    This is a post on behalf of my daughter.

    She has a Philips XP Media Centre and she is unable to use System Restore. She has tried using different Restore Points but after the PC restarts she gets a message saying your computer cannot be restored to the date selected and no changes have been made.

    She also gets the same message when she tries to set a restore point.

    She is getting quite annoyed and would appreciate any help you can give.

    Your Restore Points may be corrupted. It only takes one to botch all the rest as they are "chained" together. You could do the following, but bear in mind that all previous Restore Points will be lost:

    Right-click on My Computer and click on 'Properties'
    Click on the 'System Restore' tab to open the System Restore configuration window.
    Check the box 'Turn off System Restore on all drives'.
    Restart the computer. This will delete all previous Restore Points.
    If you want to re-enable System Restore, go back to the System Restore configuration window.
    Uncheck the box 'Turn off System Restore on all drives'.
    Exit the configuration window and open System Restore.
    Create a Restore Point

    As a check, you can restart the computer to see if the single Restore Point will Restore.
    If you do, and it does restore successfully, but you want to revert to the original state, restart System Restore and select to Undo the last Restore Point.
