Can't create restore point, error 0x800423F4

I want to create restore points so if anything goes wrong, I can revert back. But now it's saying,

The restore point could not be created for the following reason:

The writer experienced a non-transient error. If the backup process is retried, the error is likely to reoccur.
(0x800423F4)

Please try again.

How do I solve it?

To solve this problem, you need to find out what writer is experiencing this error, on the computer.

To do this, open an elevated command prompt, and type:

Code:
vssadmin list writers <enter>
and note what the response you obtain.

You might want to try a Repair Install

Repair Install to Fix Windows 7 Without Reformatting by Britec

You will need your 25 character product key, you can obtain it from your computer with
KeyFinder | Magical Jelly Bean
You want the CD key not Product ID. I usually copy and paste it into, say, notepad and print it to avoid typos.

If you don't have a Win7 DVD you can obtain an ISO from
TechBench by WZT
The only working downloads are for Win7 Ultimate x64 and Win7 Ultimate x32

To make all version available use
eicfg_removal_utility.zip

You can't copy and paste an ISO file to DVD or USB Flash Drive, it has to be burned
To dvd Burn .ISO Image Files ImgBurn
To USB Rufus - Create bootable USB drives the easy way

To avoid days of updates, 230+ and counting, and numerous reboots, use
Website Dism++ | New Windows Utility.
Direct Download DISM++
Yes, it's from Chinese firm! When you run it, click on Updates, then Scan, Choose the updates you wish to install, and then click Install updates.

Any questions, we're here for you!
