If you have your Windows CD, then go to Start -> Run -> sfc /scannow
When prompted for a CD, pop one in and let it repair your system files.

If you don't have a CD, then do the registry tweak described here: http://www.updatexp....cannow-sfc.html
Check if you have the I386 folder in the root of your Windows drive.

I found this fix from another topic from a fellow Tech named Fenor. The OP he was helping got the same exact problem fixed by doing this.

"Navigate to C:\Windows\System32 and rename ssrstr.dll to ssrstr.xxx.
Window File Protection should replace it.

Next navigate to C:\WINDOWS\system32\Restore and rename
rstrui.exe to rstrui.xxx. It should also be replaced.

Now try to start System Restore."
