There are several reasons why the System Restore option won't appear in Windows XP.
When you open System in the Control Panel, the only options available are General => Network Identification => Hardware => User Profile => Advanced. There is no mention of System Restore. This could be because you have logged on as a guest user, or limits have been placed on your administrative rights as a user.
You can tell if you have administrative rights by clicking the User Accounts in the Control Panel. If you are an Administrator, you will have access to the User Accounts and be able to change the rights of the other listed users. But if you see a message saying that you need to be an Administrator, you have to log on by entering the Administrator's password at start-up. You will have had the chance to register as the Administrator when Windows XP was installed. Otherwise, the only way to log on as an Administrator is to obtain the log-on password from the person who has administrative rights.
A virus such as the Blaster worm also has the ability to prevent System Restore from working. If you see the following cryptic message when you attempt to open System, there is an excellent chance that the system has been infected with the Blaster worm:
"Rundll32.exe Entry Point Not Found. The procedure entry point RemoteAssistancePrepareSystemRestore could not be located in the dynamic link library WINSTA.dll."
There is information on Microsoft's site on how to deal with the Blaster worm. You can also look up this worm at sites such as Trend's at http://www.trendmicro.com/us/index.html.
Another reason why the System Restore tab can go missing is if some system files somehow go missing or become corrupt. Luckily, there is a way to restore the missing or corrupt files.
1. - In the Tools menu in My Computer, choose Folder Options on the View tab, place a checkmark in the Hide extensions for known file types option, and click OK.
2. - From the Start menu, click Run, and in the Open box enter %windir%\inf.
3. - You should see plenty of files. Scroll down the list until you come to one called sr.inf. Right click on this file's entry, and then click Install from the list of options. Windows XP will ask for its CD to be inserted into the CD-ROM drive, and all you have to do is follow the steps and the System Restore feature will be restored.
