Restore Points Are Not Saved in System Restore
Restore Points Are Not Saved in System Restore - Windows Millennium Edition
When you start the System Restore utility, and then click Restore my computer to an earlier time, you may notice that restore points are no longer listed in the calendar. This includes restore points that you created manually and system checkpoints that are automatically created by Windows Millennium Edition (Me). Restore points are not saved in System Restore.
NOTE If you have a version of McAfee Safe & Sound installed on your computer that is earlier than version 4.00.1034.0.
1. Check to see if your System Restore is turned on.
If the answer is Yes then follow the steps below
Upgrade your version of McAfee Safe & Sound to version 4.00.1034.0.
To work around this issue, use the System Configuration Utility (Msconfig.exe) to remove McAfee Safe & Sound from the Startup group on your computer.
NOTE: When you use this procedure, the McAfee Safe & Sound backup is turned off.
1. Click Start, and then click Run.
2. In the Open box, type msconfig, and then click OK.
3. Click the Startup tab.
The Startup tab lists items that load during Startup from the Startup group, Win.ini load= and run=, and the registry. You can select the configuration files that you do not want to load when you restart the computer.
4. Click to clear the McAfee Safe & Sound check box, and then click OK.
5. When you receive the message that asks if you want to restart your computer, click Yes.
NOTE: In some cases, it may be necessary to completely remove McAfee Safe & Sound from your hard disk.
Personally I'd get Norton Internet Security

More About System Restore
The System Restore utility in Windows Me automatically records changes made to Windows system files and to the registry. You can use System Restore to restore your system to a point in time when your computer was known to function correctly. You can also create your own restore points, which may be useful when you are uncertain of how a change to your system, such as installing a new program or device drivers, will affect the overall performance of Windows.
