I have Windows XP. I create restore points, but when i try to use the system restore, it says; Restore failed, could not resstore computer. I choose a different date and get the same thing, Can't restore. Does anyone know why this happens?
Whenever I try to create a restore point, Windows keeps telling me that it cant, saying "System Restore Is not able to create a restore point.Please restart the computer and run System restore again." I've done this and it doesn't work. I've also checked to see if the Service is running normally, and that is running perfect.
I'm using Windows XP Pro Home Edition (Service Pack 2) on an HP Pavilion a250y desktop. I have noticed recently that there are no system restore points on my computer. A check of the Event Viewer seems to indicate that my computer has unsuccessfully tried to create five system restore points in the past four days. If I right-click on any of the unsuccessful system restore attempts listed to view the error properties and then click on the hyper link associated with the error properties, I get a message indicating that System Restore will automatically restart if I manually create a restore point. However, when I try to do this, I get the message contained in the subject line. Does anyone know of a way to fix this problem?
When trying to create a restore point the following dialog box is produced.System Restore is not able to create a restore point. Please restart the computer, and then run System Restore again''. And yoy get the message again after rebooting. Also you cannot retore from a restore point, the calendar only shows the current month.
When I attempt to run System Restore to create a restore point I get the following error message:"System Restore is not able to create a restore point. Please restart the computer, and then try System Restore again." But restarting the computer does not solve the problem. Also, when I attempt to restore to an earlier date/time and click Next to confirm nothing happens.System Restore doesn't work in Safe Mode either. I also tried Revert to time when last worked in the boot option menu.As far as I know these problems occurred after Oct. 10 (the last time I created a good Restore Point) and this morning when I attempted to create a restore Point.I have run currently updated AVG 7, S&D, Adaware, Ewido, and MS Anti-spyware and came up clean.
I am trying to create a fresh system restore point. (Well all the previous restore points are already deleted).I type a name a restore name into the box and then this error message pops out.System restore is not able to create a restore point. Please restart your computer, and then run System Restore again.I checked in my event viewer for system restore related errors(sr and srservice). It showed up errors in the following categories(4 errors in source sr) all with event id 1.The System Restore filter encountered the unexpected error '0xC0000001' while processing the file '' on the volume 'HarddiskVolume1'. It has stopped monitoring the volume.The System Restore filter encountered the unexpected error '0xC0000034' while processing the file '_filelst.cfg' on the volume 'HarddiskVolume1'. It has stopped monitoring the volume. The System Restore filter encountered the unexpected error '0xC0000098' while processing the file '' on the volume 'HarddiskVolume1'. It has stopped monitoring the volume.The System Restore filter encountered the unexpected error '0xC0000098' while processing the file on the volume 'Hard disk Volume1'.It has stopped monitoring the volume. This is what i have tried out:Turned off all the system restore on all drives, restarted the computer and then turned back on, but to no avail. I tried to create a restore point from the safe mode but it shows only to "restore the computer back to an earlier time" and no option to create a restore point.
When I try to restore my computer no restore points are saved I have the system restore set to it's maximum capacity, there is plenty of space. I tried to create my own restore points and received message system restore is not able to create restore point please restart the computer and then run system restore again. I did and got same message again. Can someone please tell me how to rectify this problem.Was having trouble with screen saver which refused to start but have now disabled ehtray and screen saver is now working again.
Is it possible to create a system restore disc, like the ones provided with new pc's?I have just used the restore disc for my brothers pc after many problems with corrupt system files that I couldn't repair. We have everything running ok at the moment and are about to install a new dvd writer.I intend to set a system restore point, but if the problem we have just recovered from should resurface, where I could not access windows I would like to be able to use the system restore disc in the future.Assuming that changing hardware would render the manufacturers restore disc useless, how can I create a disc that will be as straightforward to use as the original?
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.
Hello, I currently have a problem with my system restore. It has been this way for as long as I can remember. It just doesn't work. I cannot create a system restore point, it does not allow me, it fails to make one every time I try. There are NO system restore points. I followed this guide http://support.microsoft.com/default...;EN-US;q313853 and my calendar is blank and doesn't show anything. I have tried turning off system restore, restarting and turning it back on....
