Hi George.

I got it. What was happening was that VISTA was searching for drives, so the box was blank for a while. I was just a little impatient..

I think I prefer the XP facility better.  It seemed easier.

I've got 2 drives one is called drive D and the other is HP. In each of these I only have one restore point and that was early July. They must have been created automatically. So if I cannot resolve my problem I'll need to go back to factory settings. Got this computer out of PC World and with no disks, so to recover back to factory settings there must be a keystroke. I think it used to be F11. Hope I don't need to go down that path though.

Anyway, I'll save your notes on how to turn Restore on or off in a save place on my computer.

Thanks again for your help.

Very best wishes.
Andy.

Hi Andy,

I'm writing this while looking at the System Protection tab.

You cannot be reading the whole dialog so you may need to
turn your screen reader cursor and explore.

About half way down is a section called "Automatic Restore
Points".  In that it says, "Create restore points
automatically on the selected disks:"

Immediately below that is a two column list headed
"Available Disks" and "Most recent restore point"

Your hard drives should be listed below "Available Disks",
and against each drive is a check box which allows you to
select which drives you want to create restore points for.

Below all that is a button labelled "Create" which lets you
manually create restore points if you wish.

Hope that helps.

George.

Hi George.

Thanks for that.  I followed your instructions and ended up
at System
Protection, but all I come across in there is a box asking
"How much disk space is required".  I still cannot find
anything concerning
turning the Restore function on or off.  Am I doing
something wrong?

Very best wishes.
Andy.

Hi Any,

My sincere apologies.  It's the "System Protection" Tab,
not
the "Advanced" tab you need to look at.

So, Control Panel, System, Advanced System Settings, then
System Protection Tab.

Sorry again.

George.

Hi again George.

I followed your instructions and got to Start up and
Recovery settings but
still cannot see anything about turning the Restore
function
on or off.

Can you please check once again on your system to see if
I'm
near target.

Best wishes.
Andy.

Control Panel: System: Advanced Settings.  Navigate to
the
Advanced tab in Advanced Settings and hopefully you'll
find
it all there.

Hi George.

I sorted my problem last night, but did what you
suggested
me do this
morning.  I typed  System Restore and although I did get
to
the system
restore facility, I still could not see a box to turn it
off
or on.  I'm
pursuing this as I really wish it to be turned on.

Best wishes.
Andy.

Press the Windows key.  You should then be in the Search
Box.  Type "System Restore" (without the quotes), and
press
enter.

George.

Hi John.

Thanks for your assistance but I'm using VISTA.  Sorry,
I
should have made
that clear in my message.  I think that VISTA in many
instances is very
similar to XP, just that everything's in different
places.

Thanks again.

Andy.

Hi Andy, I can answer one of those, assuming you're
running XP.
 To turn off system restore do the following:
 Go into control panel and press the letter s six times
till you get to
system. Press enter on it. You'll be placed on the
general
tab. With your
right arrow key move through the tabs till you get to
the
system restore
tab and press tab to open the system restore page. You
will be on a check
box the says "turn off system restore on all drives".
Check the box. You
will get a message asking you if you're sure. Click ok.
The computer will
then reboot with the new setting.
 If you have any problems let me know.
                   John.

Windows Mail


Hi all.

I've been unable to delete a number of messages from
Windows Mail.  I
visited my message store and deleted the store as well
as
my in-box, but
on re-boot, JAWS announces Microsoft Mail, Storage
Recovery, and gives me
all the messages back.  I've attempted to delete these
messages a number
of times, but they just keep on multiplying.

A list member from Blind VISTA advises me to turn
Windows
Restore off,
undertake the task, then turn it back on again.

I've a couple of questions;

1.  Can anyone tell me how to turn Windows Restore
off.
2.  Can anyone tell me how to delete and re-install
Windows Mail, and
3,  Can anyone shine any light on why when I want to
delete a message,
Windows is saying, "An unknown  error has occurred"

Fingers crossed that someone can come up with the
answer.

Thanks in advance.

Best wishes.
Andy.
