My system administrator cant turn on system restore

i am part of a small home network, somehow the system administrator turned off system restore and cannot turn it back on. i have gone through what the tutorial said about turning it back on, but the configure button is blanked out on my computer. it is really getting me worried because if i cant turn it on, if a problem happens, then i cant system restore

Does yours match mine? That's the default setting.


If it not on "manual" it won't run.
