Try going into safe mode and restore from there. To load Windows in safe mode, start your PC and tap the F8 key repeatedly before Windows starts loading. You should get to a screen where you can select safe mode.

Answer

sometimes antivirus programs prevent any attempt to alter the system even via system restore.

ironically, some anti virus programs will destabilze or even crash the os if they are forced to be altered via system restore.

my suggestion is to execute a clean boot of xp and see if your system stabilizes overall.
