Ruby, Go to the link below and under the letter "S" scroll down to "System Restore" where you'll find links for System Restore problems which may be of help.
I've looked through all the different system restore threads, but have yet come across one that addresses my problem. I'm not exactly sure when it started, but I can't even turn system restore on. I go to the system restore tab under system properties and the box to turn off system restore for all drives is checked. I uncheck it and hit okay or apply, and a little window pops up saying "System restore encountered an error trying to enable/disable one or more drives. Please restart your machine and try again." Restarting doesn't help it any. I thought that maybe it was my external hd, so i've tried with and without it connected but the same results. Anyone have any suggestions on how to fix this.
