However, if I attempt to use system restore it still says that it is turned off by domain administrator.
I'm still lost.

you don't have to be in safe mode as long as the account has administrator privileges.
ok try this why, click start, click control panel, double click system,
in the system properties dialog box, cliick on system restore, if system restore
is off click the check box to turn it on. also if you have more then one drive make
sure you pick the right drive, (generally C drive)let me know how this goes.

Could this be a virus or trojan blocking access to system restore? I use an enterprise level version of McAfee antivirus. It is update almost daily. System scan does not reveal any viruses? I also run at all times spywareblaster, spyware guard, spybot search and destroy immunization and zone alarm firewall.
Spybot does not find any threats when it scans. What do you think is going on?
