    My system restore is set at 12% 2284MB. Can I decrease this, and what is a good setting to have and still be able to have restore points? Thanks for your help.

    Yes you can decrease it, but I suggest u do a system restore point, right before u do anything major, new drivers, install programs, mess around with the registry, etc.

    Iceman 38 - I think DCNickie50 is asking for a size to be reserved for restore points. I know everyone's puter is different - but my restore points average around 50 MB - so if that's anything to go on - I would say 500 mb would be plenty.

    That should give ya at least 5 restore points and that way - ya have more than one to fall back on if it is needed.

    DCNickie50 - you also be sure to follow Iceman 38's excellent advice. Always create a restore point before u do anything major.

    Oh yeah - In my opinion - never disable system restore - it has saved my butt a couple of times!
