XP messed up. . .

XP Pro kept having problems for me. . .I would click on the start menu, then a program, and it would hang for like 8 seconds. . .

So, I did a system restore. . .my restore points only went back a couple of days (which I found strange). . . and it didn't fix the problem. . .

SO, I did a repair installation. . .worked fine. . .
Downloaded SP1. . .was acting weird, so I did a system restore to go back before SP1. . .it didn't work. . .came up with this error:

rstrui.exe - Entry Point Not Found
The procedure entry point RemoteAssistancePrepareSystemRestore could not be located in the dynamic link library WINSTA.dll.

SO. . .I did repair installation AGAIN. . .I just clicked on system restore again to check it out. . .I get the SAME error as above. . .

Any ideas. . . ? ? ?

Good grief Charlie Brown
If you don't need/want any of those restore points & want to get system restore working again then do this.
Right click my computer/properties/system restore. Turn it off all drives. Reboot. Go back & turn it on. It will create a new point which will work from there on.......or at least it should.

With all that installing/uninstalling if problems continue a format might be a good/clean way to go.
reformat. . .

I just reformatted about a month ago. . . and I just got around to finishing installing some programs and games. . .I do not want to do that again. . .

I will try the turning off thingy. . .thanks. . .


I had to break down and do a complete reformat/reinstall. . .the second complete reformat w/in 2 months. . .

I am NOT going to install SP1. . .it seems to slow things down a bit. . .I will see if I do not develop any problems now w/o it.
