when did this start happening? did you install anything? antivirus or something? or a different utility like goback? give some details on what you last did and when this started happening. suppose you could try running it at command prompt. also, when doing system restore disconnect any xtra things like printers, cams, etc. here is what to do in Dos:
(use boot disk if need be to get to Dos). to change directories its
cd <directory name>... dir /p shows a list of whats in the directory... cd.. goes back one in the directory. oh yeah, %systemroot% is whatever you have for system folder. could be windows, or winnt, or whatever. when you finally get to this (I'll put MY system folder, but yours maybe different) C:\winnt\system32\restore\ you type in:
then continue on from there, just make sure to disconnect un needed periphs.
If you argue with an idiot he will drag you down to his level and beat you with experience.
