    My Vista on a Gateway GT5422E was working great on Thursday, Oct. 25, 2007. On Friday, I had no sound at all. I had a few other minor errors also, i.e. ATI Radeon x1550 Catalyst Center will not work. My I-tunes, Windows Media Player or any sound do not work. I re-installed the Realtek Sound Drivers with no luck.

    I checked all Windows updates. I did notice that there was Windows Updates on Friday Morning (3 a.m.) which I cannot roll back. My restore does not work at all...says error 0X81000202 "cannot restore to an earlier date". I uninstalled with McAfees Tech support the entire virus/firewall suite, in case this was the problem, also with no luck. Any ideas? I need any help? I hope not to have to restore the the entire OS and lose the installed software/data.

    I think this maybe the same situation as a number of people. Linked to a MS Update?

    Also I just noticed that under "System" it no longer shows the information for my computer, i.e. Processor, RAM, etc.

    I appreciate any assistance.

    Jaycee, Thanks! That worked. I was able to restore before I think the updates? changed everything. I assume that it was an update as 2 MS updates occurred over that night.
    I appreciate the help!
