Turn system restore off, restart computer and turn system restore on.
That will clear all old restore points and it'll create new one.

To elaborate on what Broni said:

Clear all restore point, then create a new one:
For Vista and Windows 7 Users: (must be logged in as an administrator)
1) Right-click My Computer either on desktop or Start Menu and click "Properties.
2) Click "System Protection" tab and highlight your system drive (Usually C:\)
3) Click the "Configure" button below, then click "Turn off System Protection." Click "Apply" and answer "Yes" to the prompt, then click "OK."
4) Reboot the computer.
5) Follow Steps #1 and #2 above.
6) Click "Configure" button then select "Restore System settings and Previous versions of files."
Click "Apply", "OK" and OK."

Regards,
Brooks
