In have winxp sp2 on my pc but it does not have system restore. How or where can I upload one? Thanks.


To set up a system restore point, follow these steps:
  1. Close any programs that are open.
  2. Click Start, point to All Programs, point to Accessories, point to System Tools, and then click System Restore. The System Restore Wizard opens.

    Note If the System Restore Wizard does not open, the System Restore feature may be turned off. To turn System Restore on, see the "More Information" section in this article.
  3. Click Create a restore point, and then click Next.
  4. In Restore point description box, type a description for the restore point. Use a description that is easy to understand. If you are creating a restore point before you install specific software or hardware, you could use that information in the description.

    Note The date and time are automatically added to your restore point. Therefore, you do not have to use them in your description.
  5. Do one of the following:
    • To finish creating this restore point, click the Create button. The System Restore Wizard notifies you when the restore point is created.
    • To stop creating a restore point and to return to the Welcome to System Restore page, click the Back button.
    • To stop creating a restore point and to exit the System Restore Wizard, click the Cancel button.
  6. When you are finished, click the Close button.
Congratulations! You have successfully created a restore point, and you are finished.


Good luck and hope it helps.

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


Hi jjbender3,

What Operating System (Windows XP, Vista, 7) are you using? You can try to do a System Restore to go back to a previous date prior to the problem.
To do System Restore in XP:

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.

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.

HOW DO I DO A system restore from within windows


Click on Start/Accessories/SystemTools/SystemRestore Once there, you'll be prompted to Create a Restore Point or Restore to an earlier point in time. Select Restore to an earlier point in time and you will see a calendar. Click on the date you would like to restore to and click Continue. It's important to leave the machine alone while it performs the restore action. Once done, it will automatically reboot. After rebooting, you will get 1 of 2 messages:
  1. Your system have successfully been restored or
  2. System restore was unable to restore your computer, no changes were made to your system
Hope this answers your question. All the best!
