Windows 7: Windows 7 Start up Problems

I don't think auto updates will cause your issue. I set my updates to download and let me choose whether to install.

You can try to run the sfc /scannow 3 times with reboots after each one.

I am not sure if the updates are causing the problem or something else. But the problem still exits every time I shut down and restart and every time I am required to choose a new date for the system restore, as restoring to a previously used date also does not work.

I tried running the scan and this is what happened all the 3 times.

Before we suggest a clean install again, go to Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\Programs and Features and post a snip of it. You may have to make two snips to get it all. Screenshots and Files - Upload and Post in Seven Forums

Run SFC again to see if it will fix the files. If not, sometimes a Repair Install can set things right short of a clean reinstall or running Factory Recovery from disks or its partition.

A clean reinstall is much superior to the factory install, however, so take a look over the steps in the Perfect Reinstall link in my signature picture below to see if its something that interests you.

I don't know what you did wrong but those two snips aren't readable. I was going to check your installed programs for any which may cause issues.

See if you can read this now. I was able to zoom it and read it.

You can also monitor the logs and system resources in the Troubleshooting link in my signature picture below to look for clues to what caused your problem.

Since you have this curiousity, might as well get to know the tools which suss these things out.

Now I have run out of system restore dates. The system provides me with about 5 dates and I tried using all 5 of them with no success. How do I get some date, say three or four months ago ?

I did check the box "look for more dates" and it does not give any new dates.
