First of all, is System Restore turned on??
Goto Control Panel, then System, then System Restore Tab. Untick it if it's ticked. Then set the limit to a higher amount.

When you say "the system restore is switched on", do you mean there is a TICK there or not?

there is no tick in the box,i have 8.71gb free space on hard drive as well
