Windows 7: System Restore Not Working

System Restore Not Working

Hey everyone I am having a very difficult and annoying problem to fix. First it started out I wasn't able to do a system restore to an earlier time running windows regularly but in safe mode. Now I can not do a system restore in safe mode or running in normal mode. When I try to run the restore to an earlier point it will restart say system restore is initializing, say it is complete and boot up and then say System restore did not complete successfully and none of my files were changed. I have tried everything from disabling AVG antivirus to running in safe mode and researching the problem in debth, but I can not figure out what to do. This happens on every single restore point. I went into the event viewer and found the following errors:
1. Volume Shadow Copy Service error: Unexpected error calling routine CoCreateInstance. hr = 0x80004002, No such interface supported. (Event ID 8193)
2. Volume Shadow Copy Service error: A critical component required by the Volume Shadow Copy service is not registered. This might happened if an error occurred during Windows setup or during installation of a Shadow Copy provider. The error returned from CoCreateInstance on class with CLSID {4e14fba2-2e22-11d1-9964-00c04fbbb345} and Name CEventSystem is [0x80004002, No such interface supported]. (Event ID 22)
3.
Volume Shadow Copy Service error: Unexpected error calling routine CoCreateInstance. hr = 0x80004002, No such interface supported.
Operation:
PrepareForBackup event
Executing Asynchronous Operation
Context:
Execution Context: Requestor
Current State: PrepareForBackup (Event ID 8193)
4.
Volume Shadow Copy Service error: Unexpected error calling routine CoCreateInstance. hr = 0x80040154, Class not registered.
Operation:
Gathering Writer Data
Executing Asynchronous Operation
Context:
Execution Context: Requestor
Current State: GatherWriterMetadata (event ID 8193)
5. An unspecified error occurred during System Restore: (Windows Update). Additional information: 0x80070057. (Event ID 8210)
6. Failed to create restore point (Process = C:\Windows\servicing\TrustedInstaller.exe; Description = Windows Modules Installer; Error = 0x80042302). (event ID 8193)
Please help, I have did sfc scannow and nothing came up, scanned for viruses, malware, etc and nothing came up. I am really lost so if any of you could give your input it would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you very much!

Why did you need to use System Restore?

Have you tried System Restore from a Startup Repair CD:
System Repair Disc - Create

I used it because I installed a program and it made some registry changed and system changes that I did not like. I have not yet tried it from the disc as I do not have one made currently. Should I make one and then try it from that? If I do that thouhg it won't have any previous versions or restore points on it though correct?

Running System Restore from CD can find more Restore points, so it may find a good one.

Have you uninstalled the App.

You may also find this method of doing an sfc /scan useful, you will need the created repair disk for this also and be sure to post back with any further questions you may have and to keep us informed.

SFC /SCANNOW : Run in Command Prompt at Boot
