I've used the Windows system restore feature in the past with no problems. I attempted to use it recently to set my system's restore point back 3 days. When I was presented with the calendar, I clicked on the highlighted date I wanted to use but nothing happened. I checked and none of the dates were clickable.

Any ideas?
