Fix System Restore does not Open problem

Never thought that this can be a problem but it is true that one of our readers wanted to know what to do when System Restore does not open.

You can also open system restore by typing %systemroot%\system32\restore\rstrui.exe in Run box (try running this command before trying following steps).

So to keep it short and specific, here are the steps:

1.    Check if the System Restore is enabled or not

•    Right click on My Computer -> Properties -> System Restore tab.
•    Uncheck (if any) the option of Turn Off system restore.

2.    If still the problem is not solved, then try re-installing it.

NOTE: Reinstalling System Restore will delete all existing restore points.

•    Type %Windir%\INF in Run box.

•    In the window that opened, find the sr.inf file, right click on it and click Install and reboot.

Now try opening the System Restore again, I am sure it will work.
