XP System Retore won't let me even make a new point

Hi to all you wonderful people, have read some of the answers re:- system
restore, but non of the questions seem to fit my problem.

Windows XP Home Edition Version 2002 Service Pack 2

When I open up it originally gave me the option of todays date and the
previous restore point was March 21st and backwards from there. Non of them
worked. I tried to make a new restore point for today and it said

"System restore is not able to create a store point. Please restart the
computer, and then run system restore again"

I tried this several times, still no luck. Went to microsoft and ended up
here. I read a couple of posts that gave me hope, so I switched off the
system restore, rebooted, in the hope of starting afresh, again, no such
luck. Still the same message comes up. I have checked that the Task Manager
and the System Restore are running and it appears they are.

I have read further that I really need to keep these restore points up to
date, and which I will do so if I can get them working, any ideas good folk.

Marc, thank you for taking the time to give me those two links. I have
actually found the right place here under XP/ windows. I should have looked
round more carefully, thank you again for your time.
