Could somebody please explain to me why System Restore would show the status as disabled and direct me to run diskcleanup and make sure there is at least 200 MB of free disk space, when there is over 20Gb of free disk space? Thanks.

The service is set to automatic and shows that it is started. Sorry the term is "suspended". The status says that the Local Disk is suspended because there is not enough disk space available, to run disk cleanup and ensure that there is more than 200 MB.

In that case, make sure that logical disk managers, are turned on, also download ccleaner and tell it to clean.http://www.ccleaner.com/ also download theis tool windirstat, it will highlight what the computer thinks is taking the space. http://windirstat.info/
