I´m hoping someone can help.
System restore is not listed in the My Computer Properties. I have searched the web and tried to restart it using the Microsoft KB using Net Start, but, it doesn´t want to play.
Every suggestion I have found seems to assume that System Restore is listed in the Computer Management Console under services, but (just to be awkward), it isn´t listed, so, I am unable to activate it.
I am running a standalone home PC, WinXP Pro, Ver 2002, SP2.
I bought the pc from a friend and neither Sys Restore or Task Manager were working, I have managed to re-activate Task Manager. I assume a past virus may have caused both problems, but, none are now present. The pc was recently cleaned using Malware Guard and is currently running Avast Anti-Virus (Free Version), though I have just changed from AVG 8.0 which did not report any problems before removal yesterday when I installed Avast.
Can anyone help?
