Question about Computers & Internet
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
