    Hello Everyone, and a Happy New Year to you all!

    I am trying to reset my computer to an earlier date but after the computer restarts I get the message:

    'Computer cannot be restored to a new date.'

    I have installed All the XP updates but this has made no difference.

    Does anyone know of a way to get the 'restore' system to start again or must one reset the system, which I do not really want to do?

    regards

    Try System Restore from Safe Mode.

    My apologies for not replying sooner, and thank you for replying. I could not restore to any date; the same in Safe mode.

    Fortunately I always have a restore HD with my saved system on it, and so restored back to normal. Everything is OK except............which I will put into a new thread.

    regards
