    Viruses often attack the system restore because it's such a threat to them - which is certainly possible.  Unfortunately, all my anti-virus, anti-malware and anti-spyware solutions are for Vista (which is the Forum, you are in).  You must post this question in the appropriate forum where they have the information, procedures and links to help you.

    One thing, if the system restore does not work in normal mode, it sometimes will run in Mode safe then start safe mode and try it.

    In addition, if you use any Norton product, turn it off, then restart and try to restore again - Norton is known to cause problems with system restore.

    Sometimes, the problem can be solved by turning the restoration of the system off and then back on.  Unfortunately, a side effect of this is to lose all your restore points you want to restore this may not be such a good option to try (even if it can correct the underlying problem): http://support.microsoft.com/kb/310405/en-us.

    If none of the above works, please repost your question on the Forums of XP to: http://social.answers.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/category/windowsxp where the XP experts will be happy to help you.

    Good luck!

  • Envy of HP dv7-7332ea - System Restore does not work on windows 8

    Hey there,

    I recently bought this machine about a month ago. I used the Windows 8 System Restore feature to restore my pc to a previous state.

    However, after running it, I got a message saying: it failed and to ensure my anti virus is disabled. Accordingly, I have disabled Norton and tried again but it still does not work.

    Previously, the only problem I had with the pc was that he locked himself completely and therefore I turned off the machine that I have been unable to close.

    When I rebooted, HP Support Assistant could not run and so I uninstalled and then reinstalled from website theHP. It is now resolved. The thing is I'm a little scared that something is wrong with the machine that is the reason why I think that the system restore does not work.

    I'm a newbie on the computers here. Could you please give me some advice to diagnose if there is nothing wrong with my machine and fix the system restore?

    See you soon,.

    Hi Damon,

    Norton is a component called 'Tamper Protection' that should be disabled before a system restore can be performed - for more details on this topic, see the following link.

  • System Restore does not work, once again.

    Hi, I read a topic of 2010 that has not yet been answered. I worked with a tech at Microsoft by e-mail, but when I answered: System Restore didn't work. Now it does not work yet. I had installed Returnil system safe, but I got an error msg 0 x 80004005, (third-party antivirus), so I uninstalled the program. I went through the registry and delete something with Returnil all 4 sections of the registry. Remove the common files folder that was left after uninstalling. Restarted my computer several times. I use MSE, with free versions of spywareblaster and MBAB, who are both at the request not in real time. I tried to restore to a time before I had installed Returnil first, (I installed and uninstalled 3 times in 2 days) and could not. I tried to use a snapshot to restore spywareblaster and managed to restore to the point 2 x before installing because forward the installation of point returnil has been altered. At the moment no malware has been detected and no threat of MSE. What to do next?

    Thanks in advance for any help. Liz.

    Here's my usual route to find out how to reinstall System Restore:

    If you have already run MBAM and SAS, temporarily disabled your antivirus and anti-malware applications and tried your Safe Mode system restore and you still get the restoration of the system to work, you must reinstall just your system restore.  You do not have to reinstall XP - just reinstall the system restore part.

    System Restore is a frequent target of attacks by malicious software.

    When you reinstall the system restore, all your current Restore Points will be deleted and you must restart your computer once the installation is complete.  After the reboot, a new Restore Point will be created as a new point of system control in your calendar of SR.

    If your system had a malware infection, it could be that some of the files in your old Restore Points are also infected up to wipe out the 'old' and new is often a good idea if you wonder if the old Restore Points are infected or not.

    Assuming that your XP is installed on drive C of your computer:

    As you go through the reinstallation of the RS, the resettlement will be asked to locate certain files as you go along and ask your XP installation CD.   If you do not have a genuine XP bootable installation CD, you can change the path where Setup looks for files one at a time, because they are needed.  More on that later.

    Navigate to the following folder:

    c:\Windows\Inf

    Locate and right-click the following file:

    SR.inf

    Choose Install

    If you can not see the sr.inf file, set up your system to show hidden files and show file extensions.

    Click on tools, Options, view and turn on "Show the hidden files and folders" and uncheck "Hide extensions for known file types", then you should be able to see the file c:\windows\inf\sr.inf.

    Installation can request files from the c:\windows\inf\386 folder.  It would be your installation CD bootable XP genuine if you have one and the Service Pack installed on your system must be the same as the CD that you will use.

    You don't need absolutely a CD to do the reinstall, because files must already be on your system somewhere if SR was working before.

    If you are prompted for a file, and you can't find it where I suggest in my example below (it works on my system), you need to search your hard drive and find where the files on your system.

    If the request to a file and you don't know where he is, let waiting for installation and click Start, search, and search for it
    has requested the file and find it on your system.  If SR has already worked before, the file is already on your system somewhere.

