After doing a fresh windows xp pro installation, I found out that System Restore was not working. I can't restore at an early time because all days are blank, and I can't create a restore point. I followed this guide http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=302796 and I got stuck on Method 3 because I'm not seeing what I supposed to see... Here is a screenshot:Posted Image
What am I doing wrong?

Thanks.

Hello.

Your disk looks fine to me :thumbsup: . Method three was simply to check if you had enough space for System Restore. You have a few hundred times more than enough.

Proceed to method 4 and 5 and tell use if any of those work.

With Regards,

I found nothing wrong in Method 4. In Method 5, everything went fine, but the days were blank ( no restore points). I forgot to mention that when I try to Create a Restore Point, first I write the restore point description and when I click CREATE, I get this message: "System Restore is not able to create a restore point. Please restart the computer, and then run System Restore again." Which I did, and I get the same message again. What should I do now?

Thanks.
