You might have spyware. Do a web search for spybot search and destroy and see if that works. It is free.
I have PIV 1.6 GH. 256 DDRAM, Windows XP Pro. System restore points are created according schedule and whenever new software are installed. But when I want to restore to an earlier point, I follow all procedures guided by the wizard, but when I click the "Restore" button, the "time capsule" cursor appears and immediately disappears and restoration is not made. What is wrong and what I should do?
