    I run Vista on an HP Desktop. This morning when I turned on the PC most of the desktop icons disappeared and all on my documents were gone also. I tried to do a restore and received a message "The writer experienced a transient error 0800423F3".

    Any help in resolving this issue would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks.

    How did you attempt the restore? Did you boot into a Vista DVD and select the restore option? Or did you press a function key and attempt the HP-provided restore function?

    I used the System Restore program in the Accessories folder then System tools.
