You have to do a system restore. It should be in the Control Panel. When you get to it, there should be options on what date to set and how far back you want to restore your system.

i thought it was that, but i clicked it and then it just restarted my computer, i'll try it again after the virus scan has finished

System restore is largely a piece of crap. It is often corrupted and wont work. Not to mention some virsus target it so you can't use it.

start, all programs, accessories, system tools, system restore, .....simplynate is right largely it doesnt work if you have the factory disks they sent with the computer you can back-up what you want and wipe your computer back to the way it was when you took it out the box......


try the system restore first and try to go as far back as you can.........good luck........:thumb02:

That's weird cuz when I had my PC and it had a big problem, I would just do a system restore and it always work.

System restore usually works...but you have to tell it to do it in XP if I remember right...
