Like kemical stated, if you're running with any security products, temporarily disable them and try again.
If this doesn't work, it's possible the restore points are corrupted.

Anit virus&Firewall off.
Thank You

If you are unable to use system restore from safemode perhaps booting from the windows 7 DVD might be an answer: You should be able to do any of the following after booting with the Install DVD
Startup Repair - System Restore - Complete PC Restore From Backup Image - Windows Memory Diagnostic Tool and - Command Prompt
