Enable system protection?

Q: Enable system protection?

Long story short, I bought a new laptop, and in the month I have had it, I've had to do continual restores because it was getting hung up on 15% at updates. Finally got that fixed, then I had to do another restore for an unrelated issue, and it restored it to prior to the update. Before I could go in to fix it again, it started updating and once again got hung up at 15%. After three hours, I finally shut down, just expecting to do another system restore. Now, it won't let me do anything. Repair and restore tell me that there was a problem and no changes were made, and it gives me restore points, but then tells me I have to enable system protection...which I can't boot into anything to do. Safe mode won't work. Nothing but command prompt works, and I am about to tear my hair out. Has anyone had this problem and been able to fix it without a repair disk, that I conveniently do not have at this time? I contacted the company I ordered the computer from, and they are sending me the disks, but..I was hoping to be able to fix this without having to do a complete clean reinstall.

Hi and Welcome to TSF!

Since the laptop is brand new I would recommend asking your warranty to take a look.

You don't want to mess with it so much that they VOID your warranty.

A:Enable System Protection solely with the use of cmd

Do you mean you would like to start System Restore from the Command Prompt? This will allow you to choose a previous Restore Point that is saved and restore your computer to a previous date and time. Is that what your mean?
To run System Restore from the Command Prompt: go to Start/Search and type CMD, right click the CMD.exe icon in the Search Results and choose to Run as Administrator. In the Command Prompt type rstrui.exe and press enter.

Hi all,
I seem to be having a frustrating issue. I was attempting to enable my system protection in order to allow me to restore individual files to a previous state. Unfortunately when I go to do so the option is not available at all. I did some research and have not been able to find a solution for this issue. I attached a screen shot of what i'm seeing and what should be available below (found the second one on sevenforums). Any help with this would be greatly appreciated as I have been searching for a solution for this problem for a little over two hours now .

A:No option to enable system protection for files

Hello Waffle, and welcome to Eight Forums.

Previous Versions of files from system protection has been replaced with File History in Windows 8/8.1 now. File History gives you more control.

Hi Everyone

I went on my laptop this morning and it said I needed to run a system restore. Unfortunately when I try to it says I need to enable system protection on my C drive. I've been searching the web for a solution for the past couple of hours and it seems like quite a common problem. However I've tried all of the suggested solutions and nothing seems to work. I'm not the most computer literate so some of the suggested didn't make the most sense. If anyone has any suggestions to help the matter it would be very much appreciated.

I hope somebody will explain in simple terms what the "Recovery" drive represents and whether my setting it to "Protection On with max usage at 100%" is a good idea or not and what the consequences would be if I set it back to Off.

Help!!!!!!

A:Cannot boot up windows 7, blue screen flash, enable system protection

Boot to System Recovery Options . Try Safe Mode with Command Prompt. In the command prompt .... enter the command ....

start msconfig

It will open the system configuration window, with the "general" tab selected.
Click the "startup" tab. Click "Disable all" > Apply > OK.
Click on "services" tab. Check the "Hide all Microsoft Services"; Click "Disable all" > Apply > OK
Then try to boot again normally. Is it failing still?

If so, boot to System Recovery Options once again. Try Enable Boot Logging. It will create a file named ntbtlog.txt. Collect it and upload it. If you cannot do it within windows, Boot with a live Linux disc and collect it in a USB stick, use the usb stick in another computer and upload it. It is necessary.

Just today, I noticed that realtime protection wasn't enabled on Malwarebytes, so I tried re-enabling it with no success. As well, when I tried updating, Malwarebytes was unable to access the update server.
 
A few days before this happened, I tried to download a song from an MP3 site, but instead of it being an MP3, it turned out to be a Windows executable that Malwarebytes detected as a PUP. I removed the PUP, but I think it may still have been responsible for the problem I currently have.
 
Also, when I try to run a scan in Malwarebytes, it gets hung up on some files. If I delete a file it gets stuck on, it'll just get stuck on another.

