jperret2003 is on a distinguished road


After installing one of the many Updates that Microsoft sends - i found that i no longer have System Restore on my computer - or for that matter nothing even asso. with it.- where did it go????? Any way after reading a long of the know. base on Microsoft's pages about the only way to get it back is to do a reinstall - I would like to find an easier way around this if i can. Thanks

To create restore points follow the steps below:
  • Start -> Programs -> Accessories -> System Tools -> click System Restore.
  • In the System Restore dialog box -> click Create a restore point -> click Next.
  • Type a description for your restore point, such as "Before install_on_Apr30", -> click Create.
If your system fails, and you want to revert back to your previous state
Press F8 in the boot menu, and then click Last known good configuration.
Windows XP restores your system to the most recent restore point.
