Vista Home Basic. My restore backup and restore is "RunOnce", how do I change to normal?

I downloaded a program from the internet and immediately unitnstalled, because it was not what I expected. Now my "backup and restore is on" RunOnce.  How to change backup and restore back to normal?



1. What is the name of the program you downloaded / installed?

I suggest that you perform a System Restore to the point your backup and restoration were normal.

  • Vista home basic System Restore [system takes over 16 hours, and again during initialization

    I have Vista Home Basic and the 17/01/2010, I got a virus called Desktop Defender 2010.  BAD!

    I could buy & download Spyware Doctor and Antivirus. as soon as I activated the Spyware, I lost my internet connection and have not been able to reconnect again! My Dr. said Spyare my Antivirus is NOT enabled: my problem... I can't connect to the internet for updates or to contact PCTools and reactivate them me so I can clean the virus... (FYI my computer husbands did NOT have a virus when I added Dr. Spyware, but his doctor spyware antivirus was down too and I got chatting to PCTools and responsive guy there, no problem) If I could do it online, I believe that my Spyware is going to fix it.

    I followed a lot of instructions step by step to remove Desktop Defender 2010, finally eliminating MOST, I could even remove from Add/REMOVE PROGRAMS, but I'm afraid not, not all. (perhaps even hidden files?)

    So, I see that I also called Virus Elite v5.0, which is a virus. I have to be able to remove this slot add/REMOVE PROGRAMS. I removed it (i Think)... (not sure about hidden files)

    But there is something else... e5t4wrvrt8wl.exe this thing appears now instead where Desktop Defender used to. And I saw in my departure up...c:\users\shelbyyys 8d\appdata\roaming\e5t4wrvrt8wl.exe I don't know how to get out of there.

    also I tried to restore the system once a couple and they have failed, usually in a few minutes... then I started last night a restoration of the system, set at 1/11/2010...and she is still ongoing, 16 hours now what the heck?

    Where should I go, what am I doing here?

    Thank you very much

  • Windows Vista Home Basic Edition keeps looping and will not start

    Windows Vista Home Basic Edition will not boot to the Welcome screen. It keeps restarting loop. I tried to go into safe mode, but who does not start too. Loops of safe mode and return to the start screen.

    I have a dell laptop and I just restalled operating system. I had Windows Update set to automatically download and install. PC worked great until the next day (after the time programmed for automatic updates). I'm assuming that the started after some windows updates when installed. Unfortunately, I can not enter in Windows or Normal or Safe Mode.


    If safe mode does not and you do not have a Vista DVD from Microsoft, do a repair disc to do a Startup Repair:

    Download the ISO on the link provided and make a record of repair time it starts.

    Go to your Bios/Setup, or the Boot Menu at startup and change the Boot order to make the DVD/CD drive 1st in the boot order, then reboot with the disk in the drive.

    At the startup/power on you should see at the bottom of the screen either F2 or DELETE, go to Setup/Bios or F12 for the Boot Menu.

    When you have changed that, insert the Bootable disk you did in the drive and reboot.

    Link above shows what the process looks like and a manual, it load the repair options.

It cannot be used to install or reinstall Windows Vista, and is just a Windows PE interface to recovering your PC. Technically, we could re-create this installation with downloadable media media freely from Microsoft (namely the Microsoft WAIK, several gigabyte download); but it is pretty darn decent of Microsoft to present Windows users who might not be able to create such a thing on their own.

  • where can I get a winows vista home basic startup disk? And can I use a back up from another pc which is vista Home premium?

    be necessary to restart the laptop with Vista Home Basic, but do not have a backup, can make a backup of my desktop vista Home premium if it will work?


    You cannot use a backup from a Home Premium computer to reinstall Vista Basic on another computer.

    There are several methods to reinstall Vista.

    There is no Windows Vista downloads available from Microsoft.

    You can contact your computer manufacturer and ask them to send you a set of recovery disks.

    They should do this for a small fee.

