Solved System restore points deleted on xp, sp3

Microsoft Windows xp media center 2005

Specs: Windows XP, 2GHZ
Had this problem with XP, sp3 with Norton on an old HP Media Center-- tracked the problem to the recycle bin. Anytime "empty recycle bin" was selected, ALL restore points were deleted. All the usual “FIXES” were tried to no avail.

Later, after more investigation I found that by deleting the items in the r/c bin manually, the restore points were not affected. Also to do a restore on this HP system, the Norton Product Tamper Protection had to be turned OFF temporarily.

This message was brought to you by Norton Security:

"As Microsoft announced that they will no longer publish patches for Windows XP, these computers may become targets for cybercriminals, particularly if new vulnerabilities are discovered in the operating system. Depending on the nature of the threats involved, Windows XP may be susceptible to viruses and risks to which more recent iterations of Windows are immune. Due to this, we strongly recommend that you upgrade your Windows XP computer to a supported operating system as soon as possible."
