      Hi Jim, Margaret,

      Margaret isn't really confused, my version of XP Home also has System
      Restore, and I have used it a couple of times.

      It is not a 3rd party version or a system backup. I have a built from
      scratch computer, not a Dell or any other brand.

      One important extra about Restore points – data is NOT LOST ! Although it restores earlier programme settings etc. the associated data remains. It really is

        On the next screen type in a reminder like "System is Broken".

        Finish the wizard.

        Now do it all again and this time pick RESTORE MY COMPUTER TO AN EARLIER

        When the calendar comes up pick a darkened date that the system was working
        correctly and restore your system to that day.

        Note, any changes to your system since that day will not show.

        The ability to restore your system to an earlier time is the one most
        important aspect of XP Pro and is not available with the Home edition.

        The system will create restore points for you when you install new software,
        and every day or so but it is a good idea to create one yourself every once
        in awhile when your system is performing just the way you want it to.

        The number of restore points it will save depends on the size of your hard

        You do not need to enter the time and date in your description, it is done
        automatically for you.

        You can turn around and restore it back to the "System is Broken" restore
        point and continue as you are right now, or pick any other restore point
        that you think might work. You can go back and forth with no problem.

        You can get your system totally balled up and restore it to yesterday or an
        hour ago with not much more than a reboot if you create a restore point
        before you try new things.

        If you have ever screwed up your system with 98 or 2K and spent a couple of
        days trying to get it back, those days are over with XP Pro.

        You can change your Restore Settings at CONTROL PANEL>SYSTEM>SYSTEM RESTORE

        You can put a shortcut to it on your desktop by creating a shortcut to
