Resolution 1. Click Start, Run and type regedit.exe and press Enter
2. Navigate to the following key:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \ Software \ Policies \ Microsoft \ Windows NT \ SystemRestore
In the right-pane:

  • Delete the value DisableConfig
  • Delete the value DisableSR
3. Exit the Registry Editor.
In Windows XP Professional, you can accomplish the above using Group Policy Editor as well.
1. Click Start, Run and type GPEDIT.MSC
2. Navigate to this path:
-> Computer Configuration
--> Administrative Templates
---> System
----> System Restore
3. Set Turn off System Restore to Not Configured
4. Set Turn off Configuration to Not Configured




For standalone Windows Vista systems, use these steps:
Using the Group Policy Editor
If your edition of Windows Vista includes the Group Policy Editor snap-in (gpedit.msc), follow these steps:
1. Click Start, type gpedit.msc and press ENTER
2. Go to the following branch:
Computer Configuration | Administrative Templates | System | System Restore 3. Double-click Turn off Configuration and set it to Not configured.
Note: If the above setting is already set to Not configured, set it to Enabled and click Apply. Then revert back the setting to Not configured, and click Apply, OK.
4. Exit the Group Policy Editor.
Using the Registry Editor
1. Click Start, type regedit.exe and press ENTER
2. Navigate to the following key:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \ Software \ Policies \ Microsoft \ Windows NT \ SystemRestore 3. In the right-pane, delete the value named DisableConfig
4. Exit the Registry Editor.

If you set the Turn of configuration option to Enabled, the option to configure System Restore on the Configuration Interface disappears. If the Turn off Configuration setting is disabled, the configuration interface is still visible, but all System Restore configuration defaults are enforced, and the Create button is grayed out. If you set it to Not configured, the configuration interface for System Restore remains, and the user has the ability to configure System Restore.

Hi,

The resolution is :-

1. Click Start, Run and type regedit.exe and press Enter
2. Navigate to the following key:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \ Software \ Policies \ Microsoft \ Windows NT \ SystemRestore
In the right-pane:

  • Delete the value DisableConfig
  • Delete the value DisableSR
3. Exit the Registry Editor.
In Windows XP Professional, you can accomplish the above using Group Policy Editor as well.
1. Click Start, Run and type GPEDIT.MSC
2. Navigate to this path:
-> Computer Configuration
--> Administrative Templates
---> System
----> System Restore
3. Set Turn off System Restore to Not Configured
4. Set Turn off Configuration to Not Configured



Note :-
Turn off Configuration corresponds to DisableConfig registry value. With this Policy turned ON, the System Restore tab will remain displayed but the user cannot configure the SR options. It reads disabled by Group Policy.

Any further help, let me know.

Thanks.

SOURCE: my system restore has been turned off by a group

If this machine is on a network then the Admin has done that.

If machine is NOT on a network, then it probably was at some time.

If so to access Admin rights you will need that Admin passwrod to correct things!!

Starting yesterday when i restarted my computer after editing my group police i find my computer is no longer displaying a task bar so i restart explorer and it seems as if it is running in classic shell...


What OS are you running?

Have you tried system restore? or....

Do you have access to the registry editor? (type "REGEDIT" into the run box)

if so then go to this key :
[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies]

there you should see settings for windows explorer and the taskbar.. (a number "0" = setting disabled and a number "1" = setting enabled) just look for the settings related to the taskbar
the settings you are looking for are probably these:

"NoSetTaskbar=1," REG_DWORD 0x00000000 (1) "
"NoTrayContextMenu REG_DWORD 0x00000000 (1)."

Just right click the setting and chose "modify" and change the "1" to a "0" or "delete" the key all together

(I am running windows 7 and all three subkeys under "policies" : EXPLORER , MOBILITY CENTER AND SYSTEM are all empty with no policies set)
better no policy then the wrong policy...lol


if you do not have access to registry then "system restore" option is best .. (if you have somehow edited the group policy preventing you from running system restore then try booting into safe mode and going to the Hidden Administrator account.. and running "system restore" from there... hopefully since that account is usually not used it will hopefully have all of the group policy settings still at their defaults and allow you to restore the system

NOTE: System restore is best option because it replaces the entire registry with a back up copy and all group policy settings are contained within the registry and will be fully restored back the way they were.

if system restore is unavailable then a manual restore operation can be done as a last resort as long as the system restore points have not been deleted... but that is a complicated process that requires putting your hard drive into another computer and manually moving the right files to the correct locations (definitely an expert task...lol).

How do i turn on the system restore point since the box where it says " Turn off System Restore ( disabled by Group Policy) was checked and there's no way to uncheck it?


Right click on "My Computer" (XP) and scroll down to "Properties". System Restore should be right over the General tab and just un-check "Turn Off" and click Apply. Click here for a tutorial for Win 7 and Vista http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials/330-system-protection-turn-off.html

More Information

Turn off System Restore corresponds to DisableSR registry value. With this Policy is turned ON, the System Restore tab may be missing in My Computer Properties. Also, when you run System Restore (rstrui.exe), you receive this message:

System Restore has been turned off by group policy. To turn on System Restore, contact your domain Administrator.

Turn off Configuration corresponds to DisableConfig registry value. With this Policy turned ON, the System Restore tab will remain displayed but the user cannot configure the SR options. It reads disabled by Group Policy.

Or perhaps you can review this
Control of System Restore function has been disabled by "Group Policy".
How do regain control?Go to Start>Run, key in gpedit.msc and hit ENTER. Under Computer
Configuration, expand Administrative Templates, expand System, then click on
the System Restore folder. In the right-hand pane, double-click on Turn off
Configuration and, under the Setting tab, click in the radio button beside
Not Configured. Click on Apply then OK.

Please visit the following Microsoft Knowledge Base website
and review the topic titled: "Method 1: Use Group Policy".

How to Disable the System Restore Configuration User Interface
http://support.microsoft.com/default.asp…

Note: You must be an administrator or owner, or have administrative
privileges to perform this task.

Undo the changes using Group Policy Editor (Gpedit.msc)

-or-

Open Registry Editor and navigate to:

HKEY LOCAL MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Wind… NT\SystemRestore

In the right-pane, delete the value "DisableConfig".
Close Registry Editor
Close and re-open the System Restore properties page.


Note: Group Policy Editor is only Available in XP Professional (according to http://www.pcreview.co.uk/forums/thread-…
