To turn on System Restore, contact your Domain

Running XP Home. All of a sudden, System Restore is gone, and I get this
message:

To turn on System Restore, contact your Domain administrator.

I am the administrator. Further research tells me to run:

gpedit.msc

This yields "Windows cannot find..."

What can I do?

TIA

Well, I used regedit, and followed the directions as if I used gpedit.
That is, I deleted the values at HKLM/software/policies/microsoft/system
restore. I then restarted, and System Restore was in the control panel,
where 'turn off system restore' was checked, so I unchecked this. I have
no prior restore points, though. I have no idea what happened to turn it
off.
