Since you did not provide the type of operating system that you are using, I will just give you two, i.e the one for Windows Vista and The one for Windows XP.

1. For Windows Vista, the easiest way that I would tell you is to Click on Start, then All Programs, then Click on Run. Then type rstrui.exe inside the space and press enter, then just follow the Instructions from there and select the most recent restore point that you want.

2. The general way to run it, for Windows XP (and also WIndows Vista) is to click on start, then all programs, then accessories, then system tools.
There you will see the system restore.

Hope this helps you out.

First make sure your virus protection is up to date and run a scan and restart. If that didn't help, and it was my computer, I'd do a System Restore back to when it was running right. Here's a link with some good instructions to do a System Restore: Restore Your System When You Can Launch System Restore

Sep 01, 2014 | Computers & Internet



System Restore is a tool that takes your computer back to a previously working state. This option is available in Windows ME, Windows XP and Windows Vista. Windows takes snapshots of critical system files, program files and registry settings and stores them as "Restore Points". If ever you should have any problem with your computer, you can "restore" your computer to one of these Restore Points, when your computer was working fine.
Please remember - System restore does NOT have any effect on your personal files such as emails, documents or photographs.
In order to perform a System Restore, you must have administrative rights in your computer. If this is your own personal computer, then chances are that you will be having administrative rights in it, however if you are on a network computer, say for example in a computer at your workplace, then you will have to request your Network Administrator to help you.
In order to restore Windows to a previously working "Restore Point" follow the steps given below:
1. Log on to Windows with administrative rights.
2. Click Start, go to All Programs, go to Accessories, go to System Tools, and then click System Restore. System Restore starts.
3. On the Welcome to System Restore page, click Restore my computer to an earlier time (if it is not already selected), and then click Next.
4. On the Select a Restore Point page, click the most recent system restore point and then click Next.
Note A System Restore message may appear that lists configuration changes that System Restore will make. Click OK.

5. On the Confirm Restore Point Selection page, click Next. System Restore restores the previous Windows XP configuration, and then restarts the computer.
6. Log on back to your computer. The System Restore Restoration Complete page is displayed.
7. Click OK.

If you have successfully restored your computer to a previous state, and the computer is performing as it should be, you can stop here.
But if the restore process completed successfully and the computer is still not performing as you want, you can either restore your computer to a different restore point or just undo the current System Restore. In order to undo a System Restore, please continue reading.
Many times, you may not be able to run System Restore because your computer will not start up normally. But you can still run System Restore from the command prompt.
  • Click on Start -> Run -> and type in %systemrestore%\system32\restore\rstrui.exe and click OK
  1. Start up the computer in Safe Mode or Safe Mode with Command Prompt
  2. At the Command Prompt type %systemrestore%\system32\restore\rstrui.exe
  3. You can replace %systemrestore% with C:\Windows, if you like
  4. You might have to select the Operating System in your computer
  5. You might also have to enter your username and password
  6. You should have Administrator Rights in your computer to do this.

You may have unintentionally restored Windows XP to a previous configuration that you do not want. To undo the restoration, follow these steps:
1. Log on to Windows with administrative rights.
2. Click Start, go to All Programs, go to Accessories, go to System Tools, and then click System Restore. System Restore starts.
3. On the Welcome to System Restore page, click Undo my last restoration, and then click Next.
Note A System Restore message may appear that lists configuration changes that System Restore will make. Click OK.
4. On the Confirm Restoration Undo page, click Next. System Restore restores the original Windows XP configuration, and then restarts the computer.
5. Logon to the computer as Administrator. The System Restore Undo Complete page appears.
6. Click OK.
You can now run System Restore again from a Different Restore Point.

Has a virus. Has Norton. Need to restore back to earlier date. How?

Helloviksai, the best thing to do to recover the Computer back to an 'Earlier Date!' Is to do a "System Restore." "Follow these instructions carefully!" The first thing you want to do is click on the "Start Button," paul7of9_50.jpg from the Desktop.

Next, click on "All Programs," scroll to find "Accessories."

  • Now, select the "System Tools." You will see in the next window that opens!
  • "System Restore." paul7of9_119.jpg
  • "This is very important! "
  • "Once you click on the System Restore "shortcut!"
  • It will start to look for the last known time of a change in the Computer.
  • ie; "Virus Infection." paul7of9_52.jpg

Important!: The System restore can take as long as a 1/2 an hour to run; so be patient!Warning:"Do not try to do any type of work. Do not 'touch' the [Keyboard] for any reason."

  • Let the (Restore) run it's configurations.
  • Once the "System Restore" finds the correct "Date and Time" of the event?
  • Choose the Date closest to the time of the 'occurrence'. paul7of9_120.jpg
  • Next, click on the [Next Button]. paul7of9_121.jpg
  • Now, once again, there will be a message telling you not to do anything with the computer.
  • "The System Restore will 'run' for a while; so once again be patient!."
  • The computer will then; "Shutdown and Restart."
  • "Lo-gin" if you have to; but!
!Attention: "Do not touch the Keyboard once the Desktop 'window' opens.
"Because the {System Restore}, 'will' still be running."
Wait! Until there is a message letting you know the {Restore} of your System was successful!

