I found out it means my operating system files are now mis figured and that can be critical- also adding that I can download programs that will fix them in a few easy steps-if I would like to pay.
Which then took me to a site called 'Just Ask' - so I did. They wanted $39.00 for
answering my question. So I came back here and asked???

First point is (and I'm sure you know this) is never to pay money to sites that offer to fix errors like this

I can't really see how system restore could cause this and like AddRAM mentions the error seems related to Microsoft "outlook" which is related to Microsoft office. Do you have Office and Outlook installed ?

System restore is reversible if you felt you wanted to try that. You just pick the most recent restore point.

Did you fix the libraries problem ?

Hello again Mooly.
I don't have outlook-that I know of -I uninstalled microsoft office a long while ago because I never used it.I wanted go back and see if I could undo what I did, but some of the links in my control panel don't work now and one of them is recovery.

Pleased to hear the libraries issue is fixed

I don't really know what to suggest for the other error.

Does it come up with this error code if you just reboot the PC and use it normally ? Have you tried running system restore again but this time picking the most recent date ?

When you uninstall programs they don't always fully remove themselves (that's a common problem) and I wonder if doing a system restore has restored the registry and so on back to a time when you had Office installed and so there is some error in that it is looking for some files that don't now exist. I'm just guessing on that but doing another restore seems the next step to me.

Hello Mooly.
Yes, when I reboot my system the error message displays. Some of my desk top gadgets are gone - like my clock,calendar and windows media center. I went to my control panel to see if I could undo what I did, but now some of the links don't work-one of them is the recovery link. I can't get back in. boohbah is suggesting that I do a sfc scan. I did not have many restore points to choose from at the time I did the system restore. I am thinking maybe it is the restore point I chose-which said critical update because it was at a point when my libraries were normal.

You seem to have a lot of unrelated issues going on here. There is no harm in using system restore to try different points in time and you can do this as often as you want.

The file checker boobah mentioned is worth running.

If the worst comes to the worst it might be worth doing a factory reset which brings all back to day one. How that is done is model specific. You lose everything but end up with an as new PC so save all your personal files first if you do this.

The best insurance against disasters is a program such as Acronis True Image which allows you to make disk images quickly and as often as you want. If you use something like that daily then you are never more than 24 hours from a working image.

You can then try stuff and mess things up as much as you want knowing you can go back.

As to fixing all your current issues. It really is something that you need to be sat behind to see exactly what is going on.

If you have a W7 install disc then you can do a W7 repair,
