May not be your fault, but if you run Norton that can stop it running.

Try running it in safe mode.

If you have Norton, you need to "turn off protection for Norton products" then run restore.
Switch protection back on.

This works for me and may apply to other makes of anti virus.

Have you been choosing dates shown in BOLD print, dates shown in normal print are NOT restore points!
