Manual Restore Point

June 16, 2009 at 16:40:51
Specs: Windows Vista
I would like to set a manuel restore point. When I use the create feature it asks for a description so I enter the date and time that I would like to restore to which is past the point that Vista shows as a standard reatore point. Today is 6/16/2009. I want to restore to 6/4/2009. I must not know how to enter the information as it does create a restore point but it doesn't actually restore to the point that I would like. HELP!!!

What do you want to do, set a restore point or roll your system back to an old restore point?

You are using the wrong window. There is a link to the Restore point you would like to restore to and one in which you can CREATE a restore point that you can restore to at a later time. One window will allow you to create a one line description of the point you are CREATING and the other will give you a list of points that have already been created and to which you can restore.

What I am trying to accomplish is to set my computer back before I installed Adobe Dreamweaver. I am having trouble with the program and I can't completely uninstall it. Adobe said that I have a windows problem.

I am using two sepearte windows. When I create a restore point it is shown in the window with the automatic restore points. The problem is that I type in the date and time that I want to restore to and the sytem shows that with the current date and then restores to the current date. I have no idea what I am doing wrong. After the new point is created there is no prompt to do anything with it. So I go to the list and it's there but it doesn't work.

Thanks guys for replying!

... give the restore point a "name" the date is put in anyway!

... info: Vista system restore There's (was) a check-box (to tick) to show other hidden points which this "pic" does NOT display!

utility creates a System Restore Point with no user intervention "click"

"What I am trying to accomplish is to set my computer back before I installed Adobe Dreamweaver"

From your description, you're attempting to CREATE a restore point. What you need to do is roll back to a point before Dreamweaver was installed.

When you get to the point " choose a different restore point "

the next tick the box show restore points older than 5 days .

if what you want is not there then that's it , for some people even that takes too much disc space , quite what they want this spare space for is indeed a point to ponder .
