If you mean System restore try it in safe mode.or do you mean update.

Are you using I/E or Firefox.

Failing system restore in XP is usually due to a corrupt restore point

Switch off system restore and back on again to delete all restore points and try and create a new restore point.

If it won't then you need to check if it is enabled in services.

if you have other XP problems as well then you may need to do a repair

Start -run - type

sfc /scannow

press Ok let windows scan and replace missing or corrupt windows files. (this will take awhile to complete.
