Q: Error with System Restore Configuration in Windows 7

Hi Everyone,

I have System Restore enabled on my Windows 7 Computer however there are 0 bytes allocated to Restore Points -

When I attempt to allocate space I am met with the following -

I click OK and then...

I do have adequate space on my drive -

I have tried turning System Restore On & Off and this has not improved the situation.

Any advice will be greatly appreciated.

Help!
Had an incomplete install of a program...computer otherwise working fine...did a system restore to try to go back to preinstall...in the system restore shutdown and restart, now hung up in a update configuation loop that is in third step up to 99% that shuts down only to do the same thing over and over again. So my system never gets to the mainscreen acknowledging system was restored.
I tried F8 going to safe mode, but configuation step 3 takes over again, goes to 99% and shuts down to restart.
I tried the vista 64 sp1 disc...cannot acccess another restore point since it says the system is already in restore mode....just never gets there with the endless 3rd step update configuration loop.
The disc also does not offer the repair/update mode as an option...only full install.
I do have norton ghost 14 on the system...so there is a complete backup file on another internal drive...but no way to get to it to initiate a recovery.
VERY FRUSTRATING!!!
Could time remedy the situation...letting the computer lay idle for a few days...then try to boot up??? I've heard that this on occaision could work with Vista.
Any other thoughts???
Thanks!

BTW, computer is a hp desktop with Vista Ultimate 64 sp1, 4 gb ram, and intel dual core processor, with a bunch of bells and whistles.

I just recently ran a System Recovery on my Windows XP Home Edition SP3 computer and after the recovery is done I restarted the system and then this message shows up and I'm stuck here.

I don't have any disc that came with the computer because that was a very long time ago already. I tried to download the "Windows XP Home Edition Set Up Disk for Floppy Boot Installation" from Microsoft but I can't run the ff:

Windows XP Home Edition
Windows XP Home Edition SP1
Windows XP Home Edition SP2

I can't create the Set Up Disk For Home Edition, SP1, and SP2 because this computer I'm using right now is a 64 bit and no floppy disk drive. That's why I downloaded this instead:
Windows XP Service Pack 3 - ISO-9660 CD Image File
from:

http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/en/details.aspx?FamilyID=2fcde6ce-b5fb-4488-8c50-fe22559d164e&displaylang=en

I burned it to a DVD ROM but I don't know what to do next. After burning I reinserted the disc to this computer and the autorun activated. Then I inserted the disc to my Windows XP which has "System Configuration Error" and tried to reboot it but theres no autoplay or anything the computer still goes through the "System Configuration Error" message and I don't know how to access the set up disc. What should I do? Help please..

I have a major problem. Spybot Search and Destroy had finished scanning my computer (Dell Dimension e520 running Windows XP service pack 2). I then clicked on it to fix the problems it found, and started doing something else on Tradestation. A short time later, a message popped up on my screen that I had never seen before. It basically said there was a system fault, that my computer was going to reboot in 60 seconds, and that I should save all my work. The only thing I remember about the message was that it said something about "NT" system fault or error fault or something like that and a timer counted down from 60 seconds. There was no way for me to cancel it. A separate message from Spybot also popped up. I don't recall what it said other than it asking me if I wanted it to start automatically before everything loaded up the next time I started my computer because of something it had found or that had occurred. But I wasn't able to click OK before the time ran out because I was too busy trying to figure out why I was getting these messages and save my work at the same time.

My computer then rebooted. However, while Windows was loading, it stopped and gave an error message stating that a particular file (hal.dll) was missing or corrupt. On my computer I have the hard drive partitioned into two drives, C: and E:. Both have Windows on them, but the E: drive is the main drive. When I reboot my computer, it asks me from which drive I want to start Windows. I... Read more

Unfortunately, I believe I'll need to do one of the above to get everything back to normal. A partial list of some of the recent changes made to my laptop include installing numerous MS updates, WMP11, all updated drivers...and uninstalling many unused applications. Some of these were later reinstalled and updated, too many to list.The main problem relates to no audio from the CD/DVD now, or from WMP 10 or 11, though SonicStage plays audio fine. I also get error msgs on boot up, related to Realtek HD Audio, that state:RTHDCPL.EXE ...Application failed to initialize (0xc00000033)ALCWZRD.EXE...Application failed to initialize (0xc00000033)ALCMTR.EXE...Application failed to initialize (0xc00000033)I've tried rolling back the driver, uninstalling the driver, etc. Device indicates "it's working properly," yet clearly something is amiss. I've never been alerted that I was missing key system drivers, or that some service needed to be enabled, etc., yet wonder if Registry Mechanic (which I've used a few times in many months) may've screwed something up. I've tried a long list of fixes over about a week, including contacting Sony Support, which was of little help: they simply said to use Last Known Good Config (LKGC) or pick a Restore Point. Swell.(1) As I understand it, LKGC doesn't fix missing or corrupted files, drivers, etc., and don't think one gets to choose that "LKGC" either. It's probably whatever the syste... Read more

