Hi jean220,

 

Firstly, System Restore is located (in Win XP) in Start > Programs > Accessories > System Tools > System Restore

 

However, it is used for recording your PC's system state (registry entries etc) before any changes are made, rather than simple text files like cookies, so you would not be able to recover a cookie using System Restore.

 

Hopefully, in your AAW 2007 Free, you chose under Settings > Auto Scans the option to "Quarantine objects prior to removal":

This places any items that you delete into a Quarantine folder, from where it can be recovered in need. Look under Scan > Quarantine & Ignore:

Select the Quarantined objects (in this case cookies) that you require and click on Restore. Then re-scan and in the scan results under Privacy Objects, choose the wanted Cookies and put them into "Ignore:

That way, whenever you scan in future, theses cookies won't be detected again.

 

Unfortunately, if you have not quarantined them, the cookies are gone for good - you will have to refer to any emails/printouts with your Yahoo Mail login data to access it again (or use whatever online facilities Yahoo Mail has for retrieving your login data for you).

 

Regards,

 

Spike

Hello ror,

 

Check to make sure that System Restore is turned on in your settings - navigate to Start > Settings > Control Panel > System and select the "System Restore" tab.

If it is turned on already, what happens when you run it by itself (ie: not from within AAW 2007). If you haven't put a shortcut on your desktop, you can find it at Start > Programs > Accessories > System Tools > System Restore.

 

Open the program and try and create a new Restore Point as at today's date:

Select "Create a restore point" and "Next":

 

System_Restore__5_.gif

 

If you want give the restore point a name (eg: B4 AAW 2007 Scan etc) then "Create":

 

Does it work, or do you get another error message?

 

Regards,

 

Spike
