I wanted to make this my special post, as its my 1000, and encourage all members to use their System Restore more, I keep a system restore icon on
my desktop and make a restore point everyday, I know the computer is suppose to do it, but it makes me feel better, evertime I make drastic changes or questionable downloads I make a restore point, I simply type call it rp it only takes less than 10 seconds, if everyone did this we really could cut down on our
Tech Support. Have a good day.

I think you would have to ask on the Win '98 forum.

You could always use Go-Back though.

I keep all of my data on a separate data drive that is backed up every day, and my boot partition is imaged once a week. If I ever need to go back, I can put the image back in a few minutes, and the data is the same. This works for any version of Windows. :)
