    If the system restore utility wont let me choose a date in the past from an interactive calander,then how can I restore the operating system back to day one, other than reload the disk? Is there a way to scan the restore function for viruses?:confused:

    Most antivirus programs already do scan the restore points. It seems you have a laptop. There may be a recovery partition, which can restore your computer to out-of-box condition. Usually, there is a key you need to press during boot to activate the recovery partition. You might see instructions as you boot. Or you can check your manual. On 1 netbook, I found that the recovery partition has to be activated by clicking on a program. But I think that is rare.
