SYSTEM RESTORE NOT RESTORING

by Tabley / January 31, 2009 8:38 PM PST

When I select a date to restore the computer it goes through the process but when the computer is restarted I receive a message saying it cannot restore and asks me to select another point. However no matter which date I select it produces the same result. What can I do?

I have researched it apparently, it could be caused by the anti virus programme. I have sent an email to Panda Technical Support but to date have received no reply.

The reason.

The reason some antivirus programs break system restore is that they are trying to protect against exploits and more. But in doing so they also cause support issues.

Can you imagine if they had to reveal on the install page that it breaks System Restore? Their sales would plummet as people flock to something else. So they don't tell and we end up having to ask.
