    My computer was turned off improperly and now the screen saver is extra large with a very large cursor.

    Hi jjbender3,

    1.) Click Start, point to All Programs, point to Accessories, point to System Tools, and then click System Restore.
    2.) On the Welcome to System Restore page, click to select the Restore my computer to an earlier time option, and then click Next.
    3.) 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.
    4.) On the Confirm Restore Point Selection page, click Next. System Restore restores the previous Windows XP configuration, and then restarts the computer.
    5.) Log in to the computer. Then click OK on the System Restore Restoration Complete page.

    To do System Restore in Vista and 7:

    1.) Type restore into the Start menu search box, and you'll immediately see System Restore at the top of the start menu. Click it.
    2.) Click one of the restore point, and you will have to confirm and then restart your computer to roll the system back.

    Hope this helps.

    My computer is not creating Restore Points... yes it's turned on... yes I know how to do a manual... but it disappears when the next Restore Point is created... can you help?

    Creating a System Restore point using a shortcut For a more elegant way to create a System Restore point using Script in Windows Vista, check out our article Create System Restore Points Quickly using Script in Windows Vista and Windows XP.
    Alternately, you may use the method below:
    Copy the contents below to a Notepad document, and save it to a file name with .vbs extension (Example: createrp.vbs) and close Notepad.
    set SRP = getobject("winmgmts:\\.\root\default:Systemrestore")
    CSRP = SRP.createrestorepoint ("Created a Restore Point now", 0, 100)
    If CSRP <> 0 then
    Msgbox "Error " & CSRP & ": Unable to create System Restore point"
    End if
    Right-click on the Desktop and select New - Shortcut
    Create a shortcut with the following target:
    wscript.exe c:\scripts\createrp.vbs
    Note: The above assumes that the createrp.vbs script is present in the c:\scripts folder. If that's not the case, change the Path accordingly.
    Name the shortcut file name as Create Restore Point
    Running the script To create a System Restore point, run the script with elevated mode. To do so, right-click on the newly created shortcut (Create Restore Point.lnk) and choose Run as administrator. When you are prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation. A System Restore point will automatically be created.

    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.

    Vanishing restore points

    Well known problem .... if you have a multi boot system with Xp and Vista/Win7 everytime you boot into XP the Vista/Win7 restore points will be deleted.

    This only happens if you use the Windows Boot Manager though. I would suggest using a third party Boot Manager to get over the problem.'

    I recommend OSL2000 loader which can handle just about any OS on any partition on any disk

    I'm Having problem with Vista, not detecting Pen Drive

    Unplug the pen drive before booting (newer laptops support booting from a USB drive, and they restore your "healthy restore point".

    Format the Pen drive from Disk Management (right click on computer, choose manage, select Disk Management) to 32 bit fat, this leaves it compatible with Windows 98 SE, but the 16 Bit seems to give Vista fits. Good luck.
