System Restore & Windows Updates

I have recently downloaded Windows Updates KB 919007, 920685, 920872 and 922582. Since then System Restore will not work (says it is unable to restore computer) and Security Centre is switched off. Any clues??? Has anybody else seen this problem? How can I fix it? I am running Windows XP Home SP2 on an Acer Aspire 5622WLMi laptop.

Many thanks.

As the updates are usually related to security is is possible than you have some unwanted items on your PC.

Run a good spyware program such as spybot search and destroy with system restore turned off. If it finds anything get rid of it. Reboot the Pc and try to re-enable system restore...
