Hi can someone help me please?I turned off system restore to save up some disc space but when I tried to turn it back on the system restore tab had gone from the properties on my computer.In services it has been stopped but when I try to start it it says "could not start the system restore service on local computer access is denied error 5"I don't know a lot about computers but I've tried everything that I could find on the internet.Could someone recommend something please?p.s I don't have my windows xp disc.Thankyou in advance.

Try this go to Start/Run and type sfc /scannow and hit enter (Watch the space betyween sfc and/)
You will need your XP CD.

I will post a link when I find it again.