(2) Viewing Restore Point choices, I find it doesn't go back beyond Oct. 10, 2007-- three days ago. Restoring to the 10th would NOT correct the problem, and why there are points further back in time is a mystery to me. I turned it off briefly last week, to permanently delete a file I didn't want showing up in a future restore, but it'd been on all the time before that. It won't even let me go back into September, let alone months ago. So, this option appears as useless as tits on a rooster. Right or wrong?Correction:"Restoring to the 10th would NOT correct the problem, and why there are no points further back in time is a mystery to me.

Insert Windows Installation disk and restart computer
Choose language settings
Click “repair computer”
Boot \BCD
Status:: 0xc000000f

BECAUSE I DO NOT HAVE A Windows INSTALLATION DISK, I TRIED TO BOOT USING A RECOVERY CD.  IT DID NOT BOOT AND REQUESTED A SYSTEM IMAGE TO REPLACE THE SYSTEM.   I DO NOT HAVE A SYSTEM IMAGE ON CD OR DVD.
 

I THEN MANAGED TO GET INTO WinRE (RECOVERY ENVIRONMENT) AND TO MAKE A BACKUP OF MY DOCUMENTS.  I RAN THE CHECK DISK OPTION AND NO PROBLEMS WERE FOUND.  I THEN ATTEMPTED TWICE TO RESTORE THE SYSTEM TO TWO DIFFERENT POINTS IN THE PAST.  IN BOTH CASES RESTORE FAILED AND PRODUCED THE FOLLOWING ERROR MESSAGE:

So my laptop has a bunch of problems. It started out as a virus infection then I found out more problems.

First of all, thank you to Broni for directing me to the thread that tells me to run DSS.

I can't run a systems restore. I get the 0x800700B7 error. As well, Systems Restore says that I've never had a Systems Restore done before, which I think is odd, because I recall seeing Systems Restores created last time I checked (maybe a year ago?)

I also can't turn on Windows Firewall. I get the "Windows can't start the Mpssvc" message.

A:Windows update error 80070002 and System restore error (Both)

I was getting that same error - and saying "cannot search for updates".

I tried the Fixit tool and command prompts - suggested by Microsoft - nothing worked.

I finally called Microsoft - 1 - 800 - Microsoft and they did a remote on my comp and the problem is solved, at least for now.

There is no charge for this service.

As for System Restore, make sure you have set a Restore Point.
Go to Start and type system restore.
Go to " Create a restore point".

See if your C drive says "on" and if not click Configure.

I have had a problem with windows vista coming up with an error and not starting up. I have figured out how to fix this and since it has been appearing on forums i thought it would be a good idea to put a fix for it here.
If you have this problem with system restore coming up with this message:

There was an unexpected error

The file name, directory name or volume label syntax is incorrect
(0x8007007B)
System restore will now close

Don't panic, check on your computer if you have two hard drives (partitioned into 2) one default named as Partition 1 and the other should be named as Recovery. Go to start click on Computer then click system properties along the toolbar. Then go to system protection and look under the heading system restore points, uncheck the Recovery drive and check partition one (the hard drive which your OS is stored on) Then system restore will work properly and all you have to do is create your restore point from the same screen.

I couldn't find any other fixes on the internet so i hope this comes in useful,

I was Stumbling the other day when all of the sudden my screen filled up with dozens of error messages and my laptop froze up and shut down. I currently own a Dell Laptop runnings Windows 7, purchased almost a year ago. Usually if something like this happens I just use system restore, however when I try and do it it shows me -system-restore-error-0x8000ffff -Corrupt Hard Drive- when the computer boots back up after going through the restore process. Ever since this happened none of my programs appear on my computer like Microsoft Word for example. When I go to the Start tab all my old file folders are completely empty. I read somewhere that I might need to re-install windows however I purchased the lap top directly through dell and I never got the installation CD.

Hi, hoping you can help....

I attempted to do a system restore as my laptop (Sony Vaio VGN-NW26M) was very slow and the internet browser was not working. No scans or diagnostics showed up any problems.

