Windows 7: System Restore Issue

I wish people would pay attention to my threads from the get-go. I have been perfectly clear on ALL matters. Period, the end on that matter. My machine, HP Envy 700-515xt CTO w/Windows 7 Professional SP1 x64 build 7601(6.1.7601) was purchased by ME, directly FROM HP (6-7 weeks ago). The OS IS AN OEM INSTALL (meaning it is chocked full of HP bloatware, etc.), AND THERE IS A GENUINE MICROSOFT WINDOWS 7 COA OEM STICKER ON THE CASE!...IS THIS CLEAR NOW?...

'...what do you mean by "went the OEM route"'- OEM=Original Equipment Manufacturer, as in I bought an OEM machine/system vs. a custom build, in my shop, by me, whereas I would purchase either a Full Retail version of Windows 7 Professional (N/A anymore), or an OEM version of Windows 7 Professional SP1 x64 with COA from a vendor source, such as newegg.com.

HP does NOT offer authentic OEM Windows discs anymore with a pc purchase- like in days gone by. They install a Recovery Partition (D:\), will sell you a 4 DVD Recovery Kit, or, as I did, burned my own 4 DVD Recovery kit from within Windows-ie- Cyberlink Recovery Manager installed as a prog, by HP, on my machine. I am trying, with success to get a legit Windows 7 Pro disc that is strictly the program without the OEM bloatware and added progs, although a couple of them are quite convenient for diagnostic purposes. Please note screen shots below.

There- I hope I have condensed and/or compressed everything to the point where y'all can comprehend now.

I hope this affords some clarity-

The original subject of this thread, System Restore Issue' appears to have been resolved. In all likelihood, it seems that the 2 KB's mentioned above, of which only one was installed on this machine, may have been the culprit.

I would like to extend a heartfelt thanks to everyone who participated- THANK YOU!

Kind Regards-