A:System Integrity Scan Wizard, Security System Protection Control Panel

The blank popup appeared to be repopulated with information over time...apparently the spyware refreshed itself. I also learned from Task Manager that all of my popups were from the System Integrity Scan Wizard. After some more searching, I found the name (in my case, yzqrqzkp.exe) and told Norton Firewall to block it from accessing the internet. I used HijackThis to fix it and then deleted it and a namesake (YZQRQZKP.EXE-1253B76A.pf) from Windows\Prefetch (not sure that was necessary but deleted it anyway). My only concern is that from what I read, there should have been another copy in \Local Settings\Application Data, which I didn't find. I updated Java per instructions in another post, also turned System Restore off and on. I think the PC is now clean, but would you review my latest HijackThis log to be sure?

My PC is infected with 3 malware popups named Security System Proctection Control Panel, System Integrity Scan Wizard and Security System Warning (the last one telling me I have Abebot). I have tried to get rid of them with Kaspersky Antit-Virus, Adaware, spyware sweeper, and SpybotSD, but they are still running. I didn't run the online scan by Kaspersky because I have the most recent version installed and running on my PC. When I ran a rootkit scan with KAV, it took just over four hours and reported my PC was clean. So for whatever reason Kaspersky is not picking up these three forms of malware.

Hello,

I have recently just successfully cloned my Old primary 1TB Western Digital HDD onto my new 1TB Samsung EVO SSD to increase hard drive performance to give it a quick boot up and to enable Windows and my programs to load a lot quicker and perform better with multi tasking. My laptop is one of the bigger 17inch Acer models which comes with two hard drive bays. So once I had wiped my older WD HDD I then inserted a new 2 TB Seagate hard drive into the second bay to be able to store it for personal and media files, and any other imprtant data, to keep it the SSD as the primary hard drive and just for OS and programs only. My system runs the Windows 8.1 OS and is 64 bit.

However, I wanted to create a restore point and upon doing so, I found that System protection was turned off for all my both my hard drives.

I thought I had managed to somehow enable system protection on my C:/ Dive (including the partioned / drive on the same hard drive) on my SSD, and yet though it shows them enabled, it shows the word missing next to them, and I am assuming this is telling me the previous restores are missing; whether as a result of cloning I don't know.

I have a Win10 Pro and ran MR to create a system image backup.
It went well but it turned of system protection.
A message shows up with a warning yellow triangle that reads.
Using system protection on a drive that contains system image backups will cause other shadow copies to be deleted faster than normal.
--- How do I stop system protection from being turned off?

I have another Win10 computer and created a MR system image backup on that one also.
System protection wasn?t turned off on that one.

I do not use shadow copies: If shadow copies are in use on my computer it doesn?t matter to me if that is the case as I don?t know how to use them anyway. I just don?t want system protection turned off.

A:I donít want system protection turned off when I do a MR system image

Hi,

The available disk space on the pc with the warning issue is probably too small to store both backup images (MR) and system protection image.






I do not use shadow copies:



Actually you do. System Protection is a form of Shadow Copying.

Furthermore, it's not wise policy to store backups on the same physical drive as your system. Still better than nothing but all in all not sound practice.
Better to store back up on an ext. removable drive.

In the mean time you could reduce the amount of space allocated to System Protection and see if that helps any.

Cheers,

I need help on how to remove the (system reserved) folder under Available Drives in protection settings. On all my other computers it is not shown. Not sure why it is there as it does not show anywhere else on computer as a drive. I guess it just bugs the hell out of me not knowing why it's there. Any help would be appreciated.

A:In System Protection under Available Drives (System Reserved)

Look in Disk Management and see if the Reserve has a partition letter.

