System Restore Point very slow...

and cannot find any restore points. It took 5 hours last night before the
protection dialog box indicated that there were no restore points.

I receive the following error in the Applications log:

Volume Shadow Copy Service error: Error creating the Shadow Copy Provider
COM class with CLSID {65ee1dba-8ff4-4a58-ac1c-3470ee2f376a} [0x80080005].

I have tried to use:

vssadmin list shadowcopy

from a command line and it searches for a long time...not done yet.

Five hours! You should have stopped the attempt after about 5 minutes.

Anyway, since you have no Restore Points anyway, I would DISABLE system
restore, reboot, then ENABLE it again to reset it. That should work, unless
your system is really messed up. Good luck.

Thanks, I'm afraid that the problem was larger than just the restore point.
I am reinstalling Vista now...
