I am running XP Pro

I foolishly delated most entries in the Recycler (not the recycle) folder believeing that they were old restore points. Now, when I check "My computer Properties", there is no tab for system restore (I am logged in with admin properties) - When I try to acces sytem restore on helyp I get "procedure entry point could not be located in WINSTA.dll.

Further upon logging in to my account, on most days I get a dialogue box saying that the sytem needs to replace files that have become corrupt and I have to insert Win XP disk.

Any suggestions? Thanks very much!

Have you replaced the files by doing this? If not, I suggest that you do before trying anything else first. This may be the solution you need.

Thanks very much to all!!

I did reinstall Windows SP1 (as per Mysweetbippy) and it worked - I now have system restore back. The only problem is now Windows seems to run slowly from startup to running apps etc.

Charlie - I'm not sure what your command line solution was going to do - that was next on my list altho as a prudent user, I was going to try to ascertain exactly what we were trying to do.

Tx again

That command was going to reinstall system restore on your system without reformatting....:D
