Each time I try to create a restore points from the System Properties, I end up with this image.
What can I do to "reset" the settings on this feature (or something like that) Thanks!

Well, for starters it did not find any disk/partition. Can you post a picture of your Disk Management to see what might be wrong?

Can you tell what could be wrong by looking at this screenshot of Disk Management? I hope you can...

Those partitions look normal. My next guess would be that your "Microsoft Software Shadow Copy Provider" is not set to "Manual". Please check that in Services.
