    My system restore is disabled right now, but when i try to enable it back, the check mark is always checked. That means i can't enable system restore back, its always disabled. Can someone help me?

    Are you talking about right clicking My Computer > Properties > Performance > File System > Troubleshooting then unchecking "Disable System Restore" click "Apply" and "OK" and then restarting? It's important to click "Apply" and "OK" and then you will be asked to restart your system. If the check mark continues to appear after following the above, I would try to enable System Restore while you are in the Safe Mode.

    When you do get System Restore enabled, be sure the *StateMgr is checked in the (msconfig) startup list.

    System Restore is junk, and you should be glad that it's disabled. Their are far better registry backup programs. Do a Google search for "registry backup" and you'll find them.

    IMHO, System Restore/PCHealth is about equally responsible with IE 5.5 for most of the problems people have with ME.

    System Restore shouldn't slow down your system and perhaps you may have a virus or trojan that has caused the slow down.

    Have you done a virus scan lately. Perhaps if you post a HijackThis log in your next post, someone will check to see if any bad registry entries are present.

    Go to http://www.tomcoyote.org/hjt/ , and download 'HijackThis!'.
    Unzip, doubleclick HijackThis.exe, and hit "Scan".

    When the scan is finished, the "Scan" button will change into a "Save Log" button.
    Press that, save the log somewhere, and paste it in your next post.

    Most of what it lists will be harmless or even required, so do NOT fix anything yet.
    Someone here will be happy to help you analyze the results.

    I have noticed that *StateMgr is not enabled in your startup list as I mentioned in Post#2, this needs to be Enabled for System Restore to function correctly. This may be your problem of a slow running system after you enabled System Restore with *StateMgr disabled, there may be a conflict with System Restore.

    Thats all the entries i have when i scan with hijackthis. Im aware that *StageMgr is not enabled. That is because i don't want to enable system restore. If i do, i'll enable *StateMgr. I prefer system restore to be disabled.
