Restore



How is the best way to restore to an earlier date ? I used to do it some years ago and it used to do it in about 15 minutes ,now if I put in search box (restore) it go's on for about 6 hours and the only way to stop it is to press the off button and hold it in until it shuts down.

Stopping a process like that whilst it is working is the surest way to corrupt you system files, the reason I put you onto system scan was with it being a winsock problem, Win stands for Windows and obviously sock for socket and these are usually found in the DLL library of system 32 on the hard drive
and the sfc/scannow would have sorted out any corrupt files you may have done with stopping processes whilst still in use.jmb
