I am fairly sure that if you stop the system restore mid stream it  will just resort back to where it was w/o any problems.  Then you can restore in safe mode. If it took that long ,if I were you , i would go and clean the harddrive or run check disk or download hard drive tools from;    seagate.com      and check the hard drive .  Your other option is to use you restore disk and restore the whole thing. If the hard drive is bad you will ending up doing this after you install a new hard drive.

@i bought in 2007 the e macines windows vista home premium, and i get an error code that claims i have a registry error, how can i fix this


You didn't give us much information, but I would start the computer in safe mode, if possible (hit F8 when the computer is starting up--keep tapping on it until you get the screen that lets you choose safe mode.)
Once the computer is running, do a system restore back a few days or so to when it was running OK.
Other suggestion, rather than safe mode on startup--choose "repair my computer."

Unable to restore


You are really not giving enough information to be of good help.

What kind of restore have you tried to do? Have you tried to restore from MS Backup ?
Is this a system restore.?

Anyway, if you have your system restoration disk, install it and fallow the prompts.
Or is you are restoring from vista, type recovery manager and select from the list of items.
If you are trying to do a complete restore, choose that item.

Acer loops booting


Hi,
The problem is caused by bad drivers not being able to load up, when you are in safe mode perform a system restore and take the computer back to a date before the problems arose, the computer should boot up fine once system restore is complete.


Good luck

Hello. I am running vista home ultimate 64bit. Manually I am unable to create a restore point. Error message 0x8004230F unexpected error for shadow copy provider. I have check in the computer management...


Sometimes, Windows Vista Ultimate 64bit will not allow to create a restore point as it is self scheduled to create its own restore system restore points.

To over-come this: turn the system off, press the on button and keep pressing the F8 button to get into Safe Mode. Once you are in Safe Mode, go to the System Restore and then create a Restore Point. Once you have done this, shut down and restart the system, you will then see your restore point that you have created.

Hope this helps

Rebooting windows vista back to when i first got without a disc


You might try system restore option and restore it to a date you know it worked well
1.
Click Start, point to All Programs, point to Accessories, point to System Tools, and then click System Restore.
2.
On the Welcome screen, click Restore my computer to an earlier time, and then click Next.
3.
On the Select a Restore Point page, select the date from the calendar that shows the point you'd like to restore to, as shown in Figure 2, and then click Next.
sysrest2.jpg
Figure 2
4.
On the Confirm Restore Point Selection page, verify that the correct restore point is chosen, and then close any open programs.
5.
Click Next if you are ready to proceed or click Back to change the restore point.
6.
The computer will shut down automatically and reboot. On reboot, you'll see the Restoration Complete page, and then click OK.

After reviewing the stability of your system, you can choose another restore point or undo this restoration. Just open System Restore and make the appropriate choice. After you use System Restore, you'll have an additional task, Undo my last restoration, on the System Restore Welcome page. Remember that you'll have to reinstall any programs that were installed after the restore point.
If System Restore doesn't work in Normal Mode, it might work in Safe Mode. To use System Restore in Safe Mode, press the F8 key during reboot and choose Safe Mode. When your computer starts in either Safe Mode or Normal Mode, System Restore can be used to capture a working previous state. System Restore can't be opened unless the system is bootable into one of these modes.
