System Restore Failure, Error 0x80070005 and other issues as well....
This problem is quickly turning into a nightmare.
This started when I updated my graphics driver. I have an AMD Radeon HD 5750 with Catalyst. I was notified that Catalyst 12.3 was available so I updated. The update failed to install properly and there were noticeable graphics problems in both World of Warcraft and Skyrim.
In WoW's options, I noticed that the default DirectX setting had been reset to 9 instead of 11. Resetting it to 11 fixed the problems in WoW, but Skyrim does not have such a setting that I can see so I can't fix it the same way.
On the suggestion of a AMD tech, I rolled back to 12.2 but the problem persisted. So instead, I attempted to System Restore to before installation of 12.3. The System Restore failed with error 0x80070005 and suggesting I disable my anti-virus.
I use Kaspersky 2012. I disabled Kaspersky and attempted to undo the restore. It said it failed again. I exited out of Kaspersky entirely and it still failed. I ran a system scan and found no problems.
The only other restore point available to me is AFTER I installed the graphics driver that caused the problem.
Is there anything else that I can try? Or should I just bloody uninstall everything and start from scratch?
