Default Ok the System Restore

My system restore works, but I've had to use it twice in 3 days otherwise I
can't get on line. Is there an underlying problem making this happen? I
have plenty of space on the hard drive and have cleaned off all the junk I
can. My modem looks as though it works fine. Any suggestions? Thanks

the case then as a first step I would undo any changes you made - most
good registry cleaners backup keys and values they remove from the

If that doesn't help have a look at the two following KB articles as they
might help get system restore back working and visible. See MS KB