Hi, I defragged my registry (castigate me later, please), and well, my system crashed. I'm running Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit on a Lenovo laptop, and on startup, I get a blue screen claiming that the OS couldn't boot, and the option to try a system repair. After analysis, it says that it can't repair the system automatically, and offers more advanced options. I can try a system restore, but after selecting a restore point (clearly the one created before defragging the registry), system restore says that I must enable system protection on the drive. I don't remember disabling it, and I don't know how to enable it without access to the desktop.
From those same advanced recovery options, I can use a system image recovery (don't have an image to recover from), the windows memory diagnostic (it claims there's no memory error), or the command prompt. I know very little about using the command prompt, but I can open the task manager at least, though not explorer.exe or msconfig.exe (the prompt claims they're invalid commands).
I've tried booting in safe mode, with the last known good configuration, with boot logging, and everything else from that menu, as well as a Windows 7 recovery disc (though I believe this disc just provides the same options as those installed on the laptop.
If possible, I'd like to know how to enable system protection from the command prompt window so that I can continue with the system restore. I'm quite certain that the error lies in the defragmentation... Read more

My Toshiba Notebook (x64) (running Windows 7) has stopped being able to open/run programs. I've been using safe mode to try and find a cure, and safe mode works fine. I ran a few antivirus programs that detected a few things, but none of them solved this issue. Using System Restore seems to be the only thing I can really do, but I've been having some troubles with it.

Only one System Restore point shows up, and it's only from a few days ago, which isn't far back enough to fix my problem (I've already tried restoring it to that point). There are no other options as you can see here and here.

I tried to create my own restore point, but ran into some problems. When I go into "System" the "System Protection" option is missing. I only have these three options:

When I use the search bar to find it instead, "Create a restore point" comes up, but when I click and it opens System Properties, the "System Protection" tab is missing.

When I looked it up, someone had suggested running Regedit and checking HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Windows NT\SystemRestore\DisableSR but I couldn't get that far.

If anyone could help me out, it would be greatly appreciated.

A:Troubles with System Restore/System Protection

Hello esu and welcome to Seven Forums.

Have you verified that System Protection is turned on? (If it is, try turning it off, restarting the computer, turning it back on, and restarting the computer one more time.)

See if you can manually create a restore point.

If not, your computer may have damaged or corrupt sytem files. Try running a system file checker scan from an elevated command prompt (option two.) If problems are found, run the scan 3 times and make sure to reboot the computer immediately after each of the scans.

Hi,

I've recently had my PC upgraded, the only thing I had left from the old system was my Graphics card which is an 256MB SAPPHIRE RADEON 9600 ATLANTIS. My problem at the moment with it is that I cant enable my card to run at AGP 4X or 8X. I've got all the neccesary software installed (.net framework for the catalyst control center) and running the latest drivers. I've had a look in the bios to see what the new system's running at & noticed that the primary display was set to PCI, so I changed it to AGP to sse if I would be able to set up the card to run at AGP 4 or 8X, but nothing seems to work. Is there anything I have missed or am I looking at haveing to buy a new Graphics card or Motherboard the mother board I have is an ASUS K8N socket 754 DDr400.

Thanks in advance for any suggestions.
 

A:How Do I enable AGP on my new system?

Your AGP card is working already, otherwise you would not see anything on your screen.
Tha AGP/PCI switch is used if you would have 2 graphics cards in your PC, and you would want to tell the PC which one is your primary card. With only 1 card, this switch has no function, but should be set to AGP to speed up booting (a tiny bit).
AGP speed (4x/8x) may be set somewhere in your BIOS, check the motherboard manual.
It will most likely default to the fastest possible speed anyway (x8 for that card).
So forget about it, I would say.

Hello everyone,

so after Winrar stopped working, I decided that I would install 7zip. And after the 7zip didn't work, I decided I would do a system restore, maybe I screwed something up by accident, which broke the context menus( what wasn't working on both programs), but when I tried to do a system restore I was greeted with this message
"system protection is turned off" is disabled and that I have to enable it in order to do a system restore, which is odd because I have always done automatic restore points.

After a couple of google queries I found out how to enable it again, which points me to "system protection", and it shows me that every drive has system restore diabled, but when I try to enable the option "restore system settings and previous versions of files" is grayed out and I can't enable it.

I looked in the Microsoft forums but none of the solutions helped...

any suggestions?

