Thanks. I did restore but something was incomplete now leaving me without some functions. I'll call my computer guy Monday. Thanks for the help.

System Restore on Windows 7 works but only if enough memory is assigned for it.

What do you mean Martin?I have 8 GB ram but I don't know how it will be handled in case of a restoration?

My mistake, J-C.

A rule of thumb is that System Restore needs an allocation of at least 5-10% of your total disk space.

Ok Martin:I have 2 TB on one side(desktop),just half of it is occupied and 620 KB with the laptop but I try to not use this space and I use 2 external hd with the laptop(1TB and 2TB),so,I guess I am safe for this parameter.

Yes, you have plenty of free space. But you had better check that your settings
are adequate. This page shows how to do it. I mention this because shortly after
I bought my present PC, I tried to Restore to a previous time/date. I couldn't do it.
When I investigated, I found that not enough space had been allocated.
