PS are you running Norton security?

Sorry I didn't include that information.Yes,I have Norton 360 installed.

I have no personal experience of this issue but there have been reports of Norton creating problems with Vista system restore.

You could try creating a restore point yourself in Vista then temporarily shutting down Norton and trying to restore.

Sorry I cannot help futher.

Finally look at this it may help. click here Running SR in safe mode looks the best bet however.
