System Restore Wont Work: Unable To Get Restore Points?

Feb 13, 2005

I am unable to acess any of my or XP's restore points. When I went to restore to an earlier date. All appeared to be going as it should. However, when I got to my profile a message window came up that said unable to restore to (chosen date/time) etc. I chose 3 other restore points over the last month, thinking it might be some recent problem, still a no go. Any help would be greatly appreciated? Is there a utility to use to check and see if there is something corrupted?

System Restore Wont Work: Wont Restore To Earlier Points?

Sep 18, 2005

Was having a problem with the computer, doing weird things so I thought that I might go back and do a restore from an earlier point to see if it solved the problem. Anyway, went to earlier point, restored sort of, after it did everything, it told me it could not restore to that point and that nothing was done. I went to another restore point further back, same message, was not installed at the restore point, current settings are intact. Did this 2 more times, same results. I have made restore points along with the ones the systme makes. None of them works.

Unable To Click On Previous Date After Restore System

Sep 25, 2006

I run windows XP and, after several years with no audio problems, I suddenly lost audio.I checked my sound settings and everything was fine. I tried to do a 'system restore' but the system restore does not work. It will not allow me to click on a previous date; when I tried "help" in 'SR', that did not work either.I've rebooted several times to no avail. Earlier in the day I had downloaded a new program called 'seekmore'...thinking that may be the problem, I uninstalled it, but the audio is still gone. I ran a Norton Scan... still no success.

System Restore Finding Manual Restore Points

Nov 10, 2007

My comp has been experiencing several problems and is running poorly. I bought an external HD, completely backed up everything important and was about to run a system restore as I had created a manual restore point following the resolution of previous problems. The link to the thread is found below. However, when I use the system restore wizard, I can only select November 8th, 9th, and 10th and today is the 10th. I created the manual restore point back in March 2006. I cannot change the month and I have no idea where to find manual points.

Feb 22, 2005

My system restore is no longer creating any restore points, I have to do it manually. About 3 weeks ago I had a virus that I believe I got rid of using HiJackThis. That virus shut off my system restore so that it could not be used and at that time I lost all my restore points. Now my computer seems fine except for the system is not creating any NEW restore points.

System Restore Queries - 30 Or 40 Restore Points

Jan 1, 2009

I just reformatted by Toshiba laptop computer to take it back to original state. I have installed minimum programs at this point. Before I do any adding I go in and set a system restore point.When I went in to do this the first time I found that there was a whole list of system restore points for a program install. It is not a program I installed on my computer this time around, although it was installed previous to my reformatting.System restore shows this program installed every 10-15 minutes ad there's a list of at least 30 or 40 restore points each day.

Unable To Retrieve Files: Restore Points Are Gone ?

Sep 26, 2009

I have got 3 partitions on my HDD namely C, D and E drive.C is the windows drive , the other two are normal data storage drives. Yesterday when i started the PC, i found that all the folders on my E drive have become empty and the files which i can see do not work. Everything on the partition has become useless.Even though all folders show 0 files, the used disk space is same as before.Is it some kind of virus?

One more thing, i tried to system restore. When i reached the system restore screen, i found out that all my restore points are gone and i cant restore my PC to any earlier date, even though i have assigned nearly 20% of each disk for creating restore points. Even the calendar in system restore screen wont show a previous month except the current month.

Unable To Remove Old Restore Points To Get Extra Space?

Oct 31, 2009

I create a new Restore Point each month as I start my monthly maintenance sequence and also SpyBot seems to create one. I see by the Restore Point calendar that there seems to be a Restore Point for each day in October. I'm curious as to what process is creating these Restore Points but mainly I'm wondering how to delete some (most) of them. Aren't they consuming a humongous ammount of disk space?

Unable To Remove - System Restore Doesn't Work

May 20, 2007

Very recently I managed to open a .exe file which contained a rather nasty strain of something which has come back to bite me. When I start up Windows XP SP2, I get an error message telling me that "Generic Host Process for Win32 Services has encountered a problem and needs to close." In addition iexplore.exe starts up in the task manager on every startup, without the browser launching and my baseline RAM usage is 80MB or so higher than normal. Now I have blocked iexplore.exe with my firewall, I have scanned my computer with Norton internet security 2007, Spybot S&D, Adaware SE and I have deleted the .exe file from which the infection originated. Unfortunately, though some minor infections were discovered, the problem at hand remains unresolved. MSConfig does not show anything about iexplore.exe opening up on startup., or any other program I do not want for that matter. I am at my wits end, and I hope someone here can figure out what I cannot....

System Restore Points Not Retained From Day To Day?

Jun 11, 2006

My XP Home System Restore function works when I manually create a restore point, however, the following day (on the calendar) that point is no longer available. I can create several restore points and all are gone the next day. It used to work fine and there would be weeks of restore points. Occasionally I would turn the function off and remove all past points and then turn it back on and it would create a system check point and the next day yet another check point, etc. Now it does not retain even a single point for more than a day.

System Won't Create Restore Points

Jun 2, 2008

For what ever reason my computer won't create restore points anymore. I've tried a couple of things suggested like disabling restore points then enabling it, letting it just sit idle and I've checked that I have enough room ( there's lots of room ). The last time I used restore was about 9 to 12 months ago and it was working fine then. So I'm just looking for some ideas as to what else I might try. My o/s is XP Home.

Restore Points On Operating System

Mar 16, 2006

What can cause the restore points on the XP OS to become corrupted. For the second time in 6 months I have had to do a complete restore of my system as none of the restore points would work. I have not set up any of the points myself as the system seems to do it every day anyhow. It just seems that all of a sudden none of the restore points will work and it comes back and says my system has not been restored to such and such a date. I like this feature as it gets me out of some jams but is it possible to use it too much.
