Follow the advice from Powerless or

1. Insert the Windows XP CD

2. Click [Start] [Run]

3. Type the following command and press Enter
"rundll32.exe advpack.dll,LaunchINFSection C:\Windows\Inf\sr.inf"


System Restore core files should be reinstalled.

1. In My Computer, click the Tools menu -> Folder Options.

2. On the View tab, make sure to check the option "Hide extensions for
known file types".

3. Click OK.

4. Click the Start menu -> Run. Type "%windir%\inf" (Without quotation
marks) in the Open field. Click OK.

5. Locate and select the file "sr.inf". Right-click it and then click
Install.

Check your mail. After you drop the file right click it and install.
