Windows 7: System Restore Fails (Windows 7 (x64))

System Restore Fails (Windows 7 (x64))

Hello

While waiting for your reply I tried to do a System Restore and received the following error message:

System Restore did not complete successfully. Your computer's system files and settings were not changed.

Details:
System Restore failed to replace the file (C:\Windows) with its original copy from the restore point.
An unspecified error occurred during System Restore. (0x80071a90)

I have received this error before as well as one stating that my Anti-Virus might be causing it. However, my firewall was not on and the Restore was operating in a "clean boot" environment with no "start-up" items running and only basic services running (which include the Shadow Copy Service). I also get the same results while running in normal mode (with all startup items running).

Have you every seen this before?

Hello DShuck,

See my reply to your post at the link below to see if that may be the issue.

Welcome
If you try with a clean boot it should work
You may encounter temporary connection-related errors when you use Windows Update or Microsoft Update to install updates

EDIT: Brink and I answered at the same time. Give his approcach a try and if it does not work try mine. We both seem to think that the cause is some other software that you use.

Hi Brink

Thanks!!!

That is one of the things that I was trying to convey in my previous post:

" my firewall was not on and the Restore was operating in a "clean boot" environment with no "start-up" items running and only basic services running (which include the Shadow Copy Service). I also get the same results while running in normal mode (with all start-up items running)."

I was very care to eliminate anything that i could think of that could interfere. The process of creating the Restore Point always says that it was created successfully but over the past month or so I have not been able to actually execute a successful restore. This started shortly after a major Microsoft Update right around Christmas time, best I can remember. prior to that the restores would work even with my ZoneAlarm running.

DShuck,

Double check to make sure that System Protection is turned on for the C: drive?

If it is, then run a SFC /SCANNOW command to see if it may find and fix any bad system files. Afterwards, see if you may be able to create a restore point.

Hi Brink

System Protection was turned on. I ran the SFC /SCANNOW command and the results indicated that there were some corrupted system files that it could not correct. The CBS.Log file is quite extensive, over 1999 pages (legal size in landscape layout), and I have no idea what I am looking for or exactly how those defective files ARE marked.

I have found a number that are marked with a [SR] tag but they appear to have been fixed, similar to these entries:

POQ 4 ends.

2011-02-27 20:59:03, Info CSI 0000001f Repair results created: I am assuming that this one has actually been repaired.

Then there are files like this:

Doug,

Click on the SFC link above for more details in OPTION THREE on how to read only the SFC entries in the CBS. First, I would recommend to run the SFC scan a few more times to see if it may still be able to fix them. Sometimes it may take running it more than once to fix them.

Hi Brink

As you suggested I ran the tools another six or seven times. Then I followi=ed the instructions in KB929833, those results ares shown below:

In KB929833, "How to use the System File Checker tool to troubleshoot the missing or corrupted system files on Windows Vista or on Windows 7" there are instructions on how to find the non-repairable items found after running the SFC /SCANNOW file and the results contained in the CBS.Log file. What it does not explain is how to handle the following error for example;
1 start***************************************************************************************
PROCESSOR_ARCHITECTURE_AMD64 (9), Culture neutral, VersionScope = 1 nonSxS, PublicKeyToken = {l:8 b:31bf3856ad364e35}, Type = [l:24{12}]"driverUpdate", TypeName neutral, PublicKey neutral in the store, hash mismatch

2011-03-01 16:25:27, Info CSI 0000002e [SR] Cannot repair member file [l:24{12}]"mdmomrn3.inf" of mdmomrn3.inf, Version = 6.1.7600.16385, pA = PROCESSOR_ARCHITECTURE_AMD64 (9), Culture neutral, VersionScope = 1 nonSxS, PublicKeyToken = {l:8 b:31bf3856ad364e35}, Type = [l:24{12}]"driverUpdate", TypeName neutral, PublicKey neutral in the store, hash mismatch

2011-03-01 16:25:27, Info CSI 0000002f [SR] This component was referenced by [l:196{98}]"Microsoft-Windows-Common-Modem-Drivers-Package~31bf3856ad364e35~amd64~~6.1.7600.16385.INF_mdmomrn3"
1 end ****************************************************************************************

After all if it were available in the System File Store the SFC /Scannow would have already repaired it, would it not? So where is the replacement supposed to be found? If a suitable replancement cannot be found then is one supposed to delete the offending file(s) or what???

Best regards,
Doug

Doug,

It appears to be a generic modem driver file included in Windows 7. It shouldn't be related to your system restore point issue though.

If you wanted to fix it, then here's a copy of that mdmomrn3.inf file from my system in a ZIP file below that you can download and save to your desktop. You will need to extract and unblock the file first.
  • Afterwards, you will need to take ownership and set permissions to "Allow" your account "Full Control" of the original C:\Windows\inf\mdmomrn3.inf file in your current installation.
  • Next, rename the original C:\Windows\inf\mdmomrn3.inf file to say mdmomrn3.inf.bak instead.
  • You will now be allowed to replace it with the unblocked copy below.
Folder to save it in afterwards:
C:\Windows\inf

Hi Brink

Thanks! What specifically should I be looking for, what would stop SP1 from loading???

I have a number of corrupted gadget files (those furnished by MS with Windows 7 and even after disabling Gadgets & then reinstalling them, they were still corrupted.

I also have corrupted files where the Source Files are also corrupted like:
2011-03-02 21:53:55, Info CSI 000003a8 [SR] Could not reproject corrupted file [ml:520{260},l:60{30}]"\??\C:\Windows\Media\Afternoon"\[l:56{28}]"Windows Battery Critical.wav"; source file in store is also corrupted

&

2011-03-02 21:53:53, Info CSI 00000372 [SR] Could not reproject corrupted file [ml:520{260},l:98{49}]"\??\C:\Windows\Globalization\MCT\MCT-AU\Wallpaper"\[l:20{10}]"AU-wp3.jpg"; source file in store is also corrupted


& 2011-03-02 21:44:41, Info CSI 000001b5 [SR] Could not reproject corrupted file [ml:520{260},l:134{67}]"\??\C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\User Account Pictures\Default Pictures"\[l:28{14}]"usertile26.bmp"; source file in store is also corrupted

2011-03-02 00:18:52, Info CSI 000000fa [SR] Cannot verify component files for Microsoft-Windows-International-TimeZones, Version = 6.1.7600.16695, pA = PROCESSOR_ARCHITECTURE_AMD64 (9), Culture neutral, VersionScope = 1 nonSxS, PublicKeyToken = {l:8 b:31bf3856ad364e35}, Type neutral, TypeName neutral, PublicKey neutral, manifest is damaged (TRUE)

And the list goes on. Most seem to be graphics, gadgets, *.inf files, International Keyboard issues, *.wav files, etc...
