    Thre is no system infor to add as I am not using the laptop that has the problem. I have a Toshiba laptop with Windos 7 installed. It is having several problems, but the one I need help with is that it will not create a restore point and there does not seem to be a way to restore it to an earlier date. It says to restore it totally I need the Windows 7 disc which are no longer sold with the computer. I did make several discs as a back up, but I am not a computer whiz and don't know if I would do more harm than good it I reinstalled the info from the backup. Would the Windows 7 operating system be on the backup and any ideas on how to install it? Thanks for any advise.:(

    I can't speak to the unknown problems which you allude but to create a restore point, the simplest way to direct you is to push START and under the search line type Create Restore Point; that will take you directly into naming and creating the Restore Point

    Thank you for helping, but I have created several restore points in that way, waited a day or two then tried to use that restore point, just to make sure it worked but my computer then says there are no restore points at all. With Windows 7 I can't find where I can restore it back to the factory settings without having a physical windows 7 cd. Thanks again
