    Hi...
    Whenever I go to System Restore, there are no restore points. I've checked the settings and it is enabled. It allows me to manually create a restore point, but it's not making them on a regular basis like it should...not when I get a Windows update or install new software. Does anyone have any ideas?

    I'm also having a problem with some screen savers not having smooth animation...they work, they're just a little "jerky". I bought the "Plus" add-on pack for XP and those are the ones that don't run smoothly.This even happens on a fresh boot, so it's not a memory problem. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks.

    My computer is only about a year old and it has never had a virus or any other serious problems.

    I have a Dell/2.53G/P4/512 ram/60 GB HD/WinXP home SP1/NVIDIA GeForce4 MX420/Dell 1998 CTR monitor/Norton AV 2003
