SYSTEM RESTORE Failure

In the last few weeks, my System Restore just wont retore, despite choosing several different restore points.

When I had Norton Abntivirus, I had to untick a particular on the interface, Restore, and then tick the box again.

I now have BT Net Protect Plus, which is McAfee included in my BT Broadband package.

Is this causing the failure, or is it something more sinister.

I regularly run anti spyware and malware, so my system seems clean and up to date.

It's Windows XP by the way

Any suggestions greatly appreciated.

Firstly, I do not need to disable system restore to clean system, as it is cleaned regularly, and is free from trojans etc.

I want to use system restore not disable it.

Secondly, it does not restore in safe mode.

Norton used to block system restore, and what I am asking is, does McAfee block system restore as well, and how can I get round it.
