Seagate SeaTools DOS CD ISO is what you need.
You can get the file from HERE. Use the instructions from my previous post 12 to burn the image file to disc using image burn program.

Doesn't look like a HD issue either. So the obvious reason now is that one of your restore points is corrupted which makes them all unusable. The best thing to do is delete all restore points and then create a new restore point for today. Go a day or two and then try to restore back to the newly created one.
