System Restore is not working properly. I get this message when I click restore:

System Restore is unable to protect your computer. Please restart your computer and then run System Restore again.


Recently( yesterday) I had trouble with the [email protected] message( Fraudulent adware message). I have fixed that since then, but I am uncertain if that may have something to do with it.

Have you tried Restore in Safemode...

1. Restart your computer.
2. When the machine first starts again it will generally list some equipment that is installed in your machine, amount of memory, hard drives installed etc. At this point you should gently tap the F8 key repeatedly until you are presented with a Windows XP Advanced Options menu.
3. Select the option for Safe Mode using the arrow keys.
4. Then press enter on your keyboard to boot into Safe Mode.
5. Do whatever tasks you require and when you are done reboot to boot back into normal mode.
