Windows XP won't "System Restore back to previous date"

I'm running windows XP home and when I try to restore to any previous date after rebooting it always says "system could not be restored back to previous date, all your system information has not changed"...I haven't been able to do this for a while now, does anyone know what the problem might be and how I could fix it?...Thanks

Thank you for the reply, I'm running Kaspersky internet security 6.0 and I tried restoring with it completely shut done with no luck!

I have had some luck doing that when I got the same message.

Start> run> type in msconfig > boot.ini> safeboot
