System Restore - Restore system settings and previous versions of file

estore system settings and previous versions of file is greyed out on my system, I may have disabled a required service for this, can anyone point me to the right direction for this?

As I'm about to try the X-Fi MB2 mod again as the last time I tried it my system was messed up that it wont even recognize my actual X-Fi card properly. So I'm thinking a system restore can help me with this experiment.

I'd start with system restore. Make sure it's enabled.

System Restore - Enable or Disable

Other things to check are system restore configuration, making sure system protection is turned on, and some general troubleshooting steps for system restore.
