I tried to insert a card making CD and it screwed things up.I wanted to go back to the 26th and it would not do it.When I clicked on that date nothing happened.
Thank you Minime

Ok when you say screwed things up can you describe it to me please.

More ?'s for you.
Do you have a Factory Restore or Recovery CD?
Can you get to your desktop when you turn it on?

You may want to backup all your personal files ASAP just to be safe.
I can't help you with the restore thing if it wont let you go back.

Could it be that you did not have a restore point done on the 26th? If not, then go to a date before the 26th and restore that date. BTW, the dates that have a restore point will be in darker print---the date that is.
Good luck.

The date it was fouled up was the 27th.Any date that I tried before that(the 26th being only one of them)will not work.