My System Restore got mysteriously turned off and I can't turn it back on. When I attempt to do so from the System Restore tab in the Systems Properties windos, I get the following message: 'System Restore encountered an error trying to enable/disable one or more drives.'

The problem must be linked to the fact that the 'Status' section of the System Restore tab in the System Properties window indicates that that '(C)' is 'Turned off'.

How do I 'turn' my C drive back on? It should read, I think, 'Monitoring'.

Hi, Please help me get my computer back.

What I've done so far:

Unfortunately I downloaded some software of a torrent site and it has badly infected my PC. It is now unusable

I am sending this message from an alternative PC as my infected PC will no longer connect to the internet.

By booting from an old miniPE cd that I had I was able to download and run Spybot S&D. It removed multiple viruses including Hupigon13, PWS.LDPInchIE, Virtumonde.atr, Win32.Delf.rtk, Win32.Delf.uc, Win32.Delf.Uv, Win32.VB.PW and ZEDO. Also detected Microsoft Windows Security Center.Antivirus Override and Microsoft Windows Security Center Reg Tools.


Due to the age of the Firefox browser on the cd I was unable to run any of the on-line virus scans.


The infected computer had AVG 8.5, SpywareBlaster, Spyware Guard and Ad-Aware installed. All were up-to-date.

There was an attempt to hijack the IE browser to Pakras.com/x262gw2g/info.php

AVG did detect some of the viruses as they appeared but AVG is now prevented from running - even in Safe Mode

I have run the Microsoft Malicious Software Removal Tool. This cleared some additional viruses but also detected 2 viruses that it couldn't remove.

I rely on the Windows Firewall, but this has been switched off and will not switch back on.

I have deleted several of the infected and virus files that were mentioned whils Ad-Aware and AVG were still running. These included 14.tmp(4928) BN6.tmp, BN7.tmp, BN10.tmp and ds43g4nfjkn... Read more

A:Need help system protection not there on system properties

Hi,

Welcome to Seven Forums.

Run Regedit and check the following registry key:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Windows NT\SystemRestore\DisableSR.

If the key is present and has any value other than 0 then system restore is disabled and the system protection tab will be hidden.

Viruses often disable this by setting this registry key. Often they will also disable the task manager and regedit too.

If you get a message saying regedit has been disabled by your administrator then it's quite possible you have been targeted by a virus, in which case a full scan of your system is a good idea.


As always, before making changes to your registry, back it up.

There was a solution having to do with the windows 7 ultimate that I couldnt do because my version (premium) doesn't have the gedit.msc (iirc) just a gedit.dll.

There's this fake anti virus program called Protection System which does it's thing, I'm sure you know all about it. Anyway, I've done a few hours worth of research, read countless "fix it" articles and forum post and nothing has worked yet. At this point I need to rest my eyes and my mind and ask you all for your help.The biggest problem is no programs that could solve the problem or aid in solving the problem work. The real anti virus was disabled and broken, malwarebytes wouldn't install so I renamed it, it then installed halfway before freezing. I played around with that for a while and I got it to install. Couldn't run the program after that, so I renamed the that. It finally opened but as expected the scan shut the program down. After it crashed during the scan malwarebytes was completely inoperable, couldn't even delete it with out a restart.

However I may have missed a setting that I could not find, but I can only set mine to System Restore -
 
More general information ..............

 What files are changed during a system restore ?
 

System Restore affects Windows system files, programs, and registry settings. It can also make changes to scripts, batch files, and other types of executable files created under any user account on your computer. System Restore does not affect personal files, such as e-mail, documents, or photos, so it cannot help you restore a deleted file.
NOTE :: If you have backups of your files, you can restore the files from a backup.

 
Always create a backup of your system prior to doing any System Restore
 
Open System Restore and follow the links in that area as to what you will restore and what you can do there.
There is a lot of helpfull information listed there -
 
Thank You -

Hello everyone ... Really hoping you can help me.

I use Firefox browser and gmail or yahoo for mail. I have Fix-It Professional 6 which I just ran for any viruses, mal ware, spy ware and ad ware.

