Why no system restore?

A registry defragmentor program caused my sysem to not be able to boot.  The system could not repair itself either.  I also tried last known good configuration without results.  I tried to do a system restore and had a number of restore points to choose from, but every one I chose gave me an exclamation mark and I could not put a check mark in the C Windows box.  I was able to get my system back using another backup routine (image) I was using, but this backup was 3.5 weeks old and I had 3 restore points for 3 days ago.  So what might I do to get this working  in case a similar event happens and my system is unrepairable via the repair tool presented.  Windows 7 home premium 64 bit.

Thanks

I was able to do a system restore using a rescue disk I created.  Hopefully this will work again if for some reason my computer will not boot.

Did this solve your problem?

Sorry this didn't help.
