No matter what restore point I pick, I get a message that no changes were made, and to pick another date. I have unchecked System Restore, and restarted and then checked again, but it doesn't help. Please help.

Turning off System Protection for a disk deletes all restore points for that disk. You cannot restore the disk until you turn on System Protection again and a restore point is created.

Thanks for the info. What I meant is: I was told to un-enable and enable System Restore to fix my problem. Thereafter, when I create restore points they will work. But that hasn't worked.

There must be something else that is keeping from restoring from a specific restore point. Is there a Service that is associated with System Restore?

I believe I found what was wrong. Volume Shadow Copy Service was in Manual and not Started. I put it in Automatic and Started it.
