The problem James has described is this;
After a reboot, ALL restore points are erased, no matter what he's done
previously. He's not restoring to an earlier point and losing restore
points, he's simply restarting his computer.
I'll look into other possible causes, but I'm still leaning toward something
writing to the disk prior to Windows taking over the disk access chores,
this is most often the culprit for this.
