    Good morning, my first question, probably not my last though. I am running Windows xp, and as of two days ago i am unable to convince my pc to go to standby mode. I set the time for my wallpaper , then i set the time for standby, but for some reason, whatever i put in via POWER in the home/office configuration, my pc fails to go into standby mode, any suggestions please
    thanks.

    thanks for your reply, have not tried system restore as yet, have just downloaded regcure and xoftspyse and don't want any hassle with those programmes

    I suggest you lose REGCURE, because there it's going to cause a lot more hassle than system restore! I don't think much of xoftspyse either after seeing their site. It appears to consist mostly of hype and download links. I'm sure the pitch for your money comes right after the download. :)

    To be fair to Xoftspyse it was the only one which killed some malware I had a while ago, but I've found I have no use for it now or others like since I discovered Deep Freeze, now that's a real stonewaller.................
