I have XP Pro on a Dell. We recently added Small Business Server for a SQL application we have. Now My Computer will not launch for about 5 minutes. I can't right click at all to bring up properties, it too takes long. I discovered automatic restore points have not been created although it is marked to do so. I can not create a new restore point, I just get the hour glass for a while then it goes away and nothing happens.

I'm new here so please tell me if I'm doing anything wrong. I was glad to find the forum.
thanks!

turn restore off and then on again and see if windows creates a fresh restore point
restore may have become corrupted

I couldn't get to restore point at all so I went into safe mode. I turned off the system restore and then had to reboot to reset it. I lost my old restore points but I couldn't use them as it sat anyway. That also seemed to fix my MY Computer slowness problem, could that be?

looks like it,but don't have an explanation for it unless it was trying to restore when you rebooted
