Question about Dell Dimension 3100 PC Desktop
I have a dell desktop with xp. im trying to do a system restore. when i get to the part that ask if i want to restore or reboot it will only let me choose reboot.
Hello, I highly suggest reinstalling Windows XP. Backup all of your files onto an External Harddrive. Then use a windows XP CD and reinstall windows XP. Its very simple. I suggest googling the instructions, and printing them. System restore is a very limited feature in windows. I don't suggest it anyways, it has a very low success rate. Besides, system restore does not fix a computer after a virus. It will simply restore a few settings, such as printers, and this and that.

Disable system restore - fix what the problem is and delete the old system restore points and then re enable the system restore and make a restore point again.
If you need more help post back and explain what the problem is or why you are trying to restore it and I will help further.
