but back up first.I read this in a computer magazine on how to fix System Restore.
Go Start > Run > type in Regedit > hit Enter / Return. Go to HKEY_Local_Machine\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\VxD\VxDMon. You should find an entry DelayFirstRstpt. Double Click it then change the value from 1 to 0. Close regedit and restart.
Windows Q&As.. ME wont create restore points.. Briefly you need a ME Start up disc (Obtain from Add/Remove Progs).Insert in A Drive.start PC. When offered choice of start up options select minimal boot no4. When the Command Prompt a:> appears type the following lines carefully observing spaces, and press enter key after each line c:attrib -r -s -h_ restore ren _restore oldrest Remove Flpoppy and restart PC. Windows will create a new restore directory which you can check if you open your C drive in My Computer. You will see in the both_Restore and Oldrest folders. Delete the Oldrest folder. Good luck.
