Can't create restore point: XP Sp3 - System Restore is on but you can't write description


Problem:

Found this on a friends PC when trying to go back to an earlier restore point and didn't find any.

  • Checked System Properties/System Restore - shows it's monitoring drive C (the only one)
  • Performed ChkDsk & reboots
  • Looked for, and found, System Volume Information, hover over shows this as empty
  • Reinstalled System Restore by right click on c:\Windows\inf\sr.inf and selecting install
  • Tried Safe Mode but Create Restore Point option is missing
  • Tried reboot f8 Last Known Good, still the same
  • Tried searching the Web but with no success except one referring to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \ System \ CurrentControlSet \ Services \ VxD \ VxDMon but this doesn't exist in this Registry!
  • No relevant events in Event Log


Solution:
What did work was uninstalling IE8.
Windows search, system restore, and the rolled back to IE6 now work fine.
