Whenever I try to use system restore, it says:
"System restore is not able to protect your computer. Please restart your computer, and then run System Restore again"

Of course, I tried restarting, and it didnt help. I went into the Services thing in the Administrative tools to see if it was actually running, which it wasnt. So I tried to start it, and it came up with this:

"Could not start the System Restore Service service on Local Computer

Error 5: Access is Denied."

THX FOR ANSW.

Is this Microsoft Windows system restore or is it a system restore from a system partition (system restore selected at boot up)?

What is the reason for you wanting to do a system restore? Is it because of malware? If so, that's not what system restore is for at all.

What protective software do you have though? System restore can often be badly affected by malware.

I have NOD32 Antivirus 4 and Spyware Cease.

Was actually wondering the same thing. A large number of malware-variants will either hide themselves in Sys restore for re-spawning, or disable Sys Restore to make recovery all the more difficult.

DL and rund both HijakThis and MalwareBytes to see where things really stand.

That being said, Sys Restore will occasionally fail in its own right due to corruption of core process files, which can usually be fixed by running a Windows Repair... but don't take this option until malware completely ruled out

C:/windows/system 32/restore
