Windows 7: Why my restore points disappear?

14 Jan 2010   #11

Windows 7 Ultimate 32 bit

I think the reason you had the problem in the first place was due to Norton Ghost as you stated yourself you should not of had to make those changes to your system something was fouled up by Norton Ghost removal (big surprise)

Win7 65 Ultimate

I tried all the above. No joy.
I turned off hibernate and the problem went away.
Hibernate is not an option in my control Panel > Power management or Start>restart.
(I have no idea how hibernate got turned on--on a desktop even.)
In a command window: powercfg.exe /hibernate off

Fixed! I can't tell you how many hours/months it took me to figure this out. Thanks to "She who must be obeyed."

I leave it as homework to figure out why this fixed it.
