Windows 7: Repeated requests for a system restore on startup

Repeated requests for a system restore on startup

Hello.


Here's the problem: on startup, the OS won't load, due to some unspecified problem.
It asks to practice a system restore, instead.


This has happened to me twice already in a few weeks (it is a completely new machine, btw - except for the hard disk, which I'll be checking next): the first time, I agreed to a system restore, and things came back to normal.
The second time I refused the system restore: Windows (wimhout loading) tried to fix the problem automatically, but failed to do so. Still, when I tried to turn the pc on again, everything was perfectly fine (even without the system restore).


I am clueless as to what might be causing the problem. I've already run Malwarebytes without results.

Thanks for the help.

First let's try a Repair Install. Their might be a file or two missing in your install. If you have a Win 7 disk, you can insert that and boot with it. It will give you several choices. Repair Install If you do not have a Win 7 disk, you can download the file Windows 7 Direct Download Links, Official Disk Images from Digital River and burn the ISO onto a DVD and you will have one. Be sure and pick the one for the version of Win 7 you have and the correct language. You will find English about half way down the page.

I've finally managed to take the time and do as you suggested (2 and a half hours for the deed!).
Will post again if the problem persists.
Thanks for the help.

It didn't work. It happened again, twice already.
What else can I try?

Thanks a lot.

I think what I would do is a Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7 This will put your computer in better shape than when you got it. It is not a long drawn out process and should go fairly quickly. You need to back up what you don't want to lose because all of you files will be gone.

I'll try to carry on for as long as I can, before doing another clean install.
Thanks for the help.
