Windows 7: Restore point error

It's a toolbar called "tabs on top", its real handy. It is not going to the website where it gives that error, it is when I try to go back to my mail that it does it. It did it right after I wrote to you right before this one. It didn't do it for any of the sites you just told me to do. It's no big deal, just wonder why it does that. What do you want a picture of?

I don't need a picture.

I don't use that toolbar.

If you see that behavior ONLY at yahoo.com, then I assume it is either a Yahoo issue or an issue with that toolbar and may be beyond your control.

I have a yahoo email account and notice no strange behavior at that website.

You might try a post in the browsers section, but whatever you do, don't fiddle with the registry or services.

I think I have learned my lesson - won't fiddle with the registry or services. I cannot tell you how great you have been. Your patience is unbelievable and you have helped me so much. Thank you very much. Hopefully I won't screw things up for a while and need your assistance. Thanks again.

Back to the topic of this thread.

Have you actually done a System Restore since you did that repair install and moved to Service Pack 1??

If not, I would probably try it once to make sure it actually restores, rather than have the false feeling that it will bail me out when actually needed.

Make sure you restore to a point AFTER you installed Service Pack 1. If necessary, you could make a restore point and restore to it a few minutes later.

Hi - I backed up my data on my external hard drive using copy and paste. When I went to restore under the start menu, there was no backup there. It is probably on my external hard drive. So how do I do a backup so it goes on my internal hard drive so I can restore it? I went to backup and restore and it just showed my external hard drive. I am kind of confused about this now.

Ok, I feel dumb, all I had to do was highlight Drive C. Sorry to bother you.

I'm not sure what you are doing.

I was referring to doing a System Restore, which I thought was the purpose of this thread.

System Restore is accessed by typing System Restore in the start search box (among other ways).

You should see something like what is shown below.

Pick a restore point from the last 2 or 3 days since you installed Service Pack 1 and see if you can restore it.

Is that what you did? If it is not what you did, then you don't know if System Restore works or not.

After doing the repair install I lost all restore points. Have two that are window updates. I just did a restore now and will do another tomorrow and see if it works.
