Are you by chance using a Norton Product - such as Norton 360, Norton Internet Security 2010/2011 or even the Comcast Norton Security Suite? If so you need to temporarily disable Tamper Protection so that System Restore can make changes to your system. Other AV's may have the same protection by a different name.

What does happen?
Any error messages?

Did you try to use system restore from safe mode?

What kind of problems are you having, so you need to use system restore?

Hi. I don't have any Norton products.My laptop seems a little slugish so i thought i would do a system restore.
I have tried it in safe mode but still the same outcome. The message i get says, unable to restore to an earlier date so no changes were made to yor computer.

Log on to your computer with an administrator account or with an account that has administrator credentials. . Type the following command at a command prompt, and then press ENTER:
%systemroot%\system32\restore\rstrui.exe
Follow the instructions that appear on the screen to restore your computer to an earlier state.
