Win XP Pro, SP3.
I can create restore points, and they are visible, but when I attempt to restore to a previous state, the computer goes through the restore/reboot process, but ends up with a message to the effect that the computer could not be restored to a previous state, and nothing has been changed on the computer.
I have read previous posts concerning this problem, and have tried the solutions, with no success. I've attempted a restore from Safe mode, but the system hangs, and I get the message (from Task Manager) that system restore is not responding. I've removed (actually disabled) my antivirus program (Avira), and run the Norton Uninstaller (just to be sure, although I have no Norton Programs on my computer). I've verified that all the required services are running. Nothing seems to help.
I welcome any suggestions. Also, what is the name of the actual executable file that runs the system restore function? Perhaps this file is corrupted, and I might be able to replace it (?).
Thanks for any help you can provide.
