System restore problem in XP
I am unable to start System Restore. When I click on the system restore tab, I get the following message from rundll:
An exception occurred while trying to run "D:\windows\system32\shell32.DLL,Control_RunDLL "D:\windows\system32\sysdm.cpl",System"
Windows XP is on the D drive, a SCSI hard drive on an Adaptec controller. The boot sequence starts on a FAT32 C drive. During startup, control is passed from the C drive to the D drive. System restore should be operating on both drives, and both show up in Computer Management.
After startup the event viewer shows two errors -- The System Restore Service terminated because the system cannot find the path specified and the System Restore initialization process failed. Both shell32.DLL and sysdm.cpl exist in the system32 directory.
Any advice is welcome. Thanks.
