It should only be on for the disk with this label and icon, also try doing it with your external disk attached if it gives you an error safely eject your external disk, unplug it and try it again.

Okay I have found this on the AVG forums: try disable AVG Self protection (AVG program -> F8 -> AVG Self protection -> Untick Enable AVG Self protection option -> Save new settings.) See if that works for you a simple google search does make it look like your exact error is due to the new avg free and paid versions. I would also still turn off protection for the G drive (one showing missing) since system restore does not mess with files just system settings and installed programs so if your external drive is not used for anything but storage it will not effect it anyways and will just complicate things.

I just posted that from the AVG forums but it may be for an older version of the program just go to options and find that area for avg self protection and turn it off (it will probably be mad that's okay for testing) and save your settings then create a new restore point and try to restore it, the old ones I don't think will work.

I think i may have done this earlier. I open AVG then options ,disable protection,go to system protection and create a date( can this be a date ,say 9/1/2015 ,when i had no problems,and attempt to restore (not sure what you mean by save settings, i will do this if i have got it right.
