I can't create a restore point on my laptop, when I try to createit, it deletes somehow on its own, Microsoft support even helped us, they tried to upgrade windows it didn't work and try to do a check disks and didn't work. So now we don't know what's causing this. Is my hard drive corrupted?

Usually, System Restore will become corrupted if your computer has a virus and you do the Restore before removing the virus. This will cause the virus to simply corrupt the Restore Files. You will need to Turn Off System Restore and do a thorough virus scan on your computer. Then re-start and THEN turn System Restore back on and run.

It is probably your hard drive is corrupted. If it just has corrupted data on it, you would be able to format the drive and re-install the OS.
