    I have tried to restore my computer to a previous
    state from both the normal mode and the safe mode. It chugs along for
    at least 15 minutes and says it is restoring files and when XP boots
    up again into the normal mode it says that the restoration was
    incomplete and it says nothing was done to my computer. I have tried
    restoring my computer from at least 30 different restore points in
    the last 24 hours and nothing works.

    This is my system information.

    Antivirus programs and 3rd party firewalls will sometimes interfere with a
    successful System Restore. You can always try it in safe mode with command
    prompt:

    How to start the System Restore tool by using the safe mode option with the
    Command prompt in Windows XP http://support.microsoft.com/kb/304449

    This has worked for me when the normal routes have failed.

    Sometimes antivirus or security suites interfere with or disable System
    Restore. You didn't say what was wrong that made you feel you needed to do a
    System Restore. Care to share?

    What anti-virus application or security suite is installed and is your
    subscription current? What anti-spyware applications (other than Defender)?
    What third-party firewall (if any)?

    Has a(another) Norton or McAfee application ever been installed on the
    computer (e.g., a free-trial version that came preinstalled when you bought
    it)?

    I was using MAPLE 11 to solve a Classical Mechanics problem
    when a voltage spike caused the computer to go a bit wonky. I think
    lightening caused a spike in the phone line since the bell rang and
    possibly the power line too.
    Then Maple was not responding correctly( Did not respond to mouse
    clicks for menus and to close drop down windows) so I thought I would
    try to a system restore. This has worked before when a particular
    program was mis behaving.

    Hi.

    Try go to the safe mode menu and use the "Boot to last known-good
    configuration" options.
    This option won't allow you to pick what date to restore too however it
    will go back as far as it has to.

    What anti-virus protection are you using? I know that Norton Antivirus
    from Symantec has caused some issues with system restore in the past and
    turning protection OFF during the restore has been one solution.

    You could also check in event viewer and see if there is any hint of
    why the system restore is incomplete.
    Go to Start - Run and type eventvwr.msc and press enter.
    Click on Windows Log in the left pane then click on System.
    Click the gray title “Source” at the top of the source name
    column in the right pane to sort by source name, look for "sr" and
    "srservice".

    Ooo, not good. You should be using a surge protector/uninterruptible power
    supply anywhere lightning is likely. Does the machine run OK otherwise?
    (nothing fried?) If the machine is yours, I would try uninstalling and
    reinstalling the program. If the machine belongs to the University, I would
    have the IT department reimage it.

    As far as I can tell Maple 11 is the only thing that is mis behaving.
    Office 2007 is OK. Eudora is working. So is my Usenet client Forte
    Agent.
    BTW I have a whole house surge protector as well as individual
    protectors for my computer as well as my TV and HI-FI systems.
    It may well be that the spike had nothing to do with Maple, I don't
    know.
    BTW someone asked what Anti Virus software I am using. It was Norton
    and installed in September 2008, so whatever version was out then is
    what I have. I have the latest updates and definitions for it.
    I am also using the latest version of Zone Alarm Pro.

    I might have to re-install Maple 11. This could be a real pain,
    because I will probably have to get a new purchase code.
    A friend of mine got a new computer surplused the old one and tried to
    install Maple on the new one and the folks at Maplesoft gave him a
    bit of a hassle because they thought he was installing it on more that
    the allowed number of computers. (2) for a Personal Licenses.

    Turn off the antivirus and firewall before doing the System Restore. But I
    think it would be better to uninstall and reinstall the Maple software rather
    than do a System Restore, as long as only the Maple is affected. If you are
    reinstalling the software to the same computer, I can't see that Maplesoft
    would object to that.