Halfway through the system restore the laptop crashed and restarted. I was then confronted with the error message
"Bootmgr missing, press Ctrl+alt+del"

I tried to boot the laptop using a recovery disc, however I get as far as the blue welcome screen and I get the error 0x4001100200001012 - the computer then restarts.

I am not bothered about any of the data - I have backed it all up. Any ideas more than welcome as to how to get it up and running again.....FAR too stressful!

OK I am having major problms with System Restore for my HP Pavilion Windows 7 Home Premium desktop PC. Here's wht happens-

If I try and create a restore point I get Error 0x8004231F insufficient storage space for shadow copy. RAM is over 800 megs.

There are no restore points and I cannot create any more either.

I also get these errors from time to time when trying to system restore-

Error 0x80073AFD and Error 0x8000FFFF Missing MUI File(s) but what MUI Files are missing or how I can find them and reinstall the damned things it does not tell me!

I use Norton SS and various other security softwares. One other post here suggested upgrading my Real Player which I did and although it's a nicer player and i like it better it did nothin to allow me to find my shadow copy pages or fix my restore points issue or even allow me to use system restore.

I had a problem with Norton which came up with false readings under registry issues and an Error 2147212513 could not create a restore point in system restore. They did try and fix my PC and I think they screwed up system restore when they did but they of course deny it! Can someone PLEASE tell me what the oni to do to get my system restore back up and running again and how to make it create restore points and how to do this shadow copy crap?? Thanks I hope- keimanzero

Hello all,

I am new to this forum but I have been looking quite extensively through existing threads to hopefully find an answer to such a ridiculous problem (i.e. I've done my reading). With that said, I have attempted some of the advice that some of you have offered but to no avail.

So this is my situation: I have been trying to restore my Windows 8.1 64 bit PC to an earlier date, prior to installing Lenovo Power Manager 7.0 (Windows 7 version) on my Lenovo T450s . Although it has been running quite fine at times in Windows 7 Compatibilty mode, it still has issues as it doesn't remember my battery settings when I bring the PC back from hibernate mode. Anyway, I can't uninstall it the traditional way (i.e. there is no uninstall option) and don't want it on my PC anymore; so System Restore is my only desirable option at this point as I would prefer not to have to "Refresh" or Reset it back to manufacturer settings. However, System Restore is not working (this is my first time trying to use it). Every time that I try to, I get an error that "system restore could not be completed and nothing was changed", blah, blah, blah with an error code 0x80070571. [BTW, initially, the error code was 0x80070005 but through all the tweaking/changes I've attempted so far, somehow it evolved to the other.]

These are the measures I have taken with unsuccessful results:

A:Windows 8.1 System Restore failing, error 0x80070571

I'm not sure what good a system restore is, if you couldn't uninstall in the first place. It seems Power Manager 7 was for Windows 7 and below so it may not be working in compatibility mode. There are a few topics on this in Lenovo forums. Have you tried this, to uninstall ?

Run "C:\Program Files (x86)\InstallShield Installation Information\{DAC01CEE-5BAE-42D5-81FC-B687E84E8405}\Setup.exe" -l0x9 -AddRemove from an administrative command prompt. or in C:\swtools\readyapps\pwrmgrv directory Command line: "c:\swtools\readyapps\pwrmgrv\setup.exe -l0x9 -AddRemove"

If this works, there is a Lenovo Power Manager driver for T450S Windows 8.1 here. If not, you may be able to install it over the 7 driver and it may uninstall the old version for you - Lenovo Power Management Driver for Windows 8.1 (32-bit, 64-bit) - Laptop - Lenovo Support (US)

System Restore did not complete successfully. Your computer's files and settings were not changed.

Details:
System Restore failed while scanning the file system on the drive D:\
The drive might be corrupt. You might want to retry System Restore after running chkdsk/R on this disk.

I have tried doing a startup repair and it found no errors. I have also tried chkdsk /R on all partitions and tried the SFC which found no errors.

I was also getting this error when i tried to run system restore from within windows but I found a hotfix from microsoft which solved that issue. So it's just the problem running it from Windows RE now.

Can anyone please help with this? As I am unsure how to fix it.

Hey guys and gals,

I am new to the forum, (please be gentle), so I wanted to start off, 1st, by saying Hello to everyone out there, and in here.

Now on to the issue I have run into.

** I am currently running WIN 7 Ultimate 64 Bit RTM **

Every single time I try to use system restore, it comes back with the exact same error, on reboot:

{"System restore did not complete successfully. Your computer's system files and settings were not changed.

Details:

Unspecified error occurred during System Restore. (0xc0000043)"}
I have tried different system restore points, (within Windows), but it does not seem to fix the issue.

