System Restore points not being saved

I was having trouble with system restore points being said that they were created. Then when id go to use them they would not be there. I found a simple solution to solve this issue. It is... simply put in your windows installation CD and do an UPGRADE install over your existing operating system. This is what fixed the problem in my system
Hope this helps!
