It did work about 3 months ago. Im stumped. Ive tried uninstalling MSE and Ccleaner but still doesnt work. Any ideas`?

If you go to the Control Panel, System and select System Protection, under the System Protection tab, do you show Protection as being ON?

Under the Configure button, you will be given the opportunity to delete all prior restore points. If you can't get your system to work, you might try that.

Hi, Thanks for your reply, System protection was on and i tried deleting all restore points the other day and to no avail. I tried it again today and still the same error message. Thanks again
