Re: System restore
System restore is iffy. You don't always get the desiresd result. Best bet is to use a backup and restore from that. Ghost or other backup software will do nicely. Otherwise you may think you solved a problem when you really didn't. You don't get rid of viruses using system restore. It only restores system settings and stuff like that. Dunno why your settings aren't sticking though.
Change the world. Of one person. Today.
If your equation requires either a complex combination of variables to get the desired result OR you can't seem to get the result regardless of the variables....it ain't your variables, it's your constant.
