Windows 7: HELP can't make any system restore points

HELP can't make any system restore points

Whenever I try to make a system restore point. This happens. It was working a few days ago.

The only thing I did today was installed Game Booster, Install Opera, Uninstall Sims 2, update Tune Up Utilities and used it to clean up my system.

I made sure Volume Shadow Copy is set to automatic in Services, but it still doesn't work.

EDIT: problem solved. I uninstalled game booster, opera, and tune up utilities and everything is back to normal. I think Tune Up Utilities was causing this problem.
