I have Win XP wiht SP2.
When I turn off the laptop and turn it on again, the System Restore gets disabled (as ssen in My Computers ->Properties->System Restore->Turn off system restore)
This happens every time I turn off my laptop.
Is there any solution?

Re: System Restore gets disabled
You must set the "Service" to "Automatic" here are some instructions. And a link to a M$ KB article about it.
Start the Group Policy Editor (gpedit.msc)
Navigate to Computer Configuration/Administrative Templates/System/System Restore
Set Turn off System Restore and Turn off Configuration to "Disable" Right click on My Computer and Select "Manage".
Navigate to Services and Applications/Services
Navigate to System Restore Service and double click On the General tab set [Startup Type] to "Automatic" using the drop down list
Click the Start button to start the service.
Close the Computer Management console
Return to System Restore in Group Policy Editor and configure both to "Not Configured"
Close Group Policy Editor and reboot the system.
After the reboot is complete, right click My Computer, select Properties and the tab for System Restore will have been restored. Configure it to your individual needs.

look for a FN + some key (F3-F12) combination to turn the touch pad off, there can also be a button next to the power button to switch touchpad on and off.
You can also try to disable it using windows itself by right clicking the touchpad software (by the system clock )and in it's settings look for an option to deactivate the internal touchpad.
Hope this helps.
Boot to Safe Mode, by pressing F8 during boot. Then try disabling startup programs. Go to Start > Run (search in Win 7) and type MSConfig. In Startup tab, uncheck anything that you don't want Windows to load automatically. It will make Windows boot faster and use less resources while running. This just disables them in startup. Programs will still load, but when only you initiate.
Remove all USB attached devices like drives. You may need to roll back system with System Restore. Under Safe Mode (press F8 during boot and choose Safe Mode).
Win 7 - Start > Search type System Restore. XP - Is Start > All Programs > Accessories > System Restore. Now choose a date prior to problem. You may have to try a few dates. Uninstall last program(s) that was installed, again in safe mode.
go to start menu then u see run. type in run "gpedit.msc" then enter and u can see group policy editor. then go to user configuration -administrative templates - system then u can find in right window "turn off autoplay" doubler cl kit and disable it.
Your keyboard uses a driver(small pieces of sftware). Windows might have corrupted the driver with no intentions. You can get into safe mode by pressing F8 on some models and you can either restore just before the update or uninstall the knowledge base update that caused it.
After remoting into system, noticed that updates.exe was still running in the task manager. Ended updates.exe and downloaded and installed Service Pack 3 for Windows XP. It installed, customer rebooted. Advised on a few maintenance tips for restore points, etc. Skip was a pleasure to work with.
please try thie following link which will lead you to the download site of HP. Please choose the apprpriate operating system link there (Win XP, Win XP 64 etc.). Then you can download the drivers needed...
