My friend had Wormguard (she's not very technical) and it flagged system restore - she quarantined it. However, after that she uninstalled Wormguard. Now she has no restore file (rstrui.exe) - how can we get a "restore exe file"? I tried to copy my version of rstrui.exe (we both have same versions of XP), but that wouldn't work either - sometimes it does absolutely nothing, and once in a great while, if we try to run it from the start-command line, it pops up its dialog box, but empty. I tried to do the sfc /scannow thing, but it says something about the wrong version - I just completedly reformatted her system about a month ago with that CD - it's her original XP home CD. Any suggestions? It seems to be running when I check under the computer management box, and it seems to be making the restore points in their appropriate place, but I can't seem to find a way to activate it if we need to do a restore? PS If someone could email me with this answer, I would greatly appreciate it - ~snipped~ @together.net or IM me at ~snipped~ @hotmail.com. Thanks so much.
