I agree with rbmrtn, do the restore first before driving yourself crazy. Go to your system tools, its easy to reset to a date prior to when you first noticed the problem.

I never did any system backups so I don't see that I have a "restore" copy to use.

I often don't do upgrades (Firefox et al) for months because some times there are issues and I wait for the bugs to be worked out. Lately I have gotten brave or foolish (a while back I had FF ver 6 or 7 and they were on 11 or 13 and someone chastised me elsewhere for not having the browser up to date but I did not like some of the new features and went back to whatever ver I had) so now I trust FF and just do them.

I should not say this but since my last post this shockwave crash has not occurred. Guess I just jinxed myself saying this but maybe the ver 12 corrected things. I'll know for sure this weekend as I'll watch 2 tv shows from Europe that used to be easy to watch that in addition to email loading were cashing shockwave to crash.

Thanks for the links, I'll keep all this in mind if I need to uninstall and I'll look at that online SS course. My SS is doing what I want and I may never need to do another but it was fun, sorta.

Frequently-released new versions all too often exchange one set of quirks/bugs for another. Just gimme a browser that works and does not need to be patched monthly or even weekly.

System restore is not done from a backup that you made. The system restore feature is done automatically ( usually ) when system changes are made by creating a restore point. Broken software installations is one of the things it was designed to fix, and one of the better components windoze has.

  • Navigate to the Start -> All Programs ->Accessories -> System Tools program group.
  • Click on the System Restore program icon.
  • Choose the Choose a different restore point radio button and then click Next >.
