Looks like you need to do a repair install Repair Install

This thread explains the same problem you have : System Restore fails

You could try this firstly - put your w7 install dvd in the drive first - so it can copy the files
Next click start - type CMD in the search press enter - right click and select run as administrator - type this in the window SFC /scannow press enter this will scan your system files for corruption.

I tried your suggestion to install the windows 7 dvd. Explain "so it can copy the files". I did your second suggestion to scan the system and this "did not find any integrity violations". One comment, the prompt was C:\Windows\System32> and my system is 64. Would that make a difference? I hope I can fix this without a Repair Install!
