System Restore

I'm finding that when I manually set a restore point, quite often when I try to use it
it gives me the error that SR did not complete, no files were changed, etc.
I'm using Windows 7, pro. Could use some help for this problem.

Run SFC /SCANNOW Command to check system file integrity

Here are other Troubleshooting Steps for Windows 7 to go over your install closely and learn more how to troubleshoot it.

If this is factory preinstalled Win7 then that is a corrupt install to begin with so I'd consider getting the superior Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7

This is some spammer. He shows up from time to time. The mods can apparently not eradicate him.

Hello, I hope you will love the solution.

Before you start System Restore, save any open files and close all programs. System Restore will restart your PC.

  1. Open System Restore by clicking the Start button . In the search box, type System Restore, and then, in the list of results, click System Restore. If you're prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.
  2. Follow the steps in the wizard to choose a restore point and restore your computer.
    For more information, see System Restore: frequently asked questions.

System Restore in Windows 7 can prevent hours of troubleshooting headaches after a crash.
