When I try to do a system restore, I get this message:

Can anyone tell me how to turn it back on?

Open the registry editor (Click Start, Choose Run and Execute regedit).

Navigate to the following key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows NT\SystemRestore

On the right panel right click on DisableSR and choose delete.

Out of curiosity, why would anybody have that on (DisableSR) in the first place?

I mean, why wouldn't ya want SysRestore...?

Thanks.

Maybe somebody decided to play with gpedit.msc :cheesy: or one program installed on the computer like Norton GoBack lets say, doesn't like the ideea of System Restore being enabled... Who knows?

The fact is that the message is about a group policy restriction and I just created the key with the problem on my computer and got the same error message.