I recently downloaded some drivers as I was trying to install a new printer who's software would'nt load. This did'nt solve the problem. I decided to get a printer that I had had before, Brother DCP-110C as I knew this had worked well. I tried to install yesterday (28th July) but could'nt and my PC keeps switching itself off near the end of the installation. I then thought I would use System restore to go back to a happier time when I had the first Brother printer. previous saved point wont let me to restore
I was messing around with CCleaner and deleted something to do with an old version of McAfee (which isn't even on my computer anymore) from the registry. Yes, it was stupid to mess with the registry I guess because I failed to make the backup and now my computer won't boot. I get the blue screen that says there was an error 0x0000008e, or something like that.
I have tried using F8 and choosing the last known good configuration but it doesn't work. Also, I can boot into safe mode and I tried running a system restore but after it finished and I rebooted, it said that I couldn't restore from that point.I haven't really tried another restore because I am a little afraid to do anything. I don't want to risk losing access in safe mode because I need to be able to back up some of my files if in case I have to do a reformat.
My computer had a turn yesterday and kept giving me the blue screen error on start-up, so using my windows disk I managed to run chkdsk. So I can get on now, but certain things won't run, like Media Centre, Firefox has forgotten my settings and also my iriver doesn't get acknowledged when I plug it into a USB port.So I am trying to run System restore to go back a couple of days.I can get into restore, and go through everything up to the point where you click 'next' in order to restore it.I click on next but nothing happens, it just stays there.
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?
I'm trying to do a system restore without success. It goes through the motions but after it restarts always say "cannot use restore point, no changes have been made to your system". I'm trying to correct a font setting change that happened without my knowledge.

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.
My system restore is enabled but no matter what bold restoration point I choose I am told system can't be restored to that date, choose another restoration point. I do, the system shuts down and restarts and I get the same message.
My norton anti-virus said that some files were mssing. It said that if I restored my computer to an earlier date that this should correct the problem. My computer has restore dates so I picked one from the previous day. When my computer re-boted it said that it was not able to restore to an earlier date because some files maybe corrupted. Said to restate the computer and trying restoring again. I did but had same results. Any restore date I pick, it says it is unable to restore.
I have Windows XP. WHen I try to use "system restore", I keet getting a message that say that I cannot restore to the restore point I chose. I followed the instructions, and only choose restore points that are bolded.
i've been trying to do a system restore (manually, it's not like the system is doing it on his own), but in the end when it's supposed to show the message of having finished the process, it always says that the system couldn't be restored. I've tryied several restoration points, but no matter how different or how far it just won't do.
I have a Dell 2400 with Windows XP. I have used "System Restore" several times in the past with good results. The last several days I have been trying to use same and go back at least a month, but when I click on the arrow to to the left side of the restore box to go to the previous month it will not do same, nor will it go to the next month when I click on the right side arrow. I need to restore and see if it will correct a problem I am having with Links 2003
anyone else have problems getting system restore to work at all? When I try it , I get a message saying something similiar to cannot be restored and no changes have been made. This happens no matter how far back I go. Had my computer (DEll) 2 or3 yrs with windows home edition.
I have a toshiba laptop A105 sieries. I got a real nasty worm and could not get rid of it.I then stuck in the restore disc and did a complete erase of my harddrive. I am now trying to install the operating system off of the restore disc and I am not able to. Can someone please help me. I have went into the bios and set it to boot from dvd rom but then all it does is say recovering. 32 min later when it is done I try to boot from hard drive it ask me if I want to start windows normally. I select it and then nothing happens. I go back to bios and it says bood from hard drive but no go. If I go back into bios and have it boot from the recover disc it's the same thing all over. I don't know what I am doing and am a little confused no, really confused.
It's clear that System Restore does not simply put down a given Registry of a Restore Point instead of one in existence. Before this System Restore examines for compatibility the coming Registry and established programmed. Sometimes System Restore adjusts them, makes some corrections and informs user about this. But in a complicate situation System Restore cannot make corrections and refuses to put Restore Point down.Where can I read about:
1) What does System Restore control specifically?
2) In which situation specifically does System Restore refuse to put Restore Point down?
3) Is it possible to exclude these testings from System Restore?
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.
Is it possible to get rid of the backed up files that System Restore uses to restore. Is this confusing? Would just turning off System Restore and turning it on again get rid of the files System Restore uses as the 'old' files? What would work if thats not the case. Should I make myself clearer or do you get it.
