System Restore has been turned off!!

Something has been dropped on my pc that has turned sysrestore off.I think I inadvertently click 'allow' ona Spybot window that popped up, and now I can't restore the pc.

Any ideas?

as i see it if you cant now actually set restore to work maybe a repair/reinstall is only option?

It is on. I really don't want to go through a full day of reformat and reinstall - the thought of that is doing my head in. :-)

Try these two ways. First turn system restore Off and reboot, then turn it back on and reboot. If that doesn't work go to Start/Run/type sfc /scannow (watch the space between sfc and /) you will need your XP CD. That should repair any system restore problem files.
