    Default system restore not working after install of 8.0.400.020

    Using XP with service pack 3.
    I have just re-installed v. 8.0.400.2083.00 and once again System restore no longer works.
    It was for this reason that several months ago I reverted to v.7.0.483 and system restore worked again. I thought I would give v.8 another go but the problem has re occurred. I have tried turning system restore off and then on again but no go.
    Could anyone kindly point me in the right direction as I am not what you might call an expert user. If necessary I suppose I shall have to go back to v.7 again.
    Thank you

    Try it in Safe Mode and see if it restores now.

    Note: An UNDO restore point will not be automatically created when System Restore is run in Safe Mode. To have a current restore point to fall back on, create a manual restore point in normal mode before entering Safe Mode.

    Have a nice Day

    Thank you. Yes it works OK in Safe Mode. Is there a way to make it work in ordinary mode? I guess it means altering some setting or another? (groan groan) Thank you for your help, at least in a emergency I know I can use it.
    Regards

    Your Welcome

    I ran it in ZoneAlarm Security Suite version:8.0.298.035 a few times in regular mode and it restored.

    Have not been able to Restore under ZoneAlarm Security Suite version:8.0.400.020.Tried a few times so I restored in Safe Mode.Works for me.So not a real issue.

    7.0.483.000 was never an issue for me.Always worked.

    I would advice to stay with 8.0.400.020, just use Safe Mode.

    Just remember an UNDO restore point will not be automatically created when System Restore is run in Safe Mode. To have a current restore point to fall back on, create a manual restore point in normal mode before entering Safe Mode.

    I if get in real trouble I'll restore from image backup from external drive using Acronis True Image.

    Have a nice Day

    Thank you, at least I now know that I can get it to work in Safe mode if I really need to so I guess I'll stick with version 8.

    Why are computers such fiendishly awkward things!
