    System restore broken

    Since yesterday my vista system restore is officially broken. it does
    create restore points, but when I try to return the system to

    any of them I get this message:
    Failed to initiate System Restore (test).

    The system scan did not find any problem
    How to repair the operating system and how to restore the operating system configuration to an earlier point in time in Windows Vista

    Google didn't help either. If not that it may be related to some
    install or uninstall gone bad.

    System Restore has probably gotten corrupted. Turn off System Restore (you
    will lose your restore points), reboot, and turn it back on.
