Sounds like the System Restore database is corrupted. First thing is to do full scans for malware, viruses, and spyware.
When you're sure your system is clean, go to System control panel. Click System Restore tab and put a check in the box to turn off System Restore. Click OK and confirm. Reboot the PC. That will delete the System Restore database -it's corrupted and useless so you need to delete it. Now go back to the System Restore tab in the System control panel and uncheck that box to re-enable System Restore.
Reboot again and manually set a Restore point. Now use that Restore point to restore the system to confirm that System Restore is working again.
And if you post the details of the problem you were trying to fix, maybe somebody can help you solve that one too.
