Windows 7: Attempts to enable Windows System Protection fail

Attempts to enable Windows System Protection fail

I noticed that the System Restore protection was turned off on my Windows 7 64bit machine. When I went in to turn it on, I received the following error message, "Could not apply the settings for the following reason: The filename, directory name, or volume label syntax is incorrect. (0x8007007B)"

Thanks in advance for any help.

First and easiest fix for this would be a secure file check.

SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

[Quote]This error is caused by faulty imaging by the original equipment manufacturer (OEM) that results in the presence of an invalid volume. To see if this is the problem, go to System in Control Panel and open System Protection. There will be two volumes shown, one of which is selected and named “Missing.” Selecting C:\ and deselecting “Missing” solves the problem.[Quote]
