    My system restore points are erased every 24, 48 or 72 hours. It appears to be random. I use XP home edition. I use XPfire wall. I use McFee & it is updated automatically. I have 60 Gig of free space on my hard drive. I have checked for a virus with both McAfe & Stinger. No virus detected

    One last 'obvious' question :rolleyes: .... the restore points removed are from an earlier date[other than recently], or all restore points?

    Is the disk being defragmented by yourself or by a program? I've done it once and lost all restore points.
