System Restore does not appear to be functioning correctly on this system

I'm running Windows 7 as a virtual machine in a Parallels for Mac environment. (For the purposes of this question, I'm running a Windows 7 machine.) I tried to install QuickBooks Premier in the Windows 7 environment and it gorked my Windows 7 install. (That's not the first time I've seen a QB install gork a computer.) Anyway, I'd like to do a system restore, but System Restore is gorked as well. See the image below. Suggestions?

It is unlikely a QuickBooks problem. I have not seen that on any QB computer on all my clients or my own computers (both of which have QuickBooks).

First, make sure all Windows updates including Recommended updates have been done. Windows 7 sometimes left .NET Framework updates behind. Open Windows Updates and ensure all critical AND recommended updates are complete. Restart after this.

Now open an admin command prompt and run SFC /SCANNOW. Allow to complete and restart again.

See if Restore works. If not, it could have been corrupted. See if you can remove all restore points (advanced system properties). Restart. Now there won't be any restore points (we just deleted them). But you can see if the error persists.

Side idea..
Please check your system restore settings space allocated to use.
If the amount of disc spaced has been reached it will begin to delete the previous in order to create a new.
R/click computer > properties on the left panel advanced settings>system protection tab>configure
system restore configure

I have to confess, I finally resorted to a reinstall.

Thanks for the posts.
