i am having trouble with system restore on my vista based machine.

each time i go to use system restore i get an error message relating to "system32\Sysdm.cpl"

can someone tell me how i can replace this file.

This works for XP. But can't see why it won't work for Vista.
1. Click Start, click Control Panel, switch to Classic View and
double-click Folder
2. Under the View tab, click to check "Show hidden files and folders", and then uncheck
"Hide protected operating system files", click Ok.

3. Launch Explorer or double-click My Computer, locate to C:\Windows\inf,
right-click on SR (SR.inf) and select install.

4. If the system requests the Vista DVD, please insert the DVD into DVD-ROM and finish the installation according to the instructions.

Thanks for the tip mr woowoo, but i do not have the file SR.inf on my machine.

I have replaced this file with a copy from another machine, but i am still getting the "SystemPropertiesProtection.exe" message stating SYSDM.cpl ie either not designed to run on Windows or it contains an error.
