System Repair not working!

Ok, i need to restore my laptop to an earlier time since i can experience its slower than before and my internet connection is very much messed up since it keeps disconnecting me automatically i think its because of the programs i installed yesterday and thats why i want to do a system restore but the problem is i can't

Whenever i open system restore it shows its turned off, i tried turning it on on the drives but it still says its off. i'm attaching the screenshot. please help me, i'm not calling the manufacturer support because i'm worrried about my data. and by the way i do not have a backup boot CD since my laptop is only a month old and well i'm a lazy ass.

Try running System Restore from the Windows 7 DVD or (if you don't have one yet) the System Repair Disc - Create.

You may have corrupted files causing SysRestore to have malfunctioned. Run SFC -SCANNOW Command
repeatedly if necessary to repair System files.

You can also consider copying out your data to restore to Factory Condition using PQService. First make your Recovery disks as a backup, then run the Recovery partition which is a more stable method of recovering to Factory Condition.

Hello:

To turn on System Protection so that Restore Points can be created, you need go to Start -> right-click Computer -> click on Properties -> click on Advanced System Settings on the menu on the left -> click on the System Protection tab -> click on "Configure"-> select the first option, "Restore system settings and previous versions of files."

Unfortunately, because you had System Protection turned off, Restore Points were not created.

For more info. refer to the following:

System Protection - Turn On or Off

I strongly recommend that you back up all your data before making any changes.

The screenshot shows System Protection was already turned on.

There may be problems with your System files that are making System Restore malfunction. When this happens System Restore will sometimes run from the Windows 7 DVD or Repair CD which doesn't fully depend upon System Files.

If not follow the steps to attempt to Repair System files, report back what it finds.

The two screenshots conflict, with the one on the right saying Protection is on for both drives. Yet the one used to Restore says it's turned off.

This can indicate a malfunction so worth trying Restore from disk which doesnt depend upon System Files, then repairing System Files.
