yeah storing data on one of the partitions is normal, I dont think you can restore to new, all you can do is find the earliest restore point and do it to that, what I would try is, google the problem you are having and you might find a way to sort it out, if all fails then you would need to reinstall the operating system, in your case it could be windows xp or vista or whatever reinstalling will take it back to a new, but you gotta reinstall drivers and back up your data before doing it as it all gets deleted, hope this helps

thanks for help i tried googling but no help i not got Vista CD? Restore point does not go back far enough?

you need to get a vista cd or a recovery cd, TBH I have only ever reinstalled windows xp on my pc when I got a virus you definitely need a cd to reinstall vista im guessing you have got some sort of virus etc, goodluck with it hopefully someone more knowledgable will reply to you!
