's how:
Startup computer and go into safe mode (Press F5 key as computer is starting up but before you see the Windows logo screen).
Open your Windows Vista Start menu, select All Programs, select System Tools, and then choose System Restore.
Use the System Restore Wizard to choose a restore point/date that was created before the error started occurring on your Windows Vista computer.
Revert your system configuration to this same restore point.

If error still occurs and you had other restore points, you can repeat process with older restore points.

If you have gone back several points and still cannot, you may have not choice but to do a full Windows restore. This can result in a loss of data.

If you get to this point, re-post here for instructs on how to possibly save data before doing a full restore.
