Hi 2babs,
First see if the restore process is running.

Open a command window (start >run >cmd {enter})
Type net start {enter} to see if the service is running
If its not
1. Click Start, click Control Panel, and then click "Performance and Maintenance".
2. Click Administrative Tools, click Computer Management, and then click Services and Applications.
3. Click Services, and then click System Restore Services.
4. This will tell you if the service is running.

If it isn’t you can right click it and select start (look in the properties to ensure it isn’t disabled)

Try checking last known good configuration and see if that would work

for that reboot your machine and press F8 and after getting the boot menu , select Last known good configuration..

Have you also tried all the possible prior dates and do you get the same thing as to cannot be restored ?

Also if nothing works out you may have to reinstall system restore

Start ---> Run  --->c:\windows\inf
 in the INF folder, look for SR.INF
 Rightclick on SR.INF and left click on Install
insert the XP disk if prompted and it will reinstall system restore
