This is what I get when I try System Restore...

System Restore has been turned off by group policy. To turn on System Restore contact your domain administrator.


Vista 32 bit Now what.

System Restore Point Creation Disabled by Group Policy in Vista

CAUTION: This step involves making changes in the Windows registry.

Always Create a New Restore Point and back up your registry before making any changes.

Vista/Windows 7 users can refer to these instructions. If you're not familiar with working in the registry, then you should NOT attempt to make any changes on your own. Improper changes to the registry could adversely affect your computer and render it inoperable. ERUNT or ERUNTgui is an excellent free tool that allows you to to take a snapshot (backup) of your registry before making changes and restore it when needed.

Note: ERUNT and NTREGOPT will only work correctly in Windows 7 and Vista if you turn off User Account Control (UAC) in Windows Control Panel.
