Your computer cannot be restored to...

I wanted to restore my computer XPpro Sp2 to an earlier state and I keep
getting the message " Your computer cannot be restored to..." I have
tried 4 dates and allways the same reply.

I haven't had this problem before so any help would be most appreciated.

Hi

One or more of the System Restore files could have been corrupted - try
turning SR off/on - but I'm afraid that you will lose any existing
checkpoints:

Right click My Computer, select Properties and then the System Restore tab.
Enable 'Turn off System Restore on all drives' and reboot your PC. After
that 1st reboot go back into SR and disable 'Turn off System Restore on all
drives' and reboot your PC again. After that 2nd reboot you should have one
new SR checkpoint.

Thanks for your input. I would prefer to get to an earlier point for a
restore first, but if all else fails I will give your suggestion a go.

I am having the same problem as tokyosky. My system restore will not restore
to an earlier restore point. I have had this problem since installing SP2

Just to let others know I rebotted in safe mode and carried out a
restore from there which worked for me!

Hi,

What Symantec doesn’t tell you in this document is that the only restore points
that will work are those created with the "Turn protection on for my Symantec
protect" unchecked and "Symantec Resource Protection" turned off.

Restore points created with "Symantec Resource Protection" checked and turned
on, will display the message "Restoration Incomplete. Your computer cannot be
restored . . . "

To keep System Restore functioning correctly, disable the "Symantec Resource
Protection" feature until there a permanent fix is released.
