That's the error message I get when I try to activate system restore. It
also says "To turn on System Restore, contact your Domain administrator." I
have a home network with 2 computers. There is no designation of
administrator of the domain, that I know of. I am the administrator of my
system. There is no "system restore" option tab under computer properties.
This all happened a few days ago, and things were working fine until then.
I really dislike not having the system restore option. Can someone please
tell me how to get it back?

System Restore Tab Missing
Check your settings here: For Pro: Start/Run/gpedit.msc. Computer Configuration,
Administrative Templates, System, System Restore.
or
"Restore system restore services" #289

I guess I should have indicated that I have XP Home.
I do not have gpedit.msc

Check here:

For WinXP Home

Click Start/Run and type REGEDIT

Locate to:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Windows NT\SystemRestore
In the right-pane, delete the value "DisableConfig".

Close Registry Editor

Close and re-open the System Restore properties page.

Note you can save the registry key first by:
On the File menu, click Export.
In the File name box, type SaveKey, and then click Save.

HOW TO: Back Up, Edit, and Restore the Registry in Windows XP
Disclaimer: Modifying the registry can cause serious problems that may require you to
reinstall your operating system. Use the information provided at your own risk.

Basher,

Is there a "DisableSR" value in the same registry key? If so, delete it as
well.

It worked for me too! You have my undying gratitude. I've been trying to
fix it for over a week.

Very Welcome snomann. As this issue is showing up lately (reported in the
newsgroup for last five days), i think this may be caused by malware /
trojan etc. It's a good idea to do a clean-up. Follow the advice given in
the following pages:

Generic Trojan / Adware Infestation Removal Procedure:
http://www.claymania.com/removal-trojan-adware.html

The Parasite Fight - Quick Fix Protocol:

Hello,

I also had the problem with group policy stopping the system restore and
your advice below fixed this but, it appears that all my restore points have
vanished except for one and this was taken on the day of the infection.

I want to restore to factory settings with ALT F11 but it would appear that
this is also being blocked.

Can you offer me any advice please?

When "group policy" is envolved, think "gpedit".
Start -> Run -> "gpedit.msc"

There's a lot of settings that may affect System Restore, but I'd look
here:

Local Computer Policy -> Administrative Templates -> System Restore ->
Turn off System Restore.

Make that:
Local Computer Policy -> Administrative Templates ->
System -> System Restore -> Turn off System Restore
