No problem I will continue to research to see if I can find somewhere to download that file from

I actually have a copy on my old XP partition [attachment=19496:srframe.zip]
Here it is in the zip file unzip to your desktop and point it there

You did most of the work :)

Further research indicates that this can be a problem if one of the restore points is corrupted in any way. If this should happen again I have now found an easy fix for it

Turn off system restore
Reboot
Turn on system restore

Keep safe
