System restore fails

For the past couple of months system restore has been failing. I get the
helpful message that my 'computer cannot be restored' to the selected time.
There are some 10 restore points available and none seem to work. I have
Win XP Pro sp3 fully updated. I have attempted a clean boot but always
encounter the error 'access denied' when trying to disable or enable
services.

Any help gratefully received. John.

Not using Norton Internet Security by any chance are you?

Thanks but safe mode does not help.
