Conditions tab of the Task Properties or Create Task dialog box is greyed out.

I have no history. Even though it is set at the default to create a restore point at 12 am it has not been doing so

Did you try to open the cmd prompt "run as administrator" and run SFC /SCANNOW and reboot?

Start menu ----> type cmd ----> Press Ctrl + Shift + Enter-----> Select Yes -----> Type SFC SCANNOW

I did what you suggested. Scan showed no problems.

Now I want to go back to Conditions tab of the Task Properties or Create Task dialog box but I don't remember how. Can you help me please?

If you trying to perform this from the task scheduler

windows key + r  ------> type: control schedtasks

Create Task is on the Right side under the Actions Menu

Hit the  windows key + r

Type: control schedtasks
Run dialogue box
Now navigate to the location: Task Scheduler Library ---> Microsoft ---> Windows ---> System Restore
Task Scheduler WindowNow double click on the SR task -----> Triggers Tab
You will be able to change how the restore point reacts.  
System Restore LocationYou can click on Daily Trigger and click Edit.  Notice you can change the time, how often it runs and how many time it recur doing that process. If you make changes now you can click OK
Daily TriggerNow you can highlight the "At Startup Trigger "and click edit if you want too.   You can click OK once you are finish.  You will notice that it gives you less options then the above option.
At Start Up Trigger Now click on the Conditions tab. This allows you change the condition on which the Restore Point will start if these conditions are met.
Condition TabNow you can click on the History tab once it has ran to check and make sure it is running when it is suppose too.
