I ran the program and it said registering VSS and then just went away how do I know if it successfully did this?

Does it take long for this to happen? I ran it and I saw a message for about a minute or two and nothing else happened

If it did the job, you will know by running system restore.

Any help would be greatly appreciated, I completely re-installed Windows and I am still getting an error when I try to make a back up of my hard drive. Error is as follows: An error was detected by the volumeshadow copy service. The problem occurred while trying to contact VSS writers. Verify that the event system service and the VSS service are running and check for associated errors in the event logs. (0x80042318).

Same problem here, only I can create a restore point but System Restore itself fails to run when trying to open the program.

I have run MWB & Combofix and still have the problem.
