It could be system restore is turned off Start>contol panel>system> system restore tab.

Or the service is not running Start>run>type "services.msc.

Look in the list for system restore it should be set to automatic.

If either of these is turned off it won't work but I am afraid its to late because the restore point would not have been saved. This is more for future referance.

You maybe better off posting this over in the XP forum, would you like it moved?

Try doing a search for sr.inf and when found, right click it and select "Install"

You may be asked for the XP install cd.
