System Restore problem

by hermanpl / March 31, 2004 11:07 PM PST

This morning when my son turned on the computer it asked if he wanted to do a system restore. He went back and had our system restored to June 8, 2003. I want to bring it back to what it was doing on March 31, 2004. How do I do that? We are running Windows XP. Thanks for any help....

Try this: Start/All Programs/Accessories/System Tools/System Restore. Start the restore program to see if you have a more current restore date. Your options for new restore points will be highlighted on the calendar.
I'm not sure if the last restore wiped out the more recent restore points, but you'll have to look to see.
Hope this will help.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
