How often do you turn your PC on ?

Restore points are created when you make changes to the system, or when some programs are installed. You can also create one manually.

Restore points are also created automatically every 24 hours your computer is turned on, or every 24 "calander hours". These are then called "System Points" Your computer has to be idle for system points to be created. Also, "System Restore Service" and "Task Scheduller" have to be started and running at "services.msc"

Your computer configuration????

You have made 125 posting so why not put your computer configuration in your BIO.
Your details of your problem are very brief which makes it very difficult for people to try and help you - you need to elaborate a bit more.
One of the reasons for only one restore point could be because of the lack of free space on your hard disk. Usually restore point uses about 12% of FREE disk space for restore points and will delete older points to stay within this allocated space. You can change this option in --> control panel/systems restore/settings.
Or it could be a cleaning program you have that deletes things like temp files.
The first thing to always suspect is viruses and spyware - let me know if you want to know where to get free programs.
Sorry but that is all I can say based on what you have told us.
