First, make sure *StateMgr is still enabled in your MSCONFIG Startup list. It
>is what drives System Restore. Necessary.
As you have disabled it and and are having trouble with it, all the files in the
>_Restore area are now no longer valid, so it would be a good idea to delete all of
>them. Using the Troubleshooting tab to disable System Restore should work and delete
>all of the files, but if some of the critical ones are corrupted this does not work.
Make sure you have the Windows ME Updates from Microsoft. One of them is a fix
>for problems with System Restore.
Then use a Windows ME boot diskette to boot the system to a real mode DOS prompt.
>Use the DELTREE C:\_RESTORE command to remove the whole system restore folder.
>Then reboot into normal mode, and do a ScanDisk and DEFRAG to check the system and
>pack the disk drive space. Then check that Restore is enabled in the Troubleshooting
>tab. You should then be able to go to the System Restore program in System Tools
>and set a manual restore checkpoint.
