Windows 7: system restore

system restore

Curious, I attempted to open system resore - got a message back that I did not have a restore point, I should create one.
I always had a restore point, what would have caused it to be deleted? I did create a new restore point and it did open, but what would have caused the other to be uninstalled/deleted? Need to be overly cautious now.

Hello mate now have you done a disk clean up recently and used the Advanced clean button because that will delete restore points ? I am guessing that you have but in case not did you check the restore points that go further back? see pic
Have you checked (and I am guessing you have ) these - if not please do
