?rstrui.exe? Entry point not found

Error box message:

The procedure entry point RemoteAssistancePrepareSystemRestore could not be located in the Dynamic link library ?WINSTA.dll.?

My sys:

Anyone had this problem?

rstrui.exe = system restore, are you saying that system restore will not open or is it just a message from the event viewer?

If system restore does not open try,

Go to run type in system32 press ok, when restore window opens, Right Click on rstrui and click on Open.

System restore wouldn't open.

I tried what you said and it told me that the file rstrui was not there.

So I Uninstalled/reinstalled (in an act of desperation)
SP1 and that fixed the problem, but am none the wiser!

Thanks for your help.

I will leave this thread unresolved for a while so that people can see it

Start, Run, Type:


Click ok.

Find a file named "sr.inf" right click it, choose install.

Or... start, search, For files and folders, All files and folders

Keyword: sr.inf


right click it, choose install.

In both cases have your XP CD in the drive.
