    I have a problem with System Restore, I hope you have a solution for me.
    Everything else on my PC works well.

    I can create a Restore Point OK, but I can NOT return to ANY selected Restore Points.
    When I start the process of trying to restore my PC to any previous Restore Point, it starts off doing the right things but when it gets to the please wait Initializing Stage, it hangs forever.

    I can't move the mouse cursor or perform any function at all, not even Ctrl/Alt/Del.
    My only option is to reboot and with that reboot, the message Unable to Restore PC.

    I have performed the System File Checker with no errors reported.
    I have tried a System Restore from Safe Mode with no luck.
    I have turned OFF System Restore, re-booted, then turned ON System Restore, no luck.
    I have turned OFF Anti-Virus and Firewalls, no luck.

    Please HELP if you can, I have spent countless hours on the Web searching for a solution, I don't think my eyes can take it any more.

    PS.
    Operating System - Windows 7 Ultimate, 32bit.
    i7 Intel Quad core processor.
    4GB Ram
    2 - 460 GTS Evga Video Cards in SLI mode.

    Thanks for the input but I have nothing NORTON on my PC.
    I can't think what might be causing the problem, I'll keep researching the web for a resolution.
    Thanks again.
    Regards.