If this information helped? Return and give a "Helpful Rating," please!
Thanks, paul7of9

Following a System Restore on my Dell Inspiron it has come up with windowsroot system 32 ntoskrnl. The computer was not supplied with the full Window's XP home edition CD, just a Dell reinstallation CD...

If you get that message every time you run system restore, that restore point is no longer any good. You need to try a different restore point on a different date. System restore is NOT meant to be a backup. You need to be running a backup of your computer if you don't want to lose your data. Hopefully you will have another restore point, possibly earlier than the one you used, which is good. If you need to reinstall windows, you will need to get a disk. You can send me a message if you need one.

I have a vista lap top and today I could not open my library in realplayer it worked fine until today. I've tried reinstalling it and that didn't work. if someone could walk me through how to fix it that...

Restoring to an older restore point If something went wrong on your computer and you wanted to revert to an earlier restore point that was taken either automatically or manually (see next topic), you can do so by using the System Restore application. Click on the Start button All Programs > Accessories > System Tools, or by typing rstrui.exe from the Run option:

Note that running System Restore requires administrative permissions.
System Restore can be run and allowed to select the "best" restore point to which to restore your computer to, or it can be used to manually restore your computer's system files to an earlier point in time of your choice.Just select "Choose a different restore point" and press Next.

Can't system restore


Ok, if you get a message your computer cannot be restored to this
date, the restore foldr is damaged.

There is actually something you can try, but i would suggest that you backup all the files you want to keep and the drivers you need and format your computer.

Method 1: Make sure that the System Restore service is running loadTOCNode(2, 'moreinformation'); To do this, use one of the following methods:
  • Look in Control Panel. To do this, follow these steps:
    1. Click Start, click Run, and then type compmgmt.msc in the Open box, and then press Enter.
    2. Expand Services, and then click System Restore Services..

      If the Status of System Restore Service is not Started, click Start on the toolbar to start it.
  • Open a Command Prompt window. To do this, follow these steps:
    1. Click Start, click Run, type CMD in the Open box, and then press Enter.
    2. Type Net Start at the command prompt to make sure that the System Restore Service is up and is running.

      If the System Restore Service is not listed, type net start "System Restore Service", and then press Enter.
uparrow.gifBack to the top Method 2: Make sure that System Restore is enabled on the drives where you want System Restore enabled loadTOCNode(2, 'moreinformation'); To do this follow these steps:
  1. Click Start, right-click My Computer, and then click Properties.
  2. Click the System Restore tab.
  3. If the System Restore is enabled, the Status column of a drive will show Monitoring.
    If not, you can clear to clear the Turn off System Restore on all drives, and then click OK to enable it.
uparrow.gifBack to the top Method 3: Make sure that you have sufficient disk space on all the drives where System Restore is enabled loadTOCNode(2, 'moreinformation'); To do this, follow these steps:
  1. To check for free disk space, click Start, click Run, type diskmgmt.msc and then press Enter. Look at each drive System Restore is monitoring for free space.
  2. If the free space on any partition system restore is monitoring falls lower than 50 MB, System Restore will suspend and remove all restore points to free disk space. You should have already received a low free disk space message by now. System Restore will resume monitoring when free disk space reaches 200 MB.

    Note In most cases you do not have to have System Restore monitor Partitions/drives other than the one Windows is installed on. System Restore does not monitor data files.
uparrow.gifBack to the top Method 4: View the event logs to investigate System Restore service errors loadTOCNode(2, 'moreinformation'); To do this, follow these steps:
  1. Click Start, click Run, type eventvwr.msc /s in the Open box, and then press Enter.
  2. Click the System category.
  3. Click the Source tab to sort by name, and then look for "sr" or "srservice." Double-click each of these services, and then evaluate the event description for any indication of the cause of the problem.
uparrow.gifBack to the top Method 5: Boot in safe mode and run the System Restore tool loadTOCNode(2, 'moreinformation'); To boot in safe mode follow these steps:
  1. Restart the computer. Immediately after the screen goes blank for the first time, or after the BIOS post ends, start taping the F8 key repeatedly. The Windows Advanced Options menu appears.

    If the menu does not appear, restart the computer and try again.
  2. Select Safe Mode, and then press ENTER. As files load they will scroll down the screen.

    Note Safe mode uses a minimal set of device drivers and services to start Windows. The default Microsoft VGA driver is used for display at 640 X480 resolution and in 16 colors.
  3. Log on to the Administrator account. If a password was never set, leave the password blank and press ENTER or click the green arrow.
  4. Click No in the safe mode information screen to start System Restore.
  5. Select Restore my computer to an earlier time, and then click Next to proceed to select a date with restore points available.
  6. Click Next to begin restoring the system to a previous state.
This comes from Microsoft's site under advanced system restore propperties, so if this does not work, then formatting the pc is the only sollution. Hope this can help you.

Kind regards
