    What OS are you using? How did you try to create a restore point? More info is needed to get help.

    On Win 7 right click My Computer and choose properties, then select System Protection along the left side. This should open the System Properties window to the System Protection tab where a system restore point is created.

    Have any restore points been created by your system? These points are created automatically when certain changes take place, i.e. s/w changes, updates, etc.

    Thanks for the response. I am using Windows Vista at present. I have checked and am unable to find any restore points that have been created. I tried to create one, but the system said was unable to create. I have had some problems in the past, and would like to use this service.

    Thanks a bunch for your help.

    I am using Windows Vista at present
    Does this mean that you could be dual booting?
    If so, then the System Restore may not work, what other OS's are installed on this machine?

    Now running HP Pavilion a6528p, with Win7 64 Bit OS.

    O. K. I checked to see if the System Restore was running. The system says that it is, but still unable to create a restore point. Any help will be appreciated.

    Go to START--Programs---Accessories--Tools--System Restore.

    Try this free system restore point. I use it every day as I want to have about two weeks points built up. A week is really plenty tho. This URL-http://www.dougknox.com/xp/utils/xp_sysrestorepoint.htm

    Not Dual booting. Only booting into VISTA.

    It now sounds like you OS might be corupted. Or perhaps a malware/ virus problem. Either way, the time spent further troubleshooting may be more than clean installing your OS. I would back up all data then clean install. This will clean your system to a pristine state and allow you to weed out apps you do not use any more. Good luck.

    See if Error 0x80070032 when creating a System Restore point in Windows Vista helps.
