1- Repeat and try an older restore point (you might need to check off 'show more restore points').
2- Use Windows 7 Repair Disk (you should have made this when the machine was new) to initiate the System Restore, it will use the same restore points on your machine but it does not use the restore 'engine' that may be having the trouble. If you did not make the repair disk, you can make one from any other Windows 7 machine as long as it is of the same type (32bit or 64bit, except maybe Starter).

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.
