View Full Version : System Restore

13-03-2004, 10:09 PM
Start/Programs/accessories. Tools & Maintainance has disappeared, due to too many geeks (grandchildren) messing with my machine (running ME). I can find elsewhere de-frag and scan disc. But due to the afore mentioned geeks I rely heavily upon System Restore. Can anyone help; other than ridding me of the geeks.

Go to The drive where the windows folder is. Enter the "System32" folder and then locate the folder called "Restore" and enter it. You should see a file called "rstrui". Right click it and then click "Send To" >> "Desktop (create shortcut)" to add a shortcut to your desktop.

This should work as long as you don't press delete instead.

Might help to make various things "Read Only". That way they'tdhave to try harder. ;-)

Try clicking on / start / help / on the left you will see Fix a Problem / System Restore

My thanks for all your replies - and so fast. I'll try each; the 'read only' sounds a good idea. Thanks again
