Does Windows 7 Keep Log / Report Of What Caused System Restore?

Nov 5, 2011

I turned on my PC. Windows 7 said 'Windows failed to Load'. I remember something about a system file was corrupted and Windows 7 was attempting to fix it. After about 10 mins it started up. I believe that the pc restored itself to a previous state. I would like to find out what caused the need to restore the machine in the first place. So, Does Windows 7 keep a log/report that holds any information that I can look at?

Error Code 80070643, Unable To Update Or Perform System Restore

Oct 27, 2012

I am trying to rectify the error with windows update. Everytime I try to update it tells me it is checking for updates...Then "To check for updates, you must first install an update for Windows Update. Your automatic Updating settings will not change." I click Install now and get "Window could not search for new updates"An error occured while checking for new updates for your computer. Error(s) Found Code 80070643 Windows Update encountered an unknown error.

This problem first came to light a year ago when I downloaded a windows update that was corrupt.It forced the computer to loop the autocheck upon boot and could only be started in safe mode or by canelling the check.After looking through the forums I found an interim fix which disabled the autocheck and since have always recieved the message upon restarting "Autocheck program not found".I naturally thought this issue would be resovled in the next update and or a future fix.I had to go away for work at the start of this year and when I got back and windows updated it still had the autocheck message.Recently I have been unable to update at all due to the aforementioned error. The simplest soultion it would seem would be to do a system restore, this I have tried however every possible point seems to have a corrupt file on it.I ran a scan using Malwarebytes and found nothing.I don't want to format as the programs came pre installed and that would mean taking to back to the shop.

Apr 15, 2011

Recently after downloading some apps my system won't bootup properly it does go through the normal process but when it gets to the desktop and is loading it will crash and do the blue screen thing with a system dump, so I thought I would do a restore but it wouldn't allow that because there is no System Protection Icon showing in the System Window.

Windows Update, System Restore & Device Manager Not Working

Feb 9, 2012

I've discovered three problems with this laptop and think they all might be related? Windows Update not working with error 0x80070057 - I have searched the internet for help on this and tried suggestions like; starting/stopping wuauserv service, deleting WinUpd cache. System Restore not working; unable to create restore points or restore (the last point is from November), this gives error 0x81000101 Shadow Copy Timeout. Again searched and tried fixing all suggestions like making sure the SysRestore services are running. Device Manager is completely blank; also tried suggested repairs like setting correct permissions on Enum folder in registry. On top of the problem specific fix attempts I've also done the following general fixes: sfc /scannow - found problems but unable to fix repaired registry from RegBack reset all Services to default ran combofix and malwarebytes chkdsk /r removed McAfee have checked Windows & Sytem32 folder for correct user permissions I'm sure I've done a few other things but can't recall everything I've tried.Have also tried Windows Repair but stays at "Checking Compatibilty" for hours.Generally Windows seems to be fine except for these three issues; system is quick and general useage is without issues.

Windows 7 Update Froze - Go To Safe Mode And No System Restore Back Up

Feb 14, 2013

On this recent windows update, 2/14/13, my computer froze on the "Preparing to configure windows" screen for several hours. I rebooted normally and the screen went to "configuring updates" and stuck at 67% for about an hour. I got frustrated with it and rebooted to safe mode to see if I could do a system restore and when I did it said there was no restore point back up! So I rebooted normally and now it is still just sitting on the "Preparing to Configure Windows" screen with the circle spinning. I am using Windows 7 Ultimate on a Dell Dimension 2400.

Laptop Crashed After Windows Update - System Restore Disk Did Not Work

Jan 12, 2013

My laptop crashed the other day after a Windows update. To make a long story short it would not boot up. I tried several things to no avail. System restore disc did not work. At this point I thought the hard drive was fried. Finally I stuck the the Windows 7 companion disk and got the system to boot I can tell all my files are there somewhere due to amount of memory taking up on the hard drive. Anyways my main problem it is now asking for the product key although I have 29 days which unfortunately I cannot find. Laptop in question is a Lenovo G550. Where do I go from here? Do I have to purchase a new key? I've been using the laptop since and it seems to be working properly as far as i can tell.

CPU Spikes Caused By Windows Update?

