Can't restore computer to an earlier date!

[ Edited ]
I can't create a restore point to an earlier time on my computer. I did have restore points at one time but they are gone now. How do I get them back or restore my computer to an realer date when it was working correctly??? My OS is Windows XP and I this is a HP Pavilion Slimline s7620n PC. PLEASE HELP!??!

Re: Can't restore computer to an earlier date!

First of all you can not create a restore point for an earlier date. if the restore points created earlier have gone, then you will not be able to restore the PC to an earlier date. try creating a restore point for the current date and check if it creates restore point.  Also in services.msc check system restore service is running.

Try and check the Restore points in Safe Mode.

Re: Can't restore computer to an earlier date!

you can look up the recent update

looking at your windows updates list

and take notes what what installed

 

and to find the updates to uninstal

you will find in the control panel

 

Xp - Add and Remove

Vista - Programs and features

 

once you see all the software and updates

you will see a list of them

 if you cant see the microsoft update

look for the square empty box and if

if it neeeds to be checked or unchecked

 

and also it will show the dates installed beside

the softwares and app and patches

 

depending what is causing your problems

remove one thing at a time till you find

the problem but

when window updates will see that

you dont have it when your computer

doing window update

but while you are at the windows update

and tells you need to update

remove the check mark beside the patches

that you do not want to install

 

good luck
