Let's try the easy option.

Disable System Restore for all your drives.

Restart your computer then re-enable system restore for your Windows drive only and see if you can create a system restore point.

You stated you have Ccleaner. Open it up and go to tools/ system restore. You will see how many restore points you have and you can also remove them from there if you care to.

It seems to me that CCleaner has done a bit of damage to your system and cleaned it too aggressively.

In the absence of any other ideas I can only suggest you re-install Windows and leave CCleaner well alone. Windows 7, along with Microsoft Security Essentials and Malwarebytes does a pretty good job of looking after your system.
