Right-click on "Computer", choose Properties, click "System Protection", then tick the drive you want to create a Restore Point for, then click the "Create" button. click here

You cannot do a restore if no points have been made. You can only do one now to help with future problems

As Kevscar has said, if it's been turned off then System Restore won't be any help with your current problem.

Try using Last Known Good Configuration.

ok thanks.
Didnt know you had to create youre own restore points, didnt have to do that with xp.

Wrong,Vista has an improved restore point system, But if you wish to make a restore point you have to make one, just like XP.

Vista automatically makes a restore point when you install software and updates provided that System Restore is enabled. You can also manually create points at any time. If System Restore has been disabled, either intentionally or by a virus or malware, then you end up not having any restore points to select. I have just checked my System Restore and have eleven points during the last eight days. I know that information does you no good at this time but when you clean the machine of it's nasties then you know that, provided you enable it, System Restore will be doing it's job.

Teaboy - surely you can set the Task Scheduler to create a System Checkpoint at automatic intervals.

I suspect that's how misty72's XP was doing it.

Thanks all for your advice,

Think i will need to take the laptop in to be sorted, its way beyond me this one.

Oh and teaboy, wrong, i never had to make a restore point with xp, i could always just restore it when needed.
Probably as pineman100 said.

ALL operating system make restore point itself when we appear a new program that is according to operating system parameter and you can also create it.

but if we are facing any problem like you are facing now at that time we can not create any restore point in pc.

some software that can restore system while system has fully destroy but these all software are paid.

happy computing