Oct 20, 2011

've encountered in the last few days on my laptop. I may be wrong but I'm pretty sure it has happened since a Windows Update installed as I remember a big registry I say, may be wrong! [code] My physical memory is pretty stable at around 1.6 to 1.7 Gb but my CPU spikes are just haywire and latency on keyboard strokes is driving me nuts! Even running no programmes the CPU is betwen 26 and 100%...whilst I'm running IE then it's 95 to 100%.The task manager graph is just a total zigzag.Unfortunately, i don't think I have a restore point to go back to pre-Update so I don't think I have that easy route out.

Windows Update Caused Startup Failure

I am convinced that my computer has been dishonored and is trying to commit Hari-Kari.This year-old Toshiba P755 came with Win 7 installed. This August after an automatic Windows Update it failed to startup properly. After logging in Explorer would freeze.I was able to start up in Safe Mode. Windows Update log showed that a half dozen updates had just been installed, and several had failed.I used Recovery and selected a restore point just before the update. All went OK and the computer now worked until the next time I shut down, whereupon it headed off to re-install the updates. This time I noticed it hung in the Installing Updates, do not turn off your computer" screen for many, many hours, eventually failing to install them.

I repeated this cycle three times over teh next few days, growing more desperate each time. Finally I found a kb on the MSDN site that sounded applicable. It had me download and install a "Mr. Fixit" utility. I did so, got one more lockup, then upon entering Safe Mode saw a new option: Repair Startup or some such. I tried it and lo, it worked. No more endless "Installing Updates" messages.I then changed the Windows Update mode to manual. It still sent me messages about updates being available, so I then turned off the Windows Update service.

All was quiet for three weeks. Then last Friday the same drill - hung after logging in. Only this time it has invented a more ominous way to die. I did the Safe Mode->Control Panel->Recovery drill (I can do it in my sleep now) and, uh-oh, it says I have no restore points! I used to have dozens....Looking at the update log, I only see three update that (I think) are when I installed Mr. Fixit. I went ahead and uninstalled them anyway. The computer wanted a reboot, and once again locked on the "configuring Updates" screen.Now I can only start up in Safe Mode with Networking, which is how I am able to write this.

1) With no restore points to choose, what next?

2) How do I keep this from happening again?

Cannot Update Or Uninstall Program - System Restore Does Not Work

Jul 24, 2012

Ever since I removed some malware I cannot run a program that is vital to my job. It tries to do a software update (which it does periodically) and encounters this error: "Message 0x1047 in SUBVMCHK Another application is in the process of updating. Please wait while this update completes." I click ok and the program shuts down. I cannot uninstall the program (I get error 1060). Is there a registry key missing? Earliest system restore does not work.

Windows 7 Update Caused Word 2010 To Stop Working?

May 13, 2012

After an automatic update to my HP pavilion laptop computer, all of my word files are now saved in Word 2007 instead of Word 2010. I used the restore point and the problem disappeared. As soon as the update (identified as a critical update) occurred, the problem resumed.

Error 0x4001100200001012 On System Restore - Windows 7

Mar 1, 2011

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.

Error 0x8004231F When Using System Restore In Windows 7?

Apr 15, 2011

I am having major problems with System Restore for my HP Pavilion Windows 7 Home Premium desktop PC. Here's what 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 software.

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 nothing 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! What 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?

Stuck At User Logon / Probably Caused By An Update

Apr 13, 2012

I ran into a problem on my Windows 7 Ultimate x64 on my MSI CR700x notebook a few weeks ago. For some reason, when logging in, after entering my password, I was stuck at the Welcome screen, that blue "waiting cursor" was still circulating, but nothing happened even after 10 minutes.Sometimes I didn't even get to the login screen, because after the "Starting Windows" screen, I was stuck at a black screen, where only the mouse cursor was shown. In both cases, the only way to quit was to shut down the computer using the power button. (in safe mode I could log in without problems)To workaround, I booted up from the recovery CD, and chose System Restore. I could only choose restore points related to Updates, after this, I could boot up and log in one time (!), however, after a second restart the same problem occured, and to even use the PC I needed to do a system restore from the recovery CD before each start. Automatic updates were turned on. After a few days I've had enough of it, so I decided to reinstall Windows, but after 3-4 days the same problem occured again. (updates were still turned on). So for a few weeks I even went back to XP. Now I have Windows 7 installed again, but with Automatic Updates turned off, and the system is working properly for a week now.But I don't want to keep Automatic Updates turned off. Which update causes these problems, and how to uninstall/disable it? Or is there a fix for that since then if it's a known/popular problem?

