Can you please give us a little more detail about the problem? I know you have a problem with system restore, but in what aspect? Can't you bring up the System restore window at all? Or can't you restore your system?
Instead of a System restore, you might be able to do a Repair install. Or just talk us through the problem that makes you need to do a system restore.

Cant bring up system restore can in safe mode but seems to have little effect as whenever I try to install out of safe mode I keep getting the same message. Any exe file produces the same message. I have been trying to install skype all I get is the above message. I have tried the system restore in safemode no joy

Ah so any application comes up with that error? Thanks for the clarification
Now, my first choice would be to do a file integrity check (looks for corrupt/missing files in your Windows installation).
Look at this this web page to see how to do this SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

Hi gracethegal and Welcome to SevenForums,

If you can not do a system restore and failed to make a System Image backup, then I recommend a repair install.

Repair Install

This same advice is applicable to the Thread Starter. I can understand wanting to "tag along", but if in the future try to avoid tagging along by simply starting your own thread.
