    You have to use the security tab to add your user name to those allowed
    access. Read this:

    The System Volume Information folder is difficult to access for a
    reason. Make sure you know what you're doing.

    Why ? There's nothing in SVI that you should be mucking around with.
    If there are infected restore points, then you should *first* ensure the
    system is clean.
    Once that's done, disable System Restore to flush *all* restore points.
    Reboot.
    Reenable System Restore and create a *known clean restore point* now.

    disappear from " ccleaner " .

    There is really nothing fun to look at in the SVI folder when things
    are working properly. CCleaner has an option to remove RPs but you
    would have to tell it to do so (I believe).

    Do your RPs show up okay in the built in XP System Restore calendar
    function?

    To be on the safe side I would do this when you have the time and then
    periodically:

    Perform some scans for malicious software, then fix any remaining
    issues:

    Download, install, update and do a full scan with these free malware
    detection programs:

    Malwarebytes (MBAM): http://malwarebytes.org/
    SUPERAntiSpyware: (SAS): http://www.superantispyware.com/

    They can be uninstalled later if desired.

    Thanks Jose ,
    I first thought it might be spyware/malware
    and ran both of those programs with no
    luck .
    I do have a restore point in XP SR so I believe
    I should be O.K. .
    Thanks Again ,
    D.

    SR is a popular target for malware.

    The RPs should accumulate on your calendar. XP would like to make at
    least one new RP at least every 24 hours if the system is running and
    idle, so you may have one every day. You may go several days without
    one. You may have more than one a day depending on what is going on.

    You can also make one manually just to be sure that part works.

    Poor SR... - it is so misunderstood sometimes.
