Are there Restore Points listed for the earlier date you are trying to restore to?

When there are no old restore points created. Obviously you will not be able to restore your machine to earlier dates. Windows creates restore points automatically, however if restore option is disabled on a particular drive it does not monitor. So the reason that you are not able to find the earlier restore points could be, Restore option on your hard drive was disabled.

What Anti-Virus application are you using ? I found when I had Norton Security Suite installed on my PC , the system restore utilty would never work ? When my subscription with symantec expried I changed to a free anti virus app called Microsoft Essentials ! Ever since that wonderful change of getting Norton off my PC it runs better and finally if I need I can use the system restore utilty !
Good Luck Nick
