Why use Goback when you have the system restore app. built in w/ XP? From my experience, all rescue apps, Winrescue, Goback, Uninstaller, etc., are 3rd party apps and have a tendency to not deliver the goods as promised.
Reason I even considered it in the first place was because when I inadvertently cut power to my machine during shutdown I was unable to do anything with it afterwards. (inXPerienced as I am). I must have really f****d the system up at a critical point. Anyway - I was left with re-formatting and re-installing XP - a lengthy and costly (in terms of time, files lost etc.) process for me. I saw GoBack advertised and I am running the trial download just now. In response to your comment about the system restore app.- that's OK if you can actually get XP to run - but I couldn't.
It's a program I've used for a couple of years, and I wouldn't be without it. It's saved my behind many times. One of the differences between GoBack and XP restore is that XP doesn't set many restore points. GoBack does. You can put aside up to 10% of your disk space for restores, and that's the level I use. I've had to go back several days, and GoBack handles it easily. I've used it to remove viruses, get rid of a program which didn't uninstall properly, and to restore files deleted accidentaly. All in all, it's a lifesaver.

Xp system Restore by default reserves up to 12% of your hard drive for restore points so depending on your harddrive size you could end up with a few days or weeks worth of restore points
