System Restore Won't Work

By gjschulte ·
How do I fix System Restore, when it won't work? I tried to set a restore point using the System Tools menu and got an error box pop up. When I go to access the System Restore tab from Control Panel | System Properties, I get a pop up error box titled "RUNDLL", with an exception error message. It states that an exception occurred trying to run "C:\WINDOWS\system32\shell32.dll,Control_Run.DLL"C:\WINDOWS\system32\sysdm.cpl",system".
I am running Win XP Pro SP2.
Thanks for any assistance.

unorthodox,but worked for me

Search,sr.inf-make sure you can look in hidden files and folders.Should be in C:\Windows\inf,When you locate it,right click-choose Install."Files needed window"will pop up asking for XP Pro SP-2 CD.Put disc in computer Press OK.Copy Error will appear.Push not close this window,another Copy Error will appear and ask if you want to continue Setup without copying this file?"Press" YES.Keep repeating this until Systems Settings Change asks you to restart computer now. I Know it sounds unorthodox,but it worked for me.GOOD LUCK
