I have tried just about everything I can. Is there any new information
on this subject. I did put in a Maxtor Master drive.

Hi Sandy,

If you haven't yet tried stopping the System Restore service and then
turning System Restore back on, perhaps you could give it a try:

Go to Start>Run and key in:
services.msc
Click on OK or hit ENTER.

In the Services window, scroll down to System Restore Service, right-click
on it then select Properties. Use the drop-down picklist to change the
Startup type to Disabled, then click on Apply then OK. Close the Services
window. Now, right-click on My Computer, select Properties then System
Restore tab. There should be a checkmark in the checkbox beside "Turn off
System Restore on all drives".......click in the checkbox to clear the
checkmark, then click on Apply then OK.

**NOTE**
Performing the above will clear out all previous System Restore checkpoints
and create a new one when you restart the service.

It usually happens when upgrading boot partition using software that
ships with a few brands new hard drives.
Turn off system restore,restart the macine and again turn on the system
restore.
Though it will erase all the previous restore points but it will also
get rid of it.

Thanks. But there is no way that I can even get to the system restore
tab in my computer properties. Whenever I click on the tab, I get the
run dll as an app error message.

Do you still receive the error message when you try to get to the System
Restore tab AFTER you have Disabled the System Restore service as per my
previous instructions?

Well...I have to thank you for helping me. Finally, things are looking
better. Now I have only one more problem,
realtime:
Run-time error '429':
ActiveX component can't create object

Is there a particular application that you are attempting to access/use when
this error message occurs?

Hi Patti,

The only time the following error message occurs is when I first logon
on Windows XP Pro.
realtime:
Run-time error '429':
ActiveX component can't create object
I have not had any more of the first error message "run dll as an app"

Thanks,
Sandy
