Erik,
I'm having the same problem. I'm using XP Home and my desire to restore
came from simply not being able to open email windows after uninstalling
Hydravision, but I'm getting the same restore error.

I put up a post in OE6 for another reason, but also cited that I'm having
this problem. If I hear anything, I'll let you know. I've tried several
restore points, none have worked. I'm as clueless too.

Hi

That error message would suggest that one or more of the System Restore
files have become corrupt. You can try turning SR off/on, although you will
lose all existing checkpoints:

Right click on My Computer and select Properties>System Restore. Enable
'Turn off System Restore on all drives' - then reboot your PC. Go back into
SR and disable 'Turn off...' and then reboot again. After the second reboot
you should have one new checkpoint and SR should work properly after that.

Unless there is an entry in the Event Viewer that may point towards a
particular problem?
