    I have xp home with an ASUS motherboard. I'm having a problem with my system restore after I apply system restore it tells me that "restoration was incomplete". I've tried many diferent dates to go back to but it comes back with the same thing. Please help me.

    What precipitated the problem with System Restore? What went wrong that made you want to restore to an earlier date?

    System Restore is not a system backup. It is limited in its capabilities, and it won't tell you that it's not working correctly until you try to use it.
    Go to Start > Help and Support and read up on System Restore.

    Do you have Norton AV installed?

    Open the Norton Protection Centre.
    Select Antivirus tab
    Select Settings and scroll to the bottom
    Select Virus and Spyware Protection options under Additional Options
    On the right side select Miscellaneous (bottom)
    UNselect Turn on Protection for my Symantec Product
    OK your way out.

    Try System Restore now.

    Curious?

    Why did you mark it complete if you just read the Help and Support doc. In theory, system restore still doesn't work!
