    I have not been able to resolve my sound and messenger problems that occured
    after an update. However, when I go to system restore, it only goes back 5
    days and I need it to go back 6. Is there any way to restore to a point
    previous to the points they offer? Thanks.

  2. No. The data to do the system restore further back no longer exists..

  3. Nope. System Restore simply rolls back your system to how it was at a
    earlier point in time. If you want a Restore Point for May 15th and
    the latest one you have is May 16th, you're out of luck.

    Sorry, but no. If you would like to increase the amount of storag
    space used for System Restore for restore points so you can have more t
    select from later, then this tutorial will show you how to
