Hi
  I installed a program and before i did, i set a restore point as i always do, the program(dvd2one) was no good so i went to restore pc back to before installation but it gave me an error saying it was not possible to revert back to this time. I tried another restore point but this gave me the same error.
Have searched microsoft help but to no avail.
Any ideas?
Don't fancy formatting and reinstalling.
Thanks

Have you tried safe mode and choosing Repair.Or you can just use you XP disc and use "upgrade" instead of "New Install" that way it will install all the files without you loosing any of yours.

Thanx for reply
Could you be more specific on "safe mode and repair"
And
Is it perfectly safe to insert Xp disc and update without losing anything at all? I dont think i can do this because it will automatically update C drive which is Windows98se (i have my pc as a dual boot set up)

I also notice that although i have DMA if available selected but it will only allow PIO
Could this be part of the problem?

Option 1..Have you been to Windows Update and downloaded the System Restore Update for Windows Me? Without it, restore points created after September 8th 2001 don't work.

Option 2...Make sure you have not turned off the Scheduled Tasks or any of the PCHealth functions. They are required for RESTORE to work correctly. First check (System Tools - Scheduled Tasks) is active by clicking the "Advanced" tab. The first option should read "Stop Using Task Scheduler". If not, click on it to change it. Next check the PCHealth entry, it should be enabled to run every 10 minutes.

Next RUN MSCONFIG and open the Startup tab. You should have both an entry for PCHealth checked and one for Scheduling Agent. These startup the background programs for PCHealth data collection and the Scheduler.
