System Restore does not work in Windows ME

I attempted to restore some weeks ago and found that no Restore points had been made for several weeks (used to be every day).Since then I have manually made several but when attempting to use them it aborts, reboots and then advises my system has not been restored (no other info!) I have re-installed ME and gone through Troubleshooting in Help but to no avail. Can anyone help?

This is what usually occurrs with ME restore, it makes a restore point which either dissappears or is unusable. It is probably easiest to turn system restore off and make backups using an alternative method.

which might provide some help. Typing system restore into Google throws up lots of help sites. : }

Thanks Joe C. The first patch did the trick. This knocks out all previous restore points but as they did not work it does not matter.
I understand that one corrupt restore file means that restore will never work again until all points are cleared which can be done by disabling/rebooting and re-enabling.
