Cannot Create System Restore Point Because Cannot Turn On System Protection

Windows XP

Asked by: Curmudgeon10

In Control Panel/System/System Properties/System Protection, "Available Drives," all that is listed is "Searching..."  No drives are located, so no System Restore point can be established.

How to fix?

I have an extensive active thread in another area of the community dealing with the failure of this PC to install the latest Windows 10 update.  Prior to executing the next suggested step to fix that problem I need to create a System Restore point, so a solution to this issue must be found before I can move forward on the major problem.

YES, I have ALREADY run the SFC Command as Administrator and the report was that everything was A-OK.
