Default OH NO! Immediate help required with system restore

I have lost system restore! I have no idea where it is, it's not in system tools and search won't bring it up!

Under the c drive settings it is still set to save restore points and stuff but I can't find the tool itself!

Where is it? How can I get it back?

many thanks, I have no problems but if sods law happens and something goes wrong I'm in big trouble,

Thanks guys

Tone

IF you're using Win XP (SP2) then it's in: Control Panel - System - System Restore (Tab on top)

yes, that tab is there, but it is only the options to turn it on or off and to set the amount of space to use.

There is no option to open the tool itself

thanks
