I am running Windows Professional and I'm currently on a domain. When I try to open System Restore it says:
"System Restore has been turned off by group policy. To turn on System Restore, contact your domain Administrator"

Can anyone help me please?

I followed the steps and it did not work still. It said:
"The System Restore Service service on Local Computer started and then stopped. Some services stop automatically if they have no work to do, for example, the Performance Logs and Alerts service."

Is there a way to enable system restore through a program?
