Sometimes this quick fix works.

Go to help and support option in start menu - type in turn off system restore, follow those instructions. Shut down, boot up, then turn on System Restore.

You could try to do a system restore with the User Account control disabled.

When you are trying to do a system restore do you have any usb devices plugged in to your PC. If so remove them.
