Searching in System Protection - No drives show

I have a slightly different problem. When I go to the System Protection tab under available drives all I get is searching, it does not show the drives.

How did you fix it????

Hi,,

I have the same problem. When I go to the "System Protection" tab of System Properties, the "Protection Settings/ Available Drives" just shows "Searching....." I can't figure out how to get it to see Drive C and allow me to check the box!

JosephS....can you please let me know how you fixed it??? I'm running Windows 7 Home Premium on a system that I upgraded (clean install) from Windows XP.

Thanks,
BOb

I also have the same problem, I was having a problem getting FTM 2010 to install and the tech I was working with instructed my to run 'cleanup_tool' and then reinstall the .NET fiels. I had created a restore point just prior so it was working fine then. After running the cleanup tool file I found that I could not get system protection to run - like the others above it sits there searching for drives and all there is activated is C:.
Now when if it tries a Windows Update it hangs trying to create a restore point.
I tried a system file check but in found no integrity violations.
How can I get it back to where it was?

1) Run CMD as admin and at the command prompt type: sfc /sacnnow. Then hit enter. See if that resolves your problem.

2) Can you see the drives in System protection while in safe mode?

3) As a side thought, while in windows, turn off your antivirus app, then try.

Appreciate the activity on this thread. I have not been able to solve issue on my system.

- same behavior in safe mode and with (norton) antivirus off.

- running sfc /scannow - I get this console message:

Windows Resource Protection found corrupt files but was unable to fix some of them. (tail of the CBS.log file is below... it looks like there is some issue with tcpmon.ini...)
