Windows 7: Restore will not restore!!

22 May 2011   #11

windows 7 home premium 32bit

ok I have reinstalled the touchpad and scrolling is now working

I have made sure all the items listed are set to start and automatic

created a restore point (all others were still there too) restarted computer....tried to do system restore again but same message came back that I have put at beginning of this thread....

So....what else could be stopping it from completing its system restore successfully?

This is driving me potty now

one of your specific problems, I suggest you include links to your ongoing Win 7 problems being dealt with at this Forum.

From memory I have seen you seeking help in multiple areas such as Drivers, IE 8 & 9 & now System Restore.
All of your problems may be linked.
It may be time for a repair install - or more!

My drivers post came about due to me uninstalling Microsoft Security Suite which was suggested by Jacee in a previous post on vista forum to choose which to keep as running it with avast could make them clash....that left behind some files that I was unaware of which caused the device issue to show up purely by chance when I ran a health check in the system performance....They were not actually causing an issue ....just stagnant files.

My issue stands with the internet explorer not working popup.....

The system restore came about when I went to go back to a restore point to see if that would get rid of the problem internet explorer popup and thats when I found it was not working....for some reason.....It was working fine in either March or April when I did a restore when my scrolling did not work after performing something I was told to do on other forum.. So thats why I now have a restore thread

This error can occur if the Shadow Copy services are not running. The backup applications and System Restore depend on these services.
Cick on Start and type services.msc then click Services.
Scroll down and double click the Microsoft Software Shadow Copy Provider.
In the Startup Type menu, it should be Automatic and started.

Note: If itís not started then try to start the service; however chances are that you may lose all restore points.

Next, scroll down to the Volume Shadow Copy service and perform the same steps.

NOTE: Disabling System restore could delete all the System Restore points stored.
I did that several times but it just seems to stay on automatic but goes back to stopped afterwards, as it stays on started until I go off and when I check later its back to stopped again ....weird
