Hello, I am trying to clean up my PC and boost its performance and needed to create a Restore Point. have done this on other PC's many times over the eyars, but here I get a message that the System Restore has been truned off. Certainly don't remember doing so but I followed Windows step by step guide and find that in Computer> Properties> System Properties there is no System Restore tab?
Anyone have any ideas where I might find this on xp?

Go to run and type

regedit and click ok

Navigate to this path

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Windows NT\SystemRestore

On the right side

Delete following keys

Restart,you should get back your system restore tab
