Question about Operating Systems
I can not create a restore point, because the system protection tab is missing under system properties. The only tabs available are Computer name,hardware,advanced,and remote.
However I can run system restore to rollback to a restore point.
Is there a way to fix the registry to make it (the system protection tab) show up?
I have not tried the restore function , yet. I really do not want to because except for this the computer runs great. thanks.

Tom, I had your same problem as I reported earlier and I feel now I can contribute to a solution instead of searching for answers. And boy, did I search.
I had some memory errors around this time but did not notice the "System Protection" tab missing until after I installed the SP1 update. I'm running Vista Ultimate 64 on a Polywell with an AMD 6000 chip (what a screamer).
Now to how I fixed my problem. Basically I had to go into the Group Policies which I never do and toggle a couple settings. Policy and/or Registry changes are only for the real brave so take caution. The web site I found that explains the process is:
here. I hope that link comes out but just in case it is "http://www.winhelponline.com/articles/216/1/Restore-point-creation-disabled-by-Group-Policy.html".
I'm not sure if it is needed or not but I toggled the "Turn off System Restore" also by changing to "Enabled" and then back to "Not Configured". After a reboot my "System Properties" show up and I hope it works for you.
As a side note I noticed that all things I looked at in the Group Policies was "Not configured". Maybe some Active Directory guru can comment on that.
Good luck, Nick

Open System by clicking the Start button , clicking Control Panel, clickingSystem and Maintenance, and then clicking System.
In the left pane, click System Protection. If you are prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.
To turn on System Protection for a hard disk, select the check box next to the disk, and then click OK.
Hope this helps
