Windows 7: system protection not working properly

system protection not working properly

hi guys,
i opened system protection today to find it hasnt been making restore points and that there was an error when i tried to set it up.

My system came with Vista which I then set up to dual boot with 7, and then following that, I deleted Vista altogether. In system restore, I can see
Windows 7 C: (system)
Windows 7 C: (missing)
Windows 7 C: (missing)

I think at least one of system /recovery my belong to Vista, as they dont show up in windows explorer

anybody have any idea what is going on / how to fix this

common sense told me to look in Easeus and I have found that recovery and system still exist from before, must I delete them and run the system recovery from my install disc to rebuild the MBR?
