Is your harddisk light still burning or flickering so there's activity? See you some animation on your screen? look carefully!

Please wait till finished!

All restore operations take place in 1 transaction. So it succeeds or is automatically rollbacked on startup. It least that's the way it should work.
Thanks for replying. There is still animation etc, it logged off and is now on the Please wait initializing stage. It's been on that screen for a while, a lot longer than 15 minutes lol. Only put it back to a restore point created on Wednesday so hardly any difference. Is there no safe way to get out of it now?

Searching other forums, this is the vista equivalent of the stage I'm stuck on;
It's only initialzing so not actually started... whatever microsoft meant by that.
Not sure in what state it's now. Maybe it already broke your computer. I don't think so btw.

Did you ever succesfully perform a "system restore"?
Yeah, surely it should actually be restoring now and have past this step? It's been doing it for a lot longer than I would of thought it should. And a succesful restore has been done before.
