System restore not working

By kotecha_deepa ·
I have a home laptop with Win XP home installed, for quite a while I have tried to use system restore to restore my system and everytime I get a message telling me that it is impossible. I have also tried in safe mode but that has not worked either. I cannot think of any other way to make it work. Please help!!

SR database

by p.j.hutchison In reply to System restore not workin ...

Sounds like the SR Database has got corrupted. You will need to clear it out and start from fresh.
a) Open System control panel
b) Select System restore
c) Tick box to turn off SR for all drives
d) Reboot
e) Turn on SR for all drives in system control panel

It should start working again.
