    I can't get system restore to work - whatever day I choose. Will not
    restore. Will not cancel.

    If you follow that article through it eventually leads you to a message that
    says System Restore is dependent on - guess what - yup - you have guessed
    right - RCP!

    I loaded and ran Stinger a while back also loaded patch.

    I am beginning to come to the inescapable conclusion that the best thing is
    to start all over again. What do you think?

    reinstall...

    make sure you have seperate partitions for OS, data, and ideally swap and
    temp.
    when you have everything nice and perfect then ghost the damn thing to avoid
    the pain of having to reinstall again...
