Funny you should say that, as that is what happened to me with XP Pro on the same day.

However I thought it was just coincidence as by default System Restore deletes restore points after 90 days. Then it starts again making a restore point each day.

So I'm not sure which is the chicken or the egg, it could be MS playing games!

The interval between deletes can be changed in the Registry by altering the value of RPLifeInterval (its in secxonds)

...."seconds" :) , like 7,776,000 for 90 days.