I have also tried disabling my security software, (KIS 2010), and that doesn't seem to help either.

The puzzling thing is that when I run system restore in safe mode it seems to work no problem, but it just will not work within windows itself, (normal boot).
Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you very much in advance.

A:Constant System Restore Error - Windows 7 Ultimate RTM

Welcome to the forum,

You may want to run sfc /scannow this will scan all your system file integrity and replace damaged/changed or missing files.

I recently downloaded divx, it was a nightmare to uninstall, so on the advice of a forum I used revo uninstaller to get rid of it. When I then uninstalled revo it all went wrong.

I'm not very good with computers, so bear with me. My internet now says it isn't connected when it is, a lot of my control panel isn't working, and my sound card wont play on spotify. I attempted system restore but it comes up with unexpected error 0x80042302.

I'm very worried about this as I'm not sure what to do and I need my computer for work.

I found this thread: http://forums.techguy.org/windows-7/968500-solved-windows-update-windows-system.html

Where someone seemed to have the same problem and it was solved by 'reinstalling.' Forgive my ignorance, but does that mean reinstalling windows 7? and if so, how do I go about uninstalling it first? and would I need an external hard drive? I'm having such a nightmare and would be very grateful if anyone could help me.

I don't know if it's relevant but I have Windows 7, 64 bit, and Norton.

Thanks in advance

Hello Bleeping Computer Gurus & other frustrated PC users...
 
In Brief:
 
I am running Windows 7 Home Premium on a Pavillion dv6 HP laptop. I let Windows Update do its thing late last night before I went to sleep (ie: finish installing updates and shut down computer)...when I turned it on today, I got a BSOD - the details: "driver_irql_not_less_or_equal", with a stop error of 0x000000D1, and "ndis.sys" as the file mentioned. The laptop then goes into restart mode, where it goes back to this BSOD, in a loop. I used F8 to get into safe mode, tried to do a System Restore. When it reboots, it goes back into the BSOD loop. So, I enter safe mode again, and get an error message from System Restore saying that it can't finish, b/c it "can't access a file", and give me an error code of 0 x 80070005. I disable my anti-virus software (kaspersky), as the error message suggests, start all over, but get nowhere. I have run scans to test the memory, all is fine. I can't get networking to work in safe mode. I can't get /scannow to work in safe mode. I can't manage to utilize the suggestions I've found on the web b/c I can't run windows normally, just in safe mode.
 
HELP. ME. PLEASE.
 
Thanks.

I have seen solutions to this error when it occurs during creation of a System Image, but I receive it when running a restore of a system image.  Here are the parameters of the problem:
System: Getac rugged laptop with SSD fitted in place of an HDD.  It was running Windows 7 with SP1 before the failed restore.
The System boots using Windows repair disk, but the OS has been trashed by failed restore, so normal boot brings up a missing OS error.
The System image is held on 3 DVDs.
Invoking System restore prompts for DVD #3 to identify the restorable images.
Selecting image for restore prompts for DVD #1.
Approx. 20 mins and 20% into restore, the error message 'Windows backup error accessing remote shared folder 0x8078015B' displays and the restore bombs out.
This process is 100% repeatable and is not dependent on whether the 'reformat and repartition' check box is checked or clear.
There is only one image on the DVD set from which to select the image to restore.
As the BIOS had been updated to lock down (disable) Bluetooth and WiFi for use in a secure environment, the BIOS has been returned to factory defaults in case this was the cause of the problem.

I have a Dell Inspiron 1540 using Windows Vista (32bit I think) and it's been giving a lot of trouble. I decided to wipe the whole computer and start all over, and I have all the discs to go with it.

I have tried to follow the instructions in the manual that came with the computer to do 'Factory Image restore' but after it says to select 'repair your computer' the 'system recovery options' should appear where I should be able to proceed by entering language, then typing ADMINISTRATOR. But this window doesn't appear.
Another window opens instead saying 'Windows error recovery' , and gives an option to open with Windows vista, Windows vista (Yes, twice!!) or safe mode.

Is there another way of wiping the computer to factory settings? Or another way to get to 'system recovery options' so I can continue with the factory image restoration? I have backed up everything so I have nothing to lose, and have all the discs (Operating system, drivers, etc).
I have managed to fix my last laptop by doing a full wipe and reboot, but this is beyond me. Any ideas? Any help would be appreciated!

Today I had a real problem with my Windows Live Mail [Hotmail] account, that caused it to freeze after only 8 of 20 Tasks had been completed in the download process.

