System Restore is also available through the Start Menu: Start > All Programs > Accessories > System Tools > System Restore. Is it also missing there?

In Dial-a-fix, Repair System Restore is in the Tools menu - click on the hammer icon.

It may be that a malware infection is causing this. Download the Anti-Malware Toolkit from the downloads section (requires .net framework), then see the PC Cleanup page for advice on using it to cleaning your computer.

I am presently using mallwarebytes .the paid version its definitions are up tp date ,ran acouple oh on line scanners and my antivirus software is up to date as well.. system is clean of spyware and viruses. Acting as though there are some corrupted windos files. I would like to thank you people for taking the time to help me out. Wish i could find a way to resolve this issue Rickster23b

You can always use Dial-a-fix tools to run sfc /scannow to repair any potentially damaged Windows files.

tried this to no avail thanks again for your expertise: Rickster23b

Is your System Restore service running?

Go to Start > Run > services.msc

System Restore Service

It should be set to Automatic and Started.

Go to Start > Run and enter "%Windir%\INF\sr.inf"

You can also go to the Event Viewer and check for System Restore errors by right clicking My Computer and clicking Manage. Check the Application and System logs for any errors.

Be sure you're running these things as an Administrator.

i opened the event yiewer and in the system and application logs there was error messages: The one in the system log that comes up the most is

System Restore Service terminated with the following error Access is denied

Try the Dial-a-fix Repair Permissions tool.

I ran the permissions tool in dial-a- fix then went to the display manager window but the system restore tab is still missing . An error message to that effect was entered in the system log. Would like to thank you and your people there at Lunarsoft for your ongoing support. Rickster23b

I should have been more specific; I meant run Fix Permissions, then try again to restart System Restore as Tarun instructed.

This time i ran the fix permissions in Dial-a-fix then tried enabling system restore at the services. msc window. Received the following error message

Could not start the System Restore Service on Local Computer. Error 5 Access is denied

This registry repair should do the trick. Right click here and Save As or copy the text below into a notepad and save the file as SysRestoreFix.reg

You should see an icon that looks like and under it the name SysRestoreFix.

Remember you can right click > Save As this file then double click it to merge it with your registry. It's the same as the code above.
