Hello,I've just tried to use system restore,because my sound card keeps "losing"itself.When trying to access system restore,it's greyed-out,and turned off saying"disabled by Group Policy".
Any ideas please on how I can turn it on again?Being given the option to turn on,but cannot do so.XP Pro sp2,many thanks in advance.By the way,I've very recently had to do a new install of Windows.

Try Malwarebytes free in case it is a virus.

Apologies for the delay,I don't know what I'm doing in the registry and would rather leave well alone.
Malwarebytes found nothing.so any further ideas please?

Following the details in Sea Urchin's link ref GPEDIT,I enabled both turn on system restore and turn off configuration,then reset them to not configured again,all is now well and system restore can be used again.
Many thanks and will tick as resolved.
