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.

Re: Windows Restore only displays one restore date;...
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

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
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
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)
If you want to put everything to factory settings, then just restore Windows XP to the installation date or the date of purchase of your Computer.To restore the computer follow these steps.
1.) Start--> All Programs---> Accessories--> System Tools ----> System Restore.
2) Open System Restore tool and then move back to the initial installation of your Operating System. Click the "Back" on the calender displayed.
3) When the installation month is displayed you can see some bold or highlighted dates.
4) Click any highlighted Day and then Press "Next" .
Now the System Restore will be performed and the system restarts.
5) After the system restart you will be notified of a successful restoration completed.
In the above way you can put the factory settings of the operating system.
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.
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.
am not sure how thos thing disappeared, but you can try running system restore which will take back you system back to previous date
To run system restore
Click on start >>programs >>accessories>> system tools>>system restore and follow the instruction on the screen.
