Solved Cant create system restore point

May 13, 2012 at 10:18:09
Specs: Windows XP

When ever I try to open my System Restore UI I get the following message "System Restore is not able to protect your computer. Please restart your computer, and then run System Restore again." I restarted my PC and it didn't work I checked if my System Restore was enabled and was the whole time. Checked for virusses none found. Uninstalled recently installed software, cleaned up some hard disk space, Defrag hard disk, ran a disk checked didn't help much. also used the "sfc /scannow" command.
Can some one help.

Thanks. :-)

Wen I try toturn my System Restore off I get This message "System Restore encountered an error trying to enable/disable one or more drives. please restart your machine."

Tryed this

Net Start "System Restore Service"
A System error has occurred
System error 5 has occurred
access denied.

the event viewer says this

The System Restore filter encountered the unexpected error '0xC0000008' while processing the file 'change.log' on the volume 'HarddiskVolume1'. It has stopped monitoring the volume.

tryed starting it from here "compmgmt.msc/Services and apps/Services/System Restore Services"

then it tells me "Could not Start the System Restore Services on Local Computer"
"Error 5:Access Denied"

Tanks guys for your help but I finally solved the probleme.
It was my System Volume Information folder that was corrupt I just had to delete it and reopend my System Restore.

How i did it:
1 Downloaded an app called "IObit Unlocker".
2 Shared my "System Volume Information" folder to make it accessible.
3 used the "IObit Unlocker" app to unlock the files within the folder that cant be deleted.
4 Deleted the "System Volume Information" folder
5 Reopend the "System Restore" it created a new "System Volume Information" folder and now I can create new restore points.
