    Hello



    My system restore fails every time I attempt it. This has happened the last 3 times I had a need to attempt restore. (Three attempts separated by months in time, about different issues.) This time, I am thinking something may be wrong with my system restore function.



    In this case, it is simply a matter of trying to roll back a browser update.



    I saw a whole list of available restore points, and I went to the second one back - from only a few days ago. The restore failed.



    I am using Windows Vista Home Premium, OEM from Gateway Laptop about 1.5 yrs old. I allow most updates.



    Any Suggestions? Thanks.

    Solution:



    The problem was caused by Norton NIS 2009.



    The problem was resolved by the following steps:



    Go into Settings - Miscellaneous Settings - Product

    Security and turn off 'Norton Product Tamper Protection'.



    Then System Restore worked.
