Look grayed out the "look" button, and displayed "scanning." Then displayed the "look" button again. No notepad window.

Ok - Good.

With your XP CD still inserted, Go Start > Run and copy/paste the following command into the run box:

rundll32.exe advpack.dll,LaunchINFSection C:\Windows.1\Inf\sr.inf

You will be prompted for the file SR.sys. Copy/paste C:\WINDOWS.1\ServicePackFiles\i386 into the (Copy files from:) box and click OK.

You'll then see a window copying all the files over from the XP CD that are needed to reinstall System Restore.

You'll see a message "You must restart your computer before the new settings will take effect.
Do you want to restart your computer now
?"

Click Yes and allow the computer to reboot.


Let me know if you have System restore working.

I have a SR line under Accessories/System tools, but when I click on it I get a message

System Restore is not able to protect your computer. Please restart your computer and run System Restore again.

twice, now

I conclude that it isn't working.
