Ah, the Group Policy. The Registry's eviller twin.

Try this:

1. Click Start
2. Click Run
3. Type in gpedit.msc
4. Click OK
5. Expand Computer Configuration
6. Expand Administrative Templates
7. Expand System
8. Click System Restore
9. Double-click Turn off Configuration
10. On the Setting tab, select Enable.
11. Click OK.
