Windows 7: System will not fully restore

System will not fully restore

After the latest set of updates, for the third time now (starting last September) I have two updates installing again and again.

I did a system restore back to the beginning of the latest updates, but now get a 0xc0000022 error telling me that some files could not be restored. I now have 14 updates queuing up to be installed, so that part has worked.

Do I just ignore the error report, or is there something more basic I need to do to my system to get out of the recurring jam that I seem to be in?

Antivirus programs
The issues with the functioning of System Restore feature on Windows 7 may be because of presence of malware on the system. The malware infections might have locked the system files which prevent the restore. Similarly, the problem might also be because the antivirus program is running in the background when the restore process is started. Such problems can be resolved by removing the malware from the system (if possible) and also terminating the antivirus software before initializing the restore process.

Check system file integrity
If some of the system files associated with the System Restore feature itself got damaged in some way, then the restore process might fail. Windows 7 users facing difficulties when using the System Restore feature are advised to check the integrity of the system files using ’sfc/scannow’ command in the CMD. If any system files are missing, users would be prompted to insert a genuine installation disk of the OS and the files would be replaced. Replacing the files would resolve the problems with System Restore.

Free up hard disk space
System Restore in Windows 7 requires free space to function. There are lots of important system files that need to be gathered and changed and lack of free space on the system would cause the restore process to fail or freeze in the middle. All Windows 7 users experiencing System Restore problems are suggested to free up hard disk space to get the System Restore working properly.
I have just completed the sfc/scannow procedure, and been told that the operation cannot be completed. This means that my system files are damaged, again. This is what happened back last year after an update session and I had to do a complete restore using Ghost 15, with all the attendant housekeeping tasks involved. This is not a trivial exercise.

I thank you for your help, but I must say that I am very disappointed at this ongoing update situation, where the systems of users all over the world are put at risk. I still do not understand the basic problem - or maybe I do.

Check your HD.

1) Boot DVD, & Press Shift+F10 (for command prompt)
2) Boot DVD, & Command Prompt at Startup (for command prompt)
Open an command prompt.
In the command prompt, type chkdsk C: /f/x/r/v and press Enter.

Disk Check
Check Disk (chkdsk) - Read Event Viewer Log

Check the hard drive with the manufacturer's diagnostic tools.

Thanks for the continued advice - much appreciated.

I am reaching the conclusion that, as you suggest, I may have an HD issue of some kind. Luckily, and by sheer accident, I have two Windows 7 systems on two separate HDs (too complicated to explain ), so I have fired up the other one, installed Office 2010, and done around 60 updates. I have checked with sfc /scannow and everything is fine. I will now put the original one on extended tests, to zero in on the problem, or maybe just change it anyway - it is only 160GB. I have done a extended burst of memory checking, just to eliminate that possibility.

Fingers crossed!
