While running scans I turned off system restore. Now I can't turn back on.
I get an error message reading:

Application has failed to start because Framedyn.dll was not found.

Once I do get to system properties and uncheck box I get another meassage reading:

System Restore encountered an error trying to enable/disable one or more drives. Please restart and try again.

Tried but with same results.
