JSI Tip 4577. The Windows XP System Restore calendar is missing?

When you run the System Restore tool, %Windir%\System32\Restore\Rstrui.exe, the calendar that lets you Choose a Restore Point is missing?

Mostly likely, the .htc (Hypertext Markup Language (HTML) component) association is missing or corrupt.

To fix the problem, copy / paste the following into a .reg file and double-click it:

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

"Content Type"="text/x-component"

\[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\MIME\Database\Content Type\text/x-component\]

@="Microsoft Html Component"

"Content Type"="text/x-component"
