    I have tried clicking start then all programmes then accessories then system tools then system restore and all that pops up is a blank box with system restore at the top. I have used system restore on this computer before but now it seems to have disappeared! Also when I click start then help and support nothing happens at all!

    I am having probems with my e-mails and that is why I wanted to system restore. My computer is a Packard Bell running windows xp media centre. It was bought new at Christmas.

    Any ideas please? :(

    Not sure but I believe Windows updates can cause restore points to vanish. Might be worth a look on the MS knowledge base.

    I suspect your problems may run deeper than a simple "system restore". To be able to help you out we need more info i.e. why are you trying system restore. What were you doing previously that may have prompted this course of action.

    You have of course tried the old MS fix-all of a reboot. :)
