That's the error message I get when I try to activate system restore. It
also says "To turn on System Restore, contact your Domain administrator." I
have a home network with 2 computers. There is no designation of
administrator of the domain, that I know of. I am the administrator of my
system. There is no "system restore" option tab under computer properties.
This all happened a few days ago, and things were working fine until then.
I really dislike not having the system restore option. Can someone please
tell me how to get it back?

I guess I should have indicated that I have XP Home.
I do not have gpedit.msc

Check here:

For WinXP Home

Click Start/Run and type REGEDIT

Locate to:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Windows NT\SystemRestore
In the right-pane, delete the value "DisableConfig".

Close Registry Editor

Close and re-open the System Restore properties page.

Note you can save the registry key first by:
On the File menu, click Export.
In the File name box, type SaveKey, and then click Save.

Basher,

Is there a "DisableSR" value in the same registry key? If so, delete it as
well.

It worked for me too! You have my undying gratitude. I've been trying to
fix it for over a week.

Very Welcome snomann. As this issue is showing up lately (reported in the
newsgroup for last five days), i think this may be caused by malware /
trojan etc. It's a good idea to do a clean-up. Follow the advice given in
the following pages:

Generic Trojan / Adware Infestation Removal Procedure:
http://www.claymania.com/removal-trojan-adware.html

That's the error message I get when I try to activate system restore. It
also says "To turn on System Restore, contact your Domain administrator." I
have a home network with 2 computers. There is no designation of
administrator of the domain, that I know of. I am the administrator of my
system. There is no "system restore" option tab under computer properties.
This all happened a few days ago, and things were working fine until then.
I really dislike not having the system restore option. Can someone please
tell me how to get it back?
