    nortons goback?do you mean roxio goback3 or norton ghost?you get the system restore disabled because you or one of your programs installed disabled it you can enable it by

    1.)right click the my computer icon
    2.)go to properties
    3.)click on the system retore tab
    4.)click settings and choose how much hard drive space you want to use for system restore

    hope that helps

    on a side note if you meant roxio goback3 id recommend uninstalling it i have had it installed it on my PC and it causes major slowdows and constant hard drive access since it constantly monitors you hard drives.

    not sure then i guess it has different effects depending on the PC ive talked to lots of people on the roxio forums that had the same problem
     
  5. I don't use GoBack anymore. I used to for a long time, though. I loved it. It's great when you make constant changes to your system. System Restore doesn't completely restore everything; GoBack does.

    There are a few drawbacks to it. It tends to interfere with some programs. (or else some programs interfere with it...depends how you look at it). It made defragging for me slow to a crawl. But in a pinch, it's great to have.

    I like using Drive Image 2002 now. But if I didn't, I would use GoBack, simply because I'm always changing something or other, and System Restore just doesn't get it.
