Heh - though so

Please downoad the 'good vss key.zip' file from https://skydrive.live.com/#cid=93673...8FCEB92F%21115
(my SkyDrive)
Extract the .reg file from it, then right-click on the .reg file, and select Merge. You'll need to confirm (probably twice), and then you should get a success message.

Then reboot, and test System Restore to see if it's now working.

Please start a new thread of your own, and post your own MGADiag report there.
Then we'll see if you actually need it.

Please follow this tutorial and post an MGADiag report in your own thread - then we can see what the problem is.

Please also state the Version and Edition of Windows quoted on your COA sticker (if you have one) on the case of your machine (or inside the battery compartment), but do NOT quote the Key on the sticker!

Ignore errors produced when clicking on the Copy button - they simply mean that the tool could not create the backup files for some reason. The data is still copied to the clipboard for pasting to your response.
