Ok here is a question to all, in XP we have system restore, and we can create restore points. Now should I have a problem and need to run MSCONFIG, and run selective start up, I lose all the restore points This also happens when you turn off restore, to say work out computer problems, or mabe a trogon infection. Now here is the question to ponder, what if you want to retain restore points, rather then lose them, and still be able to work on you're system? Has anyone come up with a work around to this one, I would be interested in hearing a little discussion on this dilemma. :idea:

The restore points are contained into a hidden directory called: System Volume Information. You can save that one if you want to backup your restore …
