    Today I decided to list some things on ebay and had to download their new Turbo Lister 2. My Turbo lister disappeared at that point along with all of the files/listings they said I would be able to transfer. :( They say that is not possible, but it is definitely gone as of that moment. Anyway, would a system restore back to this morning bring it back listings and all and if so, can anyone guide me on how to do it right? Thank you!! Kristi

    One of the great things about a system restore is that you can undo it if it doesn't solve your problem. Assuming you use XP, you should be able to do it by going to START, then HELP and SUPPORT. Look for UNDO CHANGES USING SYSTEM RESTORE and, hopefully, you have a restore point shortly before your problem began. Ideally, look for your last SYSTEM CHECKPOINT before the problem but if you make a lot of system changes, you want to find one nearest to the time your problem began (but BEFORE the problem). You may have to re-do certain things you did after the date and time of your restore point, but that's life. In the future, do what I do when I am about to install things or change files or basically make ANY system change, i.e., CREATE a restore point in case you need it. Good luck.
