Unfortunally, the only option is to live with it or reformat the hdd and reinstall Windows XP. If you want to save your data. I would suggest buying a new hdd, buy a new copy of windows from newegg, install it, then hook up your old hdd and transfer your old data to the new hdd and you have yourself a new computer and more storage space
I do know what you mean by not being able to do a full restore, I tried and could only go back maybe 5 months from the current date I was trying to restore another one of my computer in my home. If you want a "new" computer, your best bet would to do what I said above.
Hope this helps