After aborting the Live Mail download, I clicked the Errors tab, and was presented with the following Error Message;

I did a Google search for Windows Live Mail Error 0x800C006F, and this is the nearest 'non-solution' that it came up with;

Windows Live Mail Desktop Stuck at Check for new messages on 'Account Name'

I too, attempted to clear the problem with three re-boots of my Laptop...all unsuccessful, and very frustrating.

In desperation and as a last resort, I decided to complete a full System Restore back to the most recent Restore Point [because it was set at an earlier point, prior to the time that the Error Issue surfaced] in my System.

The System Restore was successful, my Windows Live Mail [Hotmail] Accounts have all been fully restored, and are now back to full working order.

I hope that this fix method helps anybody who is hit with the same Error message in their Windows Live Mail [Hotmail] account.

Hello everyone, not sure why but I get an error every time I open the System Restore. I rarely have to use a restore point as I regularly maintain my computer and check for viruses and malware, but I would like to have the option just in case. When I open System Properties, and click the System Protection tab, I get this error and am unable to create a Restore Point. Attached is a screenshot and a DxDiag.txt. Any insight to this problem would be helpful, perhaps I have some windows feature disabled that I might need enabled, I am not sure. I recently did a complete reformat of my hard drive and a fresh install of Windows, maybe two months ago, and somewhere along the line I must have removed/disabled something I need for System Restore. Even third party maintenance software is unable to create restore points, such as TuneUp Utilities 2014, AVG Internet Security 2014, and UVK. I'm sure the fix for this is simple, I am just unaware of it. Thanks in advance.

Yesterday I used the system configuration utility to untick a program in the Startup menu. Is that why I am getting this message now?

If I follow the directions and select the Normal Startup option, will all the services that I have painstakingly turned off over time start running on startup again? Or will it just load the one application it changed?

Could I restore the registry from a few days ago instead? And, if I do that, will the tracking cookies I finally got rid of by setting them to be deleted at start-up reappear?

Another question I have is, what is the utility used for, if not to make changes? Is it just to look at? What good is it then?

My questions are on Windows 7 System Restore, Restore Points and Backups; specifically, potentially using a Backup as a Permanent Restore Point.

Here is the situation...

About a month ago, I did a complete Factory Restore on my HP desktop and returned it to it's factory condition. After removing the bloatware and performing all the necessary Windows Updates, the Factory Restore process went off without any issues.

Today, however, I needed to use System Restore due to an issue I was having with multiple monitors that I just couldn't figure out. So, I went into System Restore and found a "Date andTime" of a restore point that was right around the same time I did the Factory Restore. That Restore Point was also the oldest and since I knew it was a known & good restore point, I decided to use it. That restore point "Description" was labeled "System Image Restore Point" and the "Type" was labeled "Backup." (See Image)



I don't recall setting up or doing any backups although, between Windows Backup, Norton Backup and HP's Backup utilities some type of backup obviously happened. FYI, I hate having all those options, as I'd rather use native Windows tools. In any case, today, I used the System Restore using the System Image Restore Point labeled as Backup and, after performing a few minor Windows Updates, everything went off without a hitch and my monitor problem was solved.

My questions are on Windows 7 System Restore, Restore Points and Backups; specifically, potentially using a Backup as a Permanent Restore Point.

Here is the situation...

About a month ago, I did a complete Factory Restore on my HP desktop and returned it to it's factory condition. After removing the bloatware and performing all the necessary Windows Updates, the Factory Restore process went off without any issues.

Today, however, I needed to use System Restore due to an issue I was having with multiple monitors that I just couldn't figure out. So, I went into System Restore and found a "Date andTime" of a restore point that was right around the same time I did the Factory Restore. That Restore Point was also the oldest and since I knew it was a known & good restore point, I decided to use it. That restore point "Description" was labeled "System Image Restore Point" and the "Type" was labeled "Backup." (See Image)



I don't recall setting up or doing any backups although, between Windows Backup, Norton Backup and HP's Backup utilities some type of backup obviously happened. FYI, I hate having all those options, as I'd rather use native Windows tools. In any case, today, I used the System Restore using the System Image Restore Point labeled as Backup and, after performing a few minor Windows Updates, everything went off without a hitch and my monitor problem was solved.

However, seeing that Restore point b... Read more

ad 1) restore points are in the shadowstorage

ad 2) yes they are overwritten when the shadowstorage is full. You can set the size of the shadowstorage with vssadmin

ad 3) for permanent backups I suggest imaging. There you control the images yourself.

Greetings to everyone. thanks for reading my first post!

