    Can anyone tell me if there exists a direct way to get to the system
    restore points in Windows XP.

    I have a system which had a failed install. After the install, the
    task bar is gone, the users cpl comes up blank, ctrl-esc does not
    work.

    I can not find a link to the help and support center. I think if I can
    get the system restore interface to run, I should be able to bring the
    system back to a usable state. I just do not know what command to run
    to bring the restore program up.

    Thanks in advance for any help.

    Nope, you need to use the System Restore interface.