    Search finds the requested file, go back to the installation and specify the path where you found the file requested and click OK.  Installation can request several files along the way, but you can find them all.

    Here's how my system works when I reinstall SR when I pretend that I don't have a genuine XP bootable installation CD:

    When you are asked:

    SR.sys

    Point the install in c:\windows\system32\drivers

    When you are asked:

    c:\windows\system32\srclient.dll

    Point install it in c:\windows\system32

    When you are asked:

    Filelist. XML

    Point of installation at c:\windows\system32\restore (or c:\windows\ServicePackFiles\i386)

    When you are asked:

    srframe. MMF

    Point installation c:\windows\system32\dllcache (c:\windows\system32\restore)

    Once installation is complete, you will receive a message that you must restart your computer.

    Restart your computer and look at your schedule of SR.  You should have a new point system control in your calendar.

    When you get SR working again, I ran MBAM and SAS to make sure that your system is reasonably clean of malware.

    The day that you think you need to help the system restore you is not the day to discover the system restore does not work, then you need to test.

    After the reinstallation, manually create a Restore Point and test the restoration process and make sure that you are convinced that it works from one end to the other.

  • System Restore does not work in windows 7? not even in administrator mode

    WINDOWS 7 IS MY OS. AM NOT ABLE TO RUN THE SYSTEM RESTORE. HE IS THERE A NO RESPONSE AFTER I SELECTED THE SYSTEM RESTORE SEVERAL TIMES.

    Sushant salvation,

    To help you better, please answer these questions.

    1 you get a specific error message?

    2. you try to restore the computer to an earlier time?

    3. you try to create a restore point?

    4 did you do changes on the computer before the show?

    I suggest you follow the provided methods to solve the problem.

    Method 1: Try to perform a system restore, safe mode.

    Start your computer in safe mode

    http://Windows.Microsoft.com/en-us/Windows7/start-your-computer-in-safe-mode

    If you are able to perform the system restore in safe mode, I suggest you perform the clean boot and check that there could be some third-party application that may be causing the problem.

    Step 2:

    Put the computer in a clean boot state to see if there is a software conflict as the clean boot helps eliminate software conflicts.

    http://support.Microsoft.com/kb/929135

    Note: After completing the steps in the clean boot troubleshooting, follow step 3 of the link to start the computer to a Normal startup mode.

    Important: If you use system restore when the computer is in safe mode, you can't undo the restore operation. However, you can run System Restore again and choose a different restore point, if any.

    Undo system restore

    http://Windows.Microsoft.com/en-in/Windows7/undo-system-restore

    Method 2

    You can also try temporarily disabling computer security software and check if it makes a difference. If the system restore works fine after you turn off the anti-virus, you can contact the manufacturer of security software and check if you need to change the settings

    Disable the antivirus software

    http://Windows.Microsoft.com/en-us/Windows7/disable-antivirus-software

    Note: Antivirus software can help protect your computer against viruses and other security threats. In most cases, you should not disable your antivirus software. If you do not disable temporarily to install other software, you must reactivate as soon as you are finished. If you are connected to the Internet or a network during the time that your antivirus software is disabled, your computer is vulnerable to attacks.

    If the problem persists, perform the restore from Winre system.

  • my system restore does not work I get a screen white how fix this?

    do not know why it does this

    Do you mean your restore page of the system restore just says calendar system in the title bar and the calendar is just a blank white screen?

    Looks like your file jscript.dll became somehow not registered so you can re-record it.

    There are probably a few other things that do not work you know yet, so fix them all at once.

    Re-registration of these DLLs is correct, even if they do not need renewal.  You can also re-register the dll before the scans that can solve the problem, but the scans are always recommended.

    Click Start, run, and in the box enter orders following one at a time.  Click the OK button to execute each command one at a time.

    regsvr32 jscript.dll
    regsvr32 vbscript .dll
    regsvr32 /i mshtml.dll (it's a look of slash)

    The last order for mshtml load the DLL but can also contain a harmless warning depending on your environment.

    Check your system restore calendar now.

    The symptom of the problem of fixing and fixing the problem are two different things.

    System Restore is a frequent target of attacks by malicious software.  If SR was working before and is now afflicted, run some scans and then fix any problems.

    Remember that the system restore is not a time machine.

    Download, install, update and do a full scan with these free malware detection programs:

    Malwarebytes (MMFA): http://malwarebytes.org/
    SUPERAntiSpyware: (SAS): http://www.superantispyware.com/

    They can be uninstalled later if you wish.

    If sfc/scannow solves your problems, I'll send you (or your charitable organization preferred) $10 American.

    Please note that I did have to send $10 to anyone, ever.
