New to the forum, but long time Windows user. I have Windows 7 Pro 64 bits SP1 installed.
Here's the deal. My system crashed overnight (no one knows why). When it boots back up, it works fine for a while and then Freezes (no more mouse mouvement, no more num-lock light switching on/off). Windows Event is of course empty.
I was able to figure out where the source of the problem is. Seems that the whole Restore Point thing is corrupted. Including the Auto part where once in a while it creates a back-up point during boot up.
I have tried in normal mode:
1 - Accesing the restore to a previous point through Windows normal mode: Freezes every single time when i hit the configure button to remove the Restore point from my C:\ Drive.
2 - Accessing it through CCLeaner and trying to remove a single Restore Point: Freezes.
3 - Accessing it through Disk Cleaner, Delete all the restore points. It works... but never ever delete anything.
I have tried in Safe Mode:
1 - Accessing the Security Protection tab: no succes
It doesn't show in the tab
2 - Accessing the DiskCleaner, Delete all the restore points: Error 1084, not working in safe mode.
3 - Deleting the restore points using CCleaner, Error 1084 not working in safe mode.
I have scan the PC in safe mode with Eset node32, Malwarebytes and Spybot and all is good.
so in short: My whole Restore and Restore Auto-Creation point is completly corrupted and i'm looking for a way to fix that! Either using the registry or anything else. Anyone has an idea? No i did not instal software lately (it's been 2 monthes), no i did not change any hardware for the past 2 years.
