RE: System Restore Wizard is already running.....
I spoke with Toshiba tech support. Was told that Vista isn't supposed to
make a System Restore point every 24 hours (which I believe isn't correct).
We did a "Last Known Good Configuration" and the SR Wizard stopped running.
I made a new SR restore point to reflect the return to "Last.....Good
Configuration" and now, again, when I click on "System Restore", I get
message saying that the SR Wizard is already running and that the program
will exit....which it does.
So...I really haven't gotten closer to a solution.....
LIFE IS GOOD!!
