System restore won't restart

  hiwatt 14:58 10 Apr 2007

(I already posted this but didn't resolve it so thought I'd try again)After switching off system restore to free up some disk space the system restore tab has vanished from system properties.In services it has been stopped but when I try to start it it says " could not start system restore on local computer error 5".I don't have my windows xp disc to reinstall.Could someone offer advice as to how to fix this please.

Thanks for the response folks.The time settings are correct however it says "an error occured while windows was synchronizing with .com"I tried updating and then tried to start system restore but still wouldn't start.Still no system restore tab either?Cheers.

Just wanted to report that I got this sorted after weeks of tring everything.I got a tip to rename the system volume information folder to something similar and this worked.System restore has reapeared and is up and running.Thanks to everyone who offered help.
