How to enable system restore it says

  1. Open System by clicking the Start button 4f6cbd09-148c-4dd8-b1f2-48f232a2fd33_818, right-clicking Computer, and then clicking Properties.

  2. In the left pane, click System protection

All very well but I don't have a system protection tab.  A screenshot attached just to prove my sanity (or incompetence, let's find out)

 

Ideas Please

Looking at your screenshot it indeed is not there. However, you can access by typing System Restore in your Search Control Panel in upper right

 

of screen. You can also click Start and type system restore in search programs and files.

 

If your question is how to turn on System Restore, see the following:

1. Click Start

2. Click All Programs

3. Click Accessories

4. Click System Tools

5. Click System Restore

6. Click System Restore Settings on the left side

7. Uncheck "Turn off system restore"

8. Click OK

Hope this helps

Even if you click any of these three options, you can always change to the System Protection tab.

Thanks both, it's up and running; even better I've managed to solve my current problem without having to revert to a non-existent restore-point
