Hi:

I was wondering when you do a System Restore should you do it in the Normal or Safe Mode? There was one time when I couldn't boot into the Normal Mode and I had to do a System Restore in the Safe Mode. It worked fine but if given a choice of doing a System Restore in Normal or Safe Mode is one way better than the other?

Also when doing a System Restore, should you uninstall your Anti Virus Program, or just disable it. I was once told by a Dell tech that you should uninstall your Anti Virus before doing a System Restore. I read a few articles on System restore and none of them mentioned anything about uninstalling or disabling Anti Virus Programs. I use Norton Antivirus 2001 if that might make a difference.

Thanks :)

I believe system restores can be initiated from normal windows. You obviously had some problem when you could only get to safe mode, otherwise, they make the system restores fairly user friendly. I can't think of any reason to uninstall your AV before doing a system restore, maybe someone else would know. You can always test that by trying a SR right after bootup in the morning without uninstalling your AV and seehow it goes.
