Sometimes just turning the feature off and then back on again can jog it. Use the Help facility to find how to do it. LC.

Sorry, should have told you to reboot between Off and On. LC

Funzy, I have just found this info in PC Answers mag for fixing System Restore in WinMe.
First, use SCANREGW to create a back-up of your registry.
Then, select START/RUN/REGEDIT. Press return.
Go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CURRENTCONTROLSET\SERVICES\VXD\VXDMON and look for the entry DELAYFIRSTRSTPT. Double-click it.
Change the value from 1 to 0
Close the Registry Editor and restart the machine.
If you now start the System restore utility you should be able to create a restore point.
Hope it works for you. LC.
