Not really.

But you could try a repair install of XP and hope for the best...nothing to lose if you have significant problems.

What kinds of problems are you having that compel a SR, in your mind?

Try this. Just may solve the problem.


REINSTALL SYSTEM RESTORE
You will need to be able to view hidden files, so go to Start>> Control Panel>> Folder Options>> View tab.
Under Advanced settings, place a check mark in: "Show hidden files and folders".
Then uncheck: "Hide extensions for known file types".
Click Apply, then OK to exit.
Open Windows Explorer, then go to Windows>> inf folder.
Open the inf folder and find a file named:
sr.inf
Right click this file and select "Install" from the resulting menu.
Note: This procedure will delete all restore points from your old installation and recreate a fresh installation of System Restore.
When finished with this reboot the system and try going back into system restore and see if it works.