System Restore With Error 0x8000ffff

Nov 14, 2011

I have spent several intense days trying to figure out file sharing and networking. Yesterday I deleted all documents from the Document Library. I did not think they were literally in that location. Whatever they are all gone. I wondered if I could restore and get them back. Some of them did come back after the first restore. Then I thought I should just restore to about two weeks ago and I would undo all the changes I have been making and could start over. This is what I get.

Can not find Drive C:? I opened My Computer and looked at the Properties of Drive C: for some insight. I found a tab that said Restore previous version. I get a nice list of previous versions that I can open or copy but the restore button is not enabled. I was able to open one of the versions and copy My Documents and I got all my deleted documents back. I saved them to a different drive. What I need to do to get my restore function back on line in case I need to use it later?

Cannot System Restore Error: 0x80070570

Mar 13, 2011

I bought my HP Pavilion dm4 about a month ago and until recently, it had been working great and really fast while on the internet. Then lately, it started to load normal pages at half its speed, taking time to even load google. When playing MMOs like World of Warcraft, I was a lot laggier than i normally am, dropping framerates by 30-40 per second, even though my task manager said nothing else was running in the background. I thought something was wrong and my suspicions were correct after i found my WoW account to be hacked. I managed to recover my account and change the user/pass but my computer was still slow so i suspected that it was a virus.I uninstalled Norton Antivirus because it couldnt pick up on anything and got Sunbelt Vipre to try and solve the issue. Unfortunately, Vipre didn't pick up on anything either. I wanted to try to System Restore to remove any sort of keylogger or virus that was causing my computer to be so slow and hack my accounts. But when I tried to do the restore, picking the nearest restore point, it was stuck at "Initializing System Restore..." for nearly 3 hours. I had to hard reset the computer and try again at a different restore point, but I got the error message, "System Restore did not complete successfully. Your computer's systems files settings were not changed. The file or directory is corrupted and undreadable (0x80070570)." Then after clicking Run System Restore it gives me the error message "There was an unexpected error: Catastropic failure (0x8000FFFF)" I've also tried the following:-CheckDisk in safe mode, using command prompt as admin, and checkdisk at startup (this one took the longest, nearly 4 hours, and when i woke up the next morning i hadnt seen any changes)-Defrag in safe mode and normal (either way it would get stuck on 79% Analysis and then freeze), I managed to get defrag to work after a few resets and after disabling my antivirus/firewall. Still it did not make a difference and I was still unable to System Restore.-SFC using command prompt as adminPlease help as I really cannot afford to buy another computer and other than the fact that it is running at half its speed and cannot system restore, the computer is able to function normally.

System Restore Error 0x80070005

Aug 2, 2010

I've noticed that I am unable to use System Restore - each time I try to restore an older point, I get the message: "System Restore did not complete successfully, Your computer's files and settings were not changed. Details; System Restore could not access a file. This is probably because an anti-virus program is running on the computer . Temporally disable your antivirus program and retry System Restore. An unspecified error occurred during System Restore, (0x80070005)" The only anti-virus program I am using is Windows Security Essentials. Previously I also had Comodo Firewall (Free version) installed, but System Restore failed to work even when I disabled or uninstalled the Firewall.Previously I was using a program called Soluto to help my laptop boot up more quickly, and when I uninstalled it, I tested System Restore and it worked. I assumed that Soluto was the reason why I could not use System Restore earlier, but apparently it is not the case, as it turns out that I am still unable to use System Restore.

For some reason, this problem happens on both my Windows 7, 64-bit machines. One is a self-assembled small form factor desktop, another is an Asus UL80VT laptop. I can only assume that perhaps one of the programs that I have installed on both machines has broken System Restore, but despite many attempts, I am still unable to figure out exactly which program seems to be the problem.

System Restore Always Reports Error?

The last microsoft updates that were downloaded failed to run properly and I had to roll back the machine a couple of days. When I do this I always get an error at the end saying system restore failed, it may be your anti-virus dadadada.I disable the real-time protection but no matter. I still get this error but the machine does get rolled back.

Constant System Restore Error

Aug 4, 2009

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).
