When I click on the system restore button I get the message, "System Restore
has been turned off by group policy. To turn on System Restore, contact your
domain Administrator." I have run all of the virus programs and anti-spyware
programs I have, so I don't know if it's a new virus or not a virus at all,
but I have no idea what to do or what a domain administrator is. Someone
please help.

Go to Start>Run, key in gpedit.msc and hit ENTER. Under Computer
Configuration, expand Administrative Templates, expand System, then click on
the System Restore folder. In the right-hand pane, double-click on Turn off
Configuration and, under the Setting tab, click in the radio button beside
Not Configured. Click on Apply then OK.

or

Open Registry Editor and navigate 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.