I've read on the Web that this "1" that comes up in Windows System Configuration Utility (Windows XP) is potentially harmful to my computer. To that end, I have two basic questions. (1) Is this true and (2) If so, how do I get rid of it? I've already disabled it from WSCU.

Hi everyone. I'm having trouble with my Acer laptop. This is what happened. I recieved an automatic update for IE9. I tryed it out, I did not like the new settings. So, I tryed to delete it, it said that I do not have permission to do that. So I did a System Restore to go back to IE8 and it looked like it was doing it's thing. Then it went into the Blue Error Screen. I turned my laptop off and then back on after a minute or so. Everything looked ok, all the intros still come on but "Windows Vista Home Premium 32bit (Full Version) Login Screen or Welcome Screen" does not load at all. Just stays on a blank black screen with the mouse arrow. I tried using the F8 options on the laptop but they have not done anything so far. SafeMode does not work and apparently there are no Restore Points anymore. No Backups either. Command Prompt still works. I did a scan and it said there is nothing wrong but there is. Should I get the full version of Windows Vista Install Disk and use the Repair option from there? You know where the disk has options like Install, Uninstall, Repair? I'm not talking about a Recovery Disk with the same F8 options as my laptop.

Hi

Ok I borke world recored for formating windows 7 , the last 2 months .
The problem is ;
Windows System restore keep freezing , I'm not trying to do system restore , but when I try to install/remove a software , windows try to create restore point , making the installation/removing prograss freeze , till the process fail , takes about an hour to. Installation/removing will continues after.

This windows is 6 days old , issue keep getting back after each format , sometimes after 2 weeks, sometimes after few days , once happened after installing graphic driver ( was first and only thing installed ) .

Sometimes it works fine after reboot , then refuse to work hour later .

I turned system protection off , the installing/removing works fine.
I tried tracking the issue , but it happens randomly .
Is this another windows 7 bug ?

What could trigger this issue ?
I did full scan , Kasper Sky , Avast ,and Nod32 , system is clean.
Removed Anti viruse .
Reinstalled , repaired windows through upgrade , issue still exist , not fixed.
System restore works fine in safe mode.

Any help , would be appreciated.
Thanks.

A:Windows 7 system restore point. Can't create / restore .

I solved this issue. Might someone els find this thread helpful.

Since it worked in safe mode and not in normal mode , there must be something perventing it from this.
in MSconfig , I unchecked all startup , and all services , except Microsoft services , System point was working fine then, I enabled few services and startup till I found the software causing this issue , it was graphic tweaking tool that comes with graphic card driver (Zotac fire storm ) I unistalled it , but it wasn't enough , I had to remove the startup entry manualy , now system working perfectly .

I hope this methode helps people that suffering from smiliar issue .
Note : If it fail to create restore point in safe mode , probably system file is damaged , and the above might not work.

does anybody know of any good process to follow that will fix this issue and make System Restore usable.

Hi all,

Huge problem regarding permissions on my (massively unstable) PC. I try to run ANYTHING including .dlls with admin permissions and i get a nice little "ding", and error message regarding the relevent .dll and File system error -1073741792, including one just before I get to the logon screen (think it was called "WINMM.dll", which yes, is "microsoft mouse", but my mouse still appears to be working sooooo... confused... lol).

Also, when i try to system restore, I get an unspecified error, code (0x8000ffff). I don't get anymore info, it just apparently can't do it.

All this came about when i started my PC up after changing/installing NOTHING (since it last worked perfectly), and it randomly said the disk integrity of C: (64GB kingston SSD running the OS but no installed programs) had to be checked, before several black screens of text whizzed by, deleting and then repairing registry entries. It has done this once before, (completely different symptoms, but same root cause of this windows integrity checker thingy), but i fixed it by transferring my account files to a new account, deleting the old one, and presto, instant new admin profile with full permissions again, but problem is, what with nothing that requires admin status working, I can't create a new account this time.

I recently backed up some programs on my pc and uninstalled a few. Today I booted windows and noticed my antivirus didn't load on startup.

I navigated to control panel > Administrative tools > System configuration > Startup, only to find that there are no programs listed at all. I didn't disable them, or remove them, but now they are not there.

Unfortunately I cannot see an option to re-add programs to this system configuration startup, so can someone tell me how to do so, or possibly why they were removed in the first place?

A:Windows seven, System configuration startup programs is empty?

You're referring to msconfig>Startup? There are no listings present with boxes for you to check your AV?

In this case I would use System Restore to roll back before this happened.

But first just to be sure run a full scan with Malwarebytes.