For about the past week or so, every time I start my machine, I get a window called Windows PC Defender inside of which is a"My Computer" window. I cannot close this window but I can minimize it and open an additional window.

This address appears in the location window -
hxxp://my-systemprotection.net/?p=WKmimHVl...nBkaF%2FEkKE%3D

In the My Computer it shows the Windows shield logo along with System Folders, My Documents, Hard Drive and Security. Next to each, flashing in red is notification that I have 5 viruses in the System Folders, 7 in My Documents, 12 in my Hard Drive and that "Security has been damaged by virus" in the Security. Additionally, below that is a separate window "Your Computer is Infected" and shows a long list -

Hi Cailleach Echo, welcome to BC I have moved your topic to the "Am I infected? What Do I Do?" forum since you appear to be infected by a rogue security product. This will allow our members who specialize in malware removal to find your topic more easily.I've always been warned not to open anything that ends with ".exe"Sound advice. You're infected with some sort of rogue security program. These programs falsely warn that your computer is infected (like in the list of baddies you were given) and then prompt the user (you) to download a file to "clean" the computer. Do not download anything it asks you to. Do not purchase any program it recommends. It is a scam and will only serve to make the situation worse.

Hey all, I've ran into a huge problem... My aunt dropped off her family computer yesterday and I've been working on it for a few hours now and to say the least I'm completely stumped. There's this fake anti virus program called Protection System which does it's thing, I'm sure you know all about it. Anyway, I've done a few hours worth of research, read countless "fix it" articles and forum post and nothing has worked yet. At this point I need to rest my eyes and my mind and ask you all for your help.The biggest problem is no programs that could solve the problem or aid in solving the problem work. The real anti virus was disabled and broken, malwarebytes wouldn't install so I renamed it, it then installed halfway before freezing. I played around with that for a while and I got it to install. Couldn't run the program after that, so I renamed the that. It finally opened but as expected the scan shut the program down. After it crashed during the scan malwarebytes was completely inoperable, couldn't even delete it with out a restart. At that point I had enough, I was preparing to post a topic in the "HijackThis Logs and Virus/Trojan/Spyware/Malware Removal" forum but after several attempts it appears that not even your DDS Tool works. I'm just so frustrated right now...To clear a few things up. I've been trying everything in and out of safe mode, same results.

How does System Protection work...does it save information to a separate partition?

I have a 7gb partition on my drive that I do not know what it is for. I deleted it and was am thinking of adding it to my main C: partition. Did destroy the System Protection partition?

A:System Protection?

That partition was likely put there by the manufacturer to help you restore the PC to factory specs if you ever needed to do that.

If you in fact deleted the partition and do not have "recovery disks", you will have problems restoring to factory specs.

Do you have any install discs at all? What happens if your hard drive fails in 30 minutes?

System protection is not the same as "system restore", which you may be thinking of. System restore returns the operating system to the way it was on the date the restore point was made---typically somewhere in the last couple of weeks-----not to factory specs. System restore points are stored on your C drive along with Windows.

Can you post a screen shot of Disk Management?

I don't have an answer but do have some advice.

System protection is different than backing up data, system protection backs up critical system registries and other settings normal backups do not, it would be wise to leave this setting On.

I am curious I was reading a previous thread which concerned a Teacher, Wendy and her issues with her current computer instructor. When following the thread a program I have never heard of, HijackThis was mentioned several times. Is this a program that just simplly reports problems to the user or is it like Spybot S&D(which I am currently using) in that it can also fix any possible security issues. If HijackThis can do the previous: fix report and whatever else; then what additional advantages does it provide the user that Spybot doesn't support, and would U use this in place of Spybot S&D or something else.
 

A:system protection?

It is not an automated tool, and provides no judgement or recommendations on removal. It simply shows what is present in several locations of the registry and file system - you have to know what you're looking at to use it to delete entries.
When I think it's preferable that dll's are unregistered etc., I will often recommend that SpyBotSD be run first and then use HJT to look and see if it missed something.

