    could you provide more
    information?

    basically, the restore
    point is supposed to be
    located on the right side

    however, not sure how to
    envision your description
    of it popping up every
    5 minutes.

    are you saying that the
    description of the restore
    point disappears and
    reappears?

    All Bear did was to make a disconnected *copy* (cf) of the OP's post from
    this group in Usenet to a forum. PA Bear makes UNSOLICITED moves
    (redirects) of posts a lot. Because he's a moderator (actually a site
    admin) for a forum, he thinks he has the same rights in Usenet; however,
    while moving posts around in his forum is within his purview, here in Usenet
    that is trollish behavior. As typical of Bear, he either SHOVES someone
    else's thread into a different group or forum (before the solution is known
    so it is NOT known if that is the appropriate group/forum and the
    unsolicited move is based on his personal biases), or he swamps them with a
    barrage of questions usually across multiple posts (dragging them by the
    nose) without offering any help up front despite that much of what he
    requests is not required or reasonable guesses could be inferred to offer
    help without having to first wade through Bear's maze of prompts.

    Getting help from Bear is like phoning for tech support and getting stuck
    having to wade through the voicemail prompts and where you might end up with
    your discussion somewhere other than where you selected. Here's a prime
    example of Bear shoving someone to somewhere else.

    "repeating every 5 minutes"

    Since a calendar is presented for you to select from which day to select a
    restore point, are you saying that there are 288 entries for the same event
    listed for each day?

    Have you yet tried rebooting into Windows' Safe Mode, logging in, rebooting
    into Windows' normal mode, and logging in to check if these restore points
    are still getting repeatedly generated?

    Have you rebooted into Windows' Safe Mode, logged in, and then monitored if
    these restore points still get repeated generated?

    If you don't need a restore point (which you probably don't have one that
    you want since the old useful ones would've rolled out of the queue by now),
    have you tried turning off the System Restore service which flushes all the
    restore points and restarting it to see if the repeat events still occur?

    When did you install the HP device and/or its accompanying software? Did
    that installation finish okay? You sure that you installed the Windows XP
    version of its driver or software (and not for some other version of
    Windows)? Yet tried unplugging the device to see if the events (restore
    points) stop getting generated?

    When was the last time you updated your anti-malware and did a full scan of
    your host?

    Thank you for your information.

    First of all, I went to :

    Start/Accessories/System Tools/System Restore/Next

    and I found to Windows:

    The left window is like a calendar with a highlighted date(s).

    The right window:

    SUNDAY,FEBRUARY 14, 2010

    First Line:
    7:00:01 AM etc. etc
    7:02:15 AM etc. etc
    7L04:12 AM etc. etc

    and keep repeating while the computer is on, during the whole day and every
    day.

    No deletions.
    The following day is the same thing.

    I tried in Safe Mode.
    I turned off and on the System Restore.

    The "complete clean install" was done with the advise of Dell on February 6,
    2010, using the F12 key and deleting the harddrive partion.

    On February 7, 2010 I installed the HP Officejet J3680 printer.

    The Microsoft Windows Live OneCare was installed on February 7, 2010.

    Last night I uninstalled the printer. And I created 4 "Restore Points" .

    I am waiting to see if I can get and automatic "System Checkpoint".

    Did a Norton or McAfee free trial come preinstalled on the computer when you
    bought it?

    What are you smoking? The abbreviation "cf," does not mean "copies
    furnished": http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Latin_abbreviations

    No, all Bear did was cite a reference to OP's nearly identical post in
    a forum where he just so happens to have Admin and Moderator
    privileges.

    From said referenced post, one can click on OP's profile and find OP's
    posting history so that one might get some background on OP's earlier
    problems which might shed some light on OP's current problem.

    I will add that same posting history will show that I and many other
    volunteers have spent a considerable amount of time assisting this OP
    in the past.

    One will also note that OP made no mention of having done a "complete
    clean install" in her first post in either thread nor has she yet told
    us why a "complete clean install" was necessary.

    The "complete clean reinstall" was help by the Dell specialist, with CD-ROM
    #3 (as I received #1, #2 and #3 from Dell).

    I tried in SAFE MODE with the same results, kept repeating.

    The printer was installed completely.

    Last night I uninstalled the printer.

    Then I checked System Restore and the "every so often messages" did not
    appear.

    Last night I created 4 "System Checkpoints".

    Today I do not have any System Checkpoint. (13:10 P.M.)

    Thank you once again for your valued help.

    Restore points are not saved at periodic intervals. SOMETHING has to
    initiate the generation of a restore point, like you doing a manual save or
    a program doing it.

    If the System Restore Service is not running (which would likely mean it was
    not configured for Automatic startup) then it can't be doing anything, like
    saving restore data points. If you disabled the System Restore option on a
    hard drive (they can be configured separately) then no restore data points
    get saved for that drive.


    services.msc
    Is the "System Restore Service" running (started)?
    Is it configured for Automatic startup?

    Control Panel -> System applet -> System Restore tab
    Is it enabled (monitoring) on whatever drives you want it enabled?

    Restore points require disk space. How much is free for the OS partition's
    drive? You can't create files if there is no room for them.

    Probably means you left Automatic Updates configured for automatic download
    and install of updates whenever Microsoft decides they want to push them
    onto your host. Is a variable state determined by someone else how you want
    your host managed (i.e., managed by someone else)? Configure Automatic
    Updates to only *notify* you of updates and then decide if and when to
    install which ones (select a custom update rather than their express update
    to see just what they want to push onto your host).

    So what? I asked you a question and nothing in your reply even vaguely
    resembles an answer to it.

    Good luck.

    I solved the problem.

    I uninstalled/reinstall the printer and the system restore is working fine.

    Thanks to all of you for your help.
