System Restore Point Shortcut

Hi Brink

Here are the results of the System Update Readiness Tools analysis as taken from the CheckSUR.Log. Could either one of two files listed below (or both) cause SP1 not to install?

Doug,

You might see if you may be able to do a system restore at boot instead of from within Windows 7 to see if may work.

System Restore Point Shortcut

Hi Brink

What's funny about that is that is the problems with Restore that started this thread. Restore dos not work for me at Boot or any other time. It creates a Restore point, it verifies a valid restore point but it will not complete a RESTORE, period. Which takes us now back to square one.

Doug,

I'm not sure what else to suggest other than you may need to reinstall Windows 7.

Hi

I have tried everything that I know to diable all third party allicatuins that could possibly run in Windows. I have performed System Restores & SP1 installations in "Clean Boot" & Safe Mode" environments with nothing but basic Windows System Files running and nothing else. Yest both Restore & SP1 operations FAIL.

This is a stubborn one. Do you have anything connected to the computer other than a keyboard, mouse, and monitor? If so, unplug it, create a restore point, and see if you may be able to do a system restore afterwards.

Had the same problem, here is how I solved it. My OS is Windows 7, so here are the steps to do it:
1. go to Start ant type msconfig in the “Search programs and files” box, hit Enter key
2. go to Boot tab and check “Safe boot”, make sure “Minimal” si also checked, hit Apply and then OK. Now restart your computer
After your computer has restarted (it starts in a safe mode actually), do the following:
1. go to Start and type msconfig in the “Search programs and files” box, hit Enter key
2. go to Boot tab and uncheck “Safe boot”
3. go to the Startup tab and disable all startup items by hitting the “Disable all” button
4. go to the Services tab and check “Hide all Microsoft services” then disable all services (besides the Microsoft services) that run on system boot by hitting the “Disable all” button.
5. Hit Apply and then OK. DON’T restart the computer now
6. go to Start ant type services.msc in the “Search programs and files” box, hit Enter key
7. go to “Volume Shadow Copy” service, right click, select Properties, select “Automatic” from the “Startup type” drop-box.
8. Restart your computer
Now you should be good to go for the System Restore.
If you want to undo your last System Restore later on, you will have to follow all the steps again. This is of course normal because, after the System Restore, your system returns to the settings that were saved in that specific restore point that you just restored.
Good luck!
