Can't Create a System Restore Point and Backup

I Will Upload The Screenshots

I Tried This Method Too But No Help

Boot into Safe Mode without networking.
Open a elevated command prompt.
Type net stop winmgmt and hit Enter. This will stop the Windows Management Instrumentation Service.
In Windows Explorer, go to C:\Windows\System32\wbem and rename the Repository folder to Repositoryold.
Restart the computer to normal mode (not Safe Mode).
Open a elevated command prompt.
Type net stop winmgmt and hit Enter.
Type winmgmt /resetRepository and hit Enter.
Restart the computer to normal mode (not Safe Mode).

Make sure that the VSS service isn't disabled

Changing the startup type of the VSS service and rebooting can often resolve issues.

Right click on 'My Computer'.
Select 'Manage'.
Select the 'Services' tree node.
Right click on 'Volume Shadow Copy'
Select Properties
Change the startup type to 'Automatic'

Sometimes re-registering VSS core components can fix errors. Copy the following commands to Notepad and save the file with a ‘.bat’ extension. Run the .bat file by opening a command prompt and entering the .bat file name.

cd /d %windir%\system32
net stop vss
net stop swprv
regsvr32 /s ole32.dll
regsvr32 /s oleaut32.dll
regsvr32 /s vss_ps.dll
vssvc /register
regsvr32 /s /i swprv.dll
regsvr32 /s /i eventcls.dll
regsvr32 /s es.dll
regsvr32 /s stdprov.dll
regsvr32 /s vssui.dll
regsvr32 /s msxml.dll
regsvr32 /s msxml3.dll
regsvr32 /s msxml4.dll
vssvc /register
net start swprv
net start vss
