I've got something strange happening. A very short time after booting up my system slows way down. When I check to see what is running I see that my STMNGR.EXE (C:\windows\system\stmgr.exe) is utilizing 98% of my resourses. When I investigated System Restore I find that it is not functional, I can't set a restore point or even activate the system. I'm stumped, I hope you have some suggestions for me.

No luck in resetting System Restore? :(

You can try re-enabling system restore, immediately rebooting and then
disabling system restore and once again immediately rebooting...

This might be the result of stmgr.exe choking for some reason on the build
up of files that still occurs in the _restore\temp folder even with system
restore disabled. If so, cycling system restore can often clear such problems.