Once you roll back to where Startup tab is populated, establish a Clean Boot and run a SFC from Troubleshooting Steps for Windows 7

Hello, This is my first post and I had followed the following tutorials:
Windows 7: Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7
Windows 7: Clean Install Windows 7
Windows 7: SSD / HDD : Optimize for Windows Re-installation

but used MiniTool Partition Wizard free home edition to delete original partitions (mistakenly deleted Dell Utility partition but had made an Macrium image with which to restore - but have not yet tested to see if it works), then created and formatted partitions as below:

40MB (FAT, primary, for Dell Utility) | 204MB System Reserved (NTFS, primary, set active)| C:WinPro_SP1 92GB (NTFS, primary)| 27GB unallocated (intend for some data storage)

and had re-installed Win7 Pro SP1 into C partition, using boot-able USB. The 2nd installation went well and activation accepted. I then processed all Windows Updates (critical/recommended for Windows), updated drivers, installed Kaspersky, Firefox, Foxit PDF reader, Macrium, and MiniTool PW8, created system images through Backup and Restore as I made the above major changes.

Then followed the tutorial: Windows 7: Image your system with free Macrium and just made Macrium WinPE Rescue USB to make a full disk image of all three partitions.

My main concern is that I noticed the System Reserved partition is shown as System, Active, Primary in Disk Management and Boot, Pagefile, Crash Dump, Primary for the C drive(see attached image).

Your partitions look fine to me, same labelling of Active, System and Boot as mine, both in Disk Management and in Partition Wizard. It's certainly a bit confusing that PW reverses the Windows partition labelling for both System and Boot but that's the way it is though imo it's rather more sensible than the Windows labelling.

Anyway you are good to go.

A:Odd New Error In System Restore

Dont know if this is the cause in your situation, but SR can be affected by a virus. The virus writers do not want their virus to be removed, so they remove the SR points to help prevent removal.
Run a full anti virus scan
Download and run a full scan with malwarebytes.
If that is negative try to disable in Safe Mode. Disable often causes the SR to work properly, as it is reset.

When I try ro run system restore an error comes up that says "an unspecified error occurred during system restore" and none of the files were restored. Anyone have any idea why this happened and a solution? Thanks your all the best!!!
 

A:System Restore error

welp- you could try turing off system restore, rebooting, truning it back on, creating a new restore point and seeing if it works then.
but you will lose all points you currently have -so if you need to restore a current point, nope, don't have any ideas...

Hello,
 
Since today I had some problems with my sound. I could hear myself about 5 times when I talked to friends.
 
Next to that there were some issues with my HDD. These errors have been resolved by typing ''chkdsk /R'' in CMD, Although it took 5 hours to complete.
 
But after that I still had the sound issues.
 
So I decided to activate System Restore. Everything went well at the start of System Restore.
 
It rebooted my system, initializes System Restore but after 30 seconds it says the following: ''System Restore is complete''. No way that can be done within 30 seconds.
 
So I waited for the system to bring me back on my desktop and there I saw the following message: ''System Restore has not been completed on C: It could missing files or the drive is damaged. Try chkdsk /R to check for problems''.
 
The following error code has been written: 0x81000204.
 
I am still afraid that there is something seriously wrong with the hardware of my system.
 
I do hope I have informed you well about this issue.
 
Best regards,

A:Error System Restore.

Hi
 
By reading the problem description you posted i strongly doubt your HDD is failed. Running check disk won't fix physical errors on the disc. It's just a tool to fix file system corruption. Taking 5 hour to complete checkdisk is another indication of a failinh HDD.
 
Proper way to test HDD is to run manufacturer's diagnostic tools. Please post a full spec of you system (Motherboard , CPU, HDD , RAM etc ). 
 
Download 'Seatools for DOS' from http://www.seagate.com/support/downloads/item/seatools-dos-master/
 
 Burn the ISO to CD using 'burn image to disc' option.  If you are unsure read this guide :  http://knowledge.seagate.com/articles/en_US/FAQ/201431en
 
Boot from the CD and run a full long test. If your HDD is a Seagate one it may offer to repair the bad sectors. Please choose skip instead. Post the result of scanning in next post.

Hi when i try to restore with system restore I get this error I'm running Windows 7 64 bit.

system Restore failed to extract the original copy of the directory from the restore point.

A:System Restore error.

That is a common problem. Looks like the restore point is corrupted. Try another restore point.

File corruption is commonly caused by a failing hard drive or faulty RAM modules.

A:system restore error

Hi -

The error code shown in the screenshot is exception code 0xc0000022 = STATUS_ACCESS_DENIED

System Restore has been denied access to the restore point(s).

