Hello,

 

and, System Restore is a frequent target of malicious software in an attempt to prevent you from getting yourself back to a previous point before it moved in.

 

 

A few good free scans won't hurt:

 

Download, install, update and do a full scan with these three free malware detection programs:

 

Malwarebytes (MBAM): http://malwarebytes.org/

SUPERAntiSpyware: (SAS): http://www.superantispyware.com/

AVG (AVG): http://free.avg.com/

 

You can also try to renew the files:

 

Navigate to C:\Windows\System32 and rename ssrstr.dll to ssrstr.xxx.

Window File Protection should replace it.

 

Next navigate to C:\WINDOWS\system32\Restore and rename rstrui.exe to

rstrui.xxx.

It should also be replaced.

 

Now try to start System Restore.

 

Good luck
