    Thanks for the info on what settings to use for restore points. Question, how do you create a restore point or does windows do that automatically. Again thanks for all the help.

    To set a restore point. First click> START> PROGRAMS>ACCESSORIES> SYSTEM TOOLS> SYSTEM RESTORE.

    Then you will see this window.

    Click on *CREATE A RESTORE POINT*. Then click *NEXT*.

    Then type in whatever name you want for the restore point. Then click *CREATE*.

    XP will create the restore point and then click *CLOSE*. That's it. :D

    XP also creates Restore Points every time you shut down (Complete shut down, not a reboot).
