Reversing System Restore in Vista
Hi,

I am using Vista and my computer detected a problem and automatically went
back to a very early restore point that I didnt want it to go to. I was
wondering if there was anything I could do to reverse that restore because
there was a program that I cannot get anymore installed then. Please help!!
Im realllly hoping that this can be restored! Thank you!

I've never seen Vista "automatically" start System Restore without
user input, and I never seen it recommend using anything but the
most recent restore point. You have to manually pick an older
restore point. If this actually happened the way you suggest, then
you probably need to reinstall Vista. Or do a "repair install".

Do you see any other restore points listed?

Copy/paste "rstrui.exe" into Start Search, press
enter. Allow any nag prompts that pop up.
You'll see "Recommended restore" already
checked. Below that is, "Choose a different restore point".
Check that and click "Next". What's listed there?

Hi Leenie,

Yes there is. System Restore has a undo the last restore option. This
tutorial will show you how to do it.
