Windows 7: Long application installs, unable to create a restore point

Long application installs, unable to create a restore point

Hi;

My problem is that installing software or running Windows Update takes loads of time (6 minutes longer than usual) while the system otherwise appears to run quickly. Running Win7x64 and Security Essentials.

Upon troubleshooting, I found that my computer cannot make System Restore Points, and it apparently tries to do so for 6 minutes. I deleted all restore points, expanded the space to 100%, and turned off and on system restore, without any success - I cannot create a restore point. My VSS service seems to be running just fine. The specific error is EID: 8193, and the text is:
Failed to create restore point (Process = C:\Windows\system32\rundll32.exe /d srrstr.dll,ExecuteScheduledSPPCreation; Description = Scheduled Checkpoint; Error = 0x81000101).
Any ideas of what to do next? I'm stuck.

UPDATE: So, I turned off System Restore and now my original problem is solved - installs, uninstalls and updates go along at the speed they did 3 weeks ago. However, I'm left with a potentially more insidious problem. Although I've never in years had to invoke a restore, it's clear I am exposed in a new way, so I will not mark this problem as solved.

Doing a Malwarebytes scan right now.

Please look at the lower left of my post. If you put them there it allows others to see your specs without trying to find it on a previous post.
Check and see if you have enough space allocated for restore.
It's under Control Panel/Advanced System Settings/System Properties/System Protection/Configure. I don't need restore often but when I do it's sure saves a lot of time. Happy computing.

Plenty allocated. That's not it. Thanks for helping though!

Halloo, I have the same problem to great Restore Point. Win7 Home Premium 64 bit Lenovo Thinkpad. No Restore Point, only Backup Point. Hard disk is devided in two parts C: and Q: represents Lenovo factory Backup size 15,6 Gt.
There is not enough room, space and you cannot change the space. In Ultimate there is clear Restore Point.
----------------------------
I am sorry. I should have answer earlier. The reson was, that Q:-partition was off. C: was on.

Same problem here (almost at the one year mark). Same error message and code as TJude. One commonality is I also have an ASRock MB, the Z68 Pro3. I also disabled the restore point feature and I'm using Acronis True Image Home version to make occasional backups. I got tired of trouble shooting this problem.
