    I looked through some archives for my needs and I am not really seeing anything specific to my issue.
    If you have a link to previously posted I will use it (y) if not, I kindly am asking for help.:D
    Trying to do a system restore on my machine and it wont let me go back any farther than 12-2010
    Is there a way to go back father into the year?
    I need to restore at least 6 months behind today's date.

    You can only restore back that far if you have restore points for that time.

    thanks for the speedy reply Doublehelix(y)
    so bummed about this though.
    I have a corrupt registry issue and cannot use a device due to this and had installed the software over a year ago.
    SO I am either out this device (Flipvideo camera) OR..I reinstall Windows XP?:confused:
    Any thoughts?

    You'll have to provide more information such as what the software is, what any error messages are, what the device is, etc.
