Hi, I am using an e-machine which is running Windows ME. I went to do a system restore just to check out what it does and saw that it was disabled so I went to enable it, restarted the system, and after restarting went back to system restore just to see that it was once again disabled, does e-machine have to reconfigure something in order to enable system restore?

Hi, Firstly, some other kinds of backup software disable System Restore, - one program is called GoBack. If you use other backup software, there is a way to use System Restore as well, but it may drag your performance way down. I have run into users who have a lot of problems using ME's Restore feature, but will leave the finer points to some of our experts, who I hope reply to your post. You may simply have to try again with enabling Sys Restore, and create a Restore Point- this does use some room on the hard drive...which might be another problem- what shows for the free space on your drive C:?
