So I have recently had a problem with popup's in that, they overtook my computer. None of my anti-virus programs detected a thread, so I had little choice, but to download firefox, and use it, ending all cpu eating popups at the source, via ctrl+alt+delete.


This crashed my desktop. I am now forced to browse programs. Which effectively destroys my ability to use the better system tools in my xp gui.


I've went to microsoft forums, but the links sited are useless, and don't lead me to any results.


Has anyone else had this issue?

Is there a way for me to repair my system w/o using my restore, and furthermore, how can I access system restore from my task manager.


PLEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEAAAAAAAAAAAAAAASE!!!!!!!!!!!!?????????????????

Why not just do a restore, it'll take 5 minutes, and it sets checkpoints like twice a week so it's no big dealio.

If you still have a windows disk you can do a repair of the OS, but at this point Id recommend reloading the OS completely.

I'm downloading all my improtant media onto my gig sticks right now, I don't have my os disc. How can I do a system restore manually (well, not totally manual) do you recall what the os refers to the system restore as? Or what file its in?

well if you dont have an XP disc then you have two options

1.) obtain an XP disc surreptiously
or
2.) buy a copy of windows vista


also: I never recommend restores because they are incredibly unreliable.

Thanks, I love these, makes the cp run smoother and fixes any false commands in the system.

Ha, hilarity ensues; NOW my symantec antivirus deletes threats, after malewarebyte finds them, of course.


Useless, stock program.

Poo indeed.




On a lighter note, springy, you program suggested that I reboot. Upon doing so, my old old pals, the desktop icons greeted me, all 30 of them. Its nice to see my toolbar as well.




Much obliged.

+1 some programs will start to ###### about... well nothing really, but just refuse to work after a restore. The only restore that works is a image restore, but making images is something you should've done when the system was working. Was this post helpful ? I doubt it.

Restore is bad if you don't know when the problem occurred...or if it is an efficient bug...
