Question about Microsoft Windows Vista Home Premium with Service Pack 1: Windows
Attempting to Restore to a previous date, I select a date from a range of today back a week ago, but none of them will work.
I tried to "Create" a restore point, it won't do that either. It just freezes for 20 min, and gives me a time-out message, that nothing changed, and the restore point was not created. Nothing was changed.
The machine will also not shut down on it's own. It will start into shutdown, as far as the "shutting down" message, then hang forever. I have to force it by holding the power key.
It will then start up normally, showing me the message that it didn't shut down properly, and offering me safe modes.
I've run Registry Mechanic, I have Malware bytes, AVG; nothing says I have a problem. But I do.
Any answers short of reloading Windows. It's a Vista Home Premium on a yr old HP laptop that hasn't had any problems 'til now.

Tips for a great answer:
your PC/ Laptop and log in to windows.
Go to 'Start'--->Programs--->Accessories--->System Tools--->Click 'System Restore'
A 'System Restore' window will appear.
Here you will have to check "Restore computer to an earlier time' and click Next
Now you will find one Month Calendar window with Dates below, go to the previous month by clicking the '<' sign in the upper left hand corner of the Month Calendar and select any date that you see in Bold.
Note: It is better if you could remember from which date you are
facing the issue, try to select a date prior to that date.
The detail of that particular date should show "System
Checkpoint" and time on the right hand side box. Select that date.
Now, Click on Next and System Restore will start and windows will take a reboot.
After reboot your problem should be resolved.
