    Using ME.

    Trying to set a restore point tonight and am getting the following message:

    "System restore is not able to create a restore point. Please restart the computer and then run system restore again."

    I've restarted twice and still get the same message.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks everyone.

    Can you enter Safe Mode and create a restore point there?

    (tap F8 five times per second during a restart; Choose option number three (3) in the Windows Startup dialog box using the arrow keys below the Delete key, and strike the Enter key; Click Ok when prompted).

    Yep, tried that first. But in Safe Mode you cannot set a new restore point. You can only restore from an existing point set. At least this is the case in ME.
