NTUSER.DAT contains the registry settings for the user.

Managing User Profiles

The NTUSER.DAT file stores information such as passwords, user account settings, and applications settings specific to your User Profile. All that information is loaded into the Windows registry under Hkey_Current_User (HKCU) when a user logs on and is constantly updated as you use the computer. There is one NTUSER.DAT file for each user on the computer. If you delete the NTUSER.DAT file, you may no longer be able to use or log back into that user account.

The regtrans-ms files are linked to the NTuser.dat file and contain information pointing to the registry hive. They also are related to Common Log File System (CLFS) transaction logs according to MS Article ID: 948252.

There are various reasons for System Restore to lose functionality to include malware infection which can essentially disable that feature. You should perform full system scans with your anti-virus and anti-malware tools as the first step. If you're not finding any malware then its time to start troubleshooting.

I am SO impressed with these last two answers.  I've been looking for the answer to the NTUSER.dat file and also I've had problems with System Restore, although I rarely use it to go back in time as it erases whatever I had installed so System Restore, to me, can only be used to go back in time if you're sure of your dates.  At any rate, the NTUSER.dat answer made my day!!