You can see some instructions at http://tomcoyote.org/hjt/ if you want to look at it.

It's far better than just "OK" when you have the system running satisfactorily. It's the only way to avoid the nasty surprises when Windows "updates" to incorrect drivers.

Yesterday I, as always before, was going to do monthly Macrium Reflect system backup. As per usual I did all the AV, HW and software checks, made sure windows and SW was up to date, absolutely everything works as good as ever. At the end of those checks I did sfc /scannow but would not go past 58%. Dism also got stuck at some 20% on or offline, in safe mode too.
All disks are in perfect shape and so are drivers etc.
Before I do something radical like restoring last moth's Macrium backup or doing windows repair I would like to see if there's something less radical to troubleshoot this problem.
I still have W10 on another disk to fall back to if necessary so in no way I could be left without OS on this computer. Willing to try anything. Any ideas ?

I just finished "cleaning out" an old Dell desktop. I deleted a lot of files. I don't intend to un-delete any of them (couldn't anyway, because I did a wipe of the free space), but the thought occurred to me, what if I wanted to un-delete one of them? In the old DOS days, I could do that without software (like Recuva). But with NTFS file systems, I note that there is a system setting called System Protection that provides a built-in way to recover deleted files, as long as you haven't overwritten them. I checked the settings for this app on my desktop. System Protection is Off for both of my drives, so that's apparently the default.

Question: What are the downsides of turning that On? My guess would be that it burdens the MFT with more entries, thereby slowing drive performance. Is that true and are there any other downsides?

A:System Protection

The only real downside to turning on System Protection is that is consumes some disk space but you can control that. The impact on performance is insignificant.

Hey all,

I've had Windows 7 installed since 2009. Recently I've been getting this warning.



Not really sure why though, as I've never stored System Image backups on this drive. I always keep them on an external drive.
I've tried turning off System Protection then back on, this does remove the warning. But then when I create a new image the warning returns.
I've done various different scans, A/V, diagnostics and can't see anything wrong. Disks are working fine.

Anyone have any ideas as to what may be causing this warning?

A:System Protection Warning.

Backup Images are snapshots... The image process creates a restore point just like what happens when installing software or windows update patches. The restore point itself, so the situation on start of backup will be backed up.

I've used Windows 7 Home Premium x64 since 2009. I understand how to use System Protection. However, what I don't understand is why it would be useful for drives other than C:, where Windows resides.

If there is a tutorial somewhere on reasons why System Protection is useful on other drives, I would surely appreciate a reference to it.

A:Why Use System Protection On Drives Other Than C: ?

It`s useful if you also wanted to have restore points for those drives and if you had storage room to backup those drives.

It`s not turned on on other drives by default, windows just gives you the option to do so if you wanted.

I am trying to do a system restore. When I get to the screen titled 'confirm disks to restore' it says 'you must enable System Protection on this drive'. I am unable to enable System Protection thru normal means because the tab isn't showing up. I searched the forum and found an answer in the following thread that I thought would help:

Can't access System Protection options

There's probably a value in the registry called "DisableConfig" or "DisableSR" at HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Windows NT\SystemRestore. Open regedit, browse to that key, and if either value exists, delete and reboot the PC. You should get your System Restore tab back after doing this.

A:System Protection question

  Spybot S&D 1.62 will protect your host file quite nicely, and, it has an on-demand malware scan.  I had to goto Spybot 2, it's like driving a bus where a Chevy or Ford station wagon would do.  For very good behind-the-scenes browser lprotection, I use SpywareBlaster [I only pay $10/yr for automatic-update/automatic enable all]. 
  Now, comes an Idea:  you have to balance functionality and security, not so much 50-50, rather, how much functionality and ease would you like, and, how much security would you like?  While they are not mutually exclusive, too much of one can cause problems for the Chair-person.  Not enough of one can cause problems for the Chair-person.  Just last night, I had to roll-back to a Dec 29 image 'cause too too much security attempts led to pretty much Windozzzzzzz and hee-haw in the thin blue line.
