system restore recovery

How do i turn on system restore as the Administrator. It says 'System Restore has been turned off by group policy and that i should contact the domain adminstrator'.

System Restore has been turned off by group policy

1. Click Start, Run and type GPEDIT.MSC

2. Navigate to this path (in left pane):

-> Computer Configuration
--> Administrative Templates
---> System
----> System Restore

3. (in right pane)
Set Turn off System Restore to Not Configured
(highlight 'Turn off System Restore' > rightclick and choose Properties > put dot in 'Not Configured')

4. Set Turn off Configuration to Not Configured

Also check in Control Panel > User Profiles that your profile has Admin rights.

Lotvic. I Tried all that.I Tried going to My Computer > Properties >System Properties. System Restore is not there, it has gone. When i check on another computer it is there.

  lotvic 21:34 20 Oct 2009

control panel > administrator tools > services
scroll down to 'System Restore Service' rightclick and choose 'Properties' and set it to 'Automatic' at start up, click OK
Close pc down and reboot.
see if it is now there