Do you have a 3rd party firewall installed, e.g., NIS, N360, KIS, McAfee, Zone Alarm, COMODO, etc...? If so, remove it using the product manudfacturer's removal tool, if available. Reboot upon completion. Install MSE

Boot into Recovery using your Windows 7 DVD or via the HDD recovery partition and run System Restore from there. The recovery environment runs under the supreme user NT AUTHORITY\SYSTEM and should be able to bypass software restrictions.

Regards. . .

Hello all.

To start it off lastnight i had by accident deleted one of my folder's that had my iso game's saved.

I am currently running dual boot linux mint and windows7 ultimate

Upon me regretting what I did with the folder I decided to do a system restore. While the process was running correctly when my computer restarted it gave me 2 choices one was to repair the system do to the fact that it could not boot it self up and the second was to ignore it and continue to booting in windows.

So I went ahead and rebooted normally into windows when I go to check my iso folder half the game's where missing I tried another restore point and when booting it gave me the same error message so I went ahead and just ignored the repair function and went into windows again and still the iso's where missing

The crazy thing about this is when I booted the computer and ignored the error message the restore pop up box said that the restore was successful both times.

Does this error have something to do with me dual booting and the system can not read the disk correctly? Since linux is the priority in my system when booting up.

A:System restore error

If the ISO files were in a User Folder such as Downloads or somewhere like that, System Restore is programmed to avoid these folders so will explain why it hasnt come back!

I am running Windows XP Pro SP1 and have a problem with System Restore. When trying to launch the app I recieve the following error: Run a dll as an app has encountered a problem... Something is mentioned about the file srrstr.dll. I have found two instances of this file on my drive:
1. WINDOWS\system32 222 KB
2. WINDOWS\servicepackfiles\i386 221 KB

I installed SP1 months ago so I don't think that is the problem.

System Restore unknown error 0x80070057 in eventlog.
My windows 7 home premium x64 is in Dutch so maybe I translate some error messages wrong!

-system restore points are created succesfully (no errors) and I can restore files to "Previous versions"

When doing a system restore to any previous restore point it says something (in dutch) like "initializing system restore" and after some seconds it reboots. System boots succesfully. But when logging in something like "system restore failed when scanning file system C. The disk may be corrupt. Perform chkdsk/R and try system restore again". See attached screenshot

- chkdsk /r /f C: => no problems found
- all restore points fail even new restore points
- removed all restore points on all disks. disabled restore points on all volumes. enabled restore points.
- same problem in "safe mode"
- Same problem in recovery console (F8 at boot, system recovery or something like that)
- restored system image using windows backup (2 weeks old). Same problem. don't have any other backups.

AFAIK recovery console has it's own mini operating system so doesn't use any other files on C-drive, is that correct?

-C drive problem? shadowset problem?

Try reinstalling System Restore.Note: this will erase any prior restore points!You may need your XP Service Pack 2 installation disk for this. If your disk is not Service Pack 2 refer to the folder mentioned below.Go to Start then click Run...paste the following command into the Run.. box:rundll32.exe advpack.dll,LaunchINFSection C:\Windows\Inf\sr.infPress <enter>If the Files Needed dialog box appears, click Browse and point to the i386 folder on the Windows XP CD or to the i386 folder on the hard drive, if it exists. For systems updated with the Service Pack 2 CD or Download from Microsoft, browse to the C:\Windows\ServicePackFiles\i386 folder. The retail version of Windows XP (SP2) also contains the latest version of the files needed. These are the files needed to perform the reinstall: FILE NAME:FILELIST.XMLRSTRUI.EXESR.SYSSRCLIENT.DLLSRDIAG.EXESRFRAME.MMFSRRSTR.DLLSRSVC.DLLSRVSVC.DLL SP2 VERSION #:5.1.2600.21805.1.2600.21805.1.2600.21805.1.2600.05.1.2600.21805.1.2600.21805.1.2600.2577When done, reboot. Check System Restore. If after reinstalling System Restore this error message is recieved, ?System restore was unable to start due to a missing Framedyn.dll. Please reinstall the application to fix this problem.? then post back here for further help.Credit where credit is due, the above info was found at http://bertk.mvps.org/html/tips.html

System restore failed to extract file (d: \users\computer\downloads\back up from old machine \caprock securities backup\WA5PSetup.exe
The restore point was damaged or deleted during the restore

Where on earth is the restore looking for the file ?and why is it choosing a file I copied over when I upgraded the machine from xp to win 7 and not using a restore point.
is there a way to force it to use one of the 10 or so restore points it has saved.

P.S. I am doing this restore from the install disk as this is the main problem I am having
