System Restore Can't Restore

When I try to restore to an earlier point (whether earlier today or 1 month ago), the System Restore runs, reboots, then says it can't restore to the point and no changes have been made.  How can I fix this problem???

Boot your machine to "Safe Mode". (Press F8 while Windows Boots)
Then run System Restore while you are in Safe Mode.
This almost always solves this problem for me.
