Windows 7: Difficulties in creating restore points

Like I said in my first post, and never got an answer to. Did you install any software prior to you noticing the system restore issue? Do you suspect your security software? Have you read event viewer for any errors?

If you have tackled all that, then my next course of action would be a repair install. Because at that point something is wrong with Windows. But before you do that try a sfc /scannow in the command prompt. Run command prompt as Admin.

I think it's just something I'm doing wrong in the procedure, but will run an sfc / scannow at your suggestion.
I don't have anything new to speak of-- no dual boot or any of that. After sfc I'll run the repair disk but I don't
expect to find anything.

SFC /SCANNOW didn't find anything.


Perhaps I can ask it this way. How do make and retain restore points manuall? For instance running
various cleaner systems and programs I this started when I the restore point that each made did not save.


What I see is an automatic restore point made on the current day. But I don't know how to adjust the

Task Scheduler either. I'm going to go lookat my other setup and see if
over time anything has changed. This is not a problem I've ever noticed.


But that question here is to make and retain whatever restore point I or a uninstall program like Revo Uninstaller runs at execution.
