Restore

by p.j.hutchison In reply to System restore

Why do you need to a restore in the first place?
Can you get to the desktop in a normal boot?
Can the driver or application be uninstalled in the normal manner in Device Manager or Add/Remove programs?

Tech. "Question" belongs in the "Questions" forum

by deepsand In reply to System restore

The "Discussion" forum is for matters of general discussion, not specific problems in search of a solution.

Post problems such as this to the "Question" forum, rather than the "Discussion" forum. There are those who specifically seek out problems in need of a solution, and that's where they go to look for such.

Additionally, the "Question" forum provides for your rating the helpfulness of responses, so that others with the same or similar problem might be able to more easily find a solution.

Same here

by xbry89x In reply to Tech. "Question" belongs ...

I'm having the exact same problem. The reason for my need to restore, is that my add/remove program buttons are gone. When I try the restore, it always comes back saying that it was unable to complete the restore. I've tried many different restore points, same story.

If anyone could shed some light on this subject I'd be greatful.

backup disks

Have you backed up using your disks? I learned to do that ever since I lost all of my music.

Suggestion.

by deepsand In reply to Same here

Try the "Questions" forum; the "Discussion" forum is for matters of general discussion, not specific problems in search of a solution.

Post problems such as this to the "Question" forum, rather than the "Discussion" forum. There are those who specifically seek out problems in need of a solution, and that's where they go to look for such.

Additionally there are the benefits that:

1) The "Questions" forum provides for your feedback, by way of your being able to mark "helpful" responses as such. This does not necessarily mean that a given response contained the complete solution to your problem, but only that it served to guide you toward it. This is intended to serve as an aid to those who may in the future have a problem similar to yours, so that they might have a ready source of reference available, thereby perhaps obviating the need for them to repeat questions previously asked and answered.

2) The revised TR makes it quite difficult to find both "Discussions" and "Questions" that have not had a fairly recent post, owing to some functions comingling them in the listings. By keeping each type in their respective forums, it is easier for all to find what they are looking for.
