It could be that the restore points are also corrupt. Why are you doing a restore in the first place? Is it cause of a virus or just cause you installed something that in turn corrupted your system? I am thinking it sounds like a virus or malware since you cant use any restore point. Check for viruses and spyware/malware and see if you get anything.

Aren't your pictues stored in a folder? Nothing should happen to them.

You might have to many restore points. Delete some and try again
