      Go to START>HELP AND SUPPORT>UNDO CHANGES TO YOUR COMPUTER WITH SYSTEM
      RESTORE

      Pick CREATE A RESTORE POINT

      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
      TIME

      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
      drive.

      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
      TAB

      You can put a shortcut to it on your desktop by creating a shortcut to
      C:\WINDOWS\system32\Restore\rstrui.exe

      Regards,

      Jim
