I've never seen Vista "automatically" start System Restore without
user input, and I never seen it recommend using anything but the
most recent restore point. You have to manually pick an older
restore point. If this actually happened the way you suggest, then
you probably need to reinstall Vista. Or do a "repair install".
Do you see any other restore points listed?
Copy/paste "rstrui.exe" into Start Search, press
enter. Allow any nag prompts that pop up.
You'll see "Recommended restore" already
checked. Below that is, "Choose a different restore point".
Check that and click "Next". What's listed there?
