System Restore

Can someone help me please? My System Restore does not appear to be working properly. I am logged on as an administrator and System Restore is enabled. I have System Check Points on the calendar (bold dates) but when I try to restore to one of these the egg timer hangs on the "next" button but does not go any further.
I have read the "Windows XP System Restore Is Easy To Use", but can't find anything there to match my scenario.
I am using XP Home and have MacAfee AV.

How long have you left your computer after you click the "next" button?

I have known it to stop responding for up yo 10 minutes for some reasons

Fully up to date but when I click on the System Restore Settings I get a McAfee warning come up saying "C:\Windows system 32\restore\rstrui.exe contains suspicious scripting, activity has been stopped".
I have run a Full scan with McAfee, Windows Defender Beta and Lavasoft Adaware Personal and all report "all clear".

Turn off system restore reboot and then enable restore again. You will loose your restore points ;but will remove any suspicious files that maafee has found there.

Create a new restore point and see if it now works