    To reinstall Vista using their recovery disk/s, you start from the 1st recovery disk they provide and follow the manufacturer's instructions to reinstall:

    You need to change the Boot order to make the DVD/CD drive 1st in the boot order:

    How to change the Boot order in BIOS:

    "How to replace Microsoft software or hardware, order service packs and replace product manuals.

    And if you have never received a recovery disk when you bought your computer, there should be a recovery Partition on the hard drive to reinstall Vista on how you purchased your computer.

    The recovery process can be started by pressing a particular combination of the key or keys at startup. (Power on / start)

    Maybe it's F10, F11, Alt + F10, etc., depending on the manufacturer.

    Ask them to the proper key sequence.

    And if you do not score a manufacturer of recovery on your hard drive, you should be able to make your own recovery from her disks to reinstall the operating system.

    Go to programs > name of the manufacturer of your computer > then their system or recovery tools software topics for them, depending on how it is formulated.

    If you can't find any reference to it, contact the manufacturer for advice on how to make these recovery disks.

    Some manufacturers have more available Vista recovery disks.

    If this happens, you may need to try this instead:

    You can also borrow and use a Microsoft Vista DVD, which contains the files for the different editions of Vista (Home Basic, Home Premium, Business and Ultimate) must be installed. The product key on your computer / Laptop box determines what Edition is installed.

    Other manufacturers recovery DVDs are should not be used for this purpose.

    And you need to know the version of 'bit' for Vista, as 32-bit and 64-bit editions come on different DVDs

    Here's how to do a clean install of Vista using a DVD of Vista from Microsoft:

    "How to do a clean install and configure with a full Version of Vista '

    And once the operating system is installed, go to your computer manufacturer's website and get the latest drivers for your particular model or laptop computer.

    And phone Activation may be necessary when you use the above installation method.

  • Windows complete PC Restore on Vista Home Basic, how to create a system disk image

    In the menu system for Vista Home Basic Recovery Options, there is an option to make a "Windows complete PC Restore". The description of this option says "restore your entire server or personal computer from a backup image. Well, sounds wonderful. My problem is to find the software to create a backup image of my personal computer first. I tried to create an image of my system disk by looking at the "Backup and restore" software that comes with Vista Home Basic. I couldn't find something that was talking about creating an "image" of my system drive. Only the options to back up the disks. Microsoft use the terms 'backup' and 'image' fairly loosely or as interchangeable terms? Im a little confused. My ultimate goal is to create a disk image of my system can be restored very quickly in the menu options of Vista Home Basic System Recovery.

  • Acer Aspire laptop with Vista Home Basic Edition does not, System Restore does not, sfc, find corrupt files but do not repair. Need help!

    Hi, I have an Acer laptop Aspire with Vista Home Basic Edition that came pre-installed, so no records only the disk hard drive partition.

    I turned on my laptop today and it starts but the loading bar of stalls at the black screen with "(c) Microsoft Corporation" and dragging green. The slide bar will continue to drag, but nothing else happens which means that I understand even as much as the login screen. I rebooted and tried Windows recovery, but the only remedy to what he suggests is a restoration of the system, which does not have any point, I try to restore it.

    To remedy this, I have connected in safe mode and ran the SFC command prompt. It scans my system and told to find corrupted files, but he can't heal some. This is where my knowledge limit runs out. I don't know how to fix the files that the SFC cannot. (Also I created a journal using the findstr command prompt and checked but it say anywhere that it was unable to fix it so I'm not even sure how to identify corrupted files)

    As it's an Acer laptop, Aspire I'll try their eRecovery tool to return my computer to factory settings, but it won't work in safe mode, and as I said I can not connect normally. I tried alt and F10 at the initial boot screen when I turn on, it loads the windows files and shows the Acer "Please wait a moment" screen and then nothing happens again.

    I can't afford to get it fixed, and there is no chance I can get a new laptop. Any ideas/help? Thank you.

    I apologize if the question has been discussed previously.  I appreciate all help to address this issue.

    I'm sorry, but Windows Vista Basic cannot save to a network location.  It can only back up to a local disk.

    Backup to a network location requires a more advanced version of Windows Vista.

  • I have a serial number valid for windows Vista Home Basic, but my hard drive crashed and I have no way to re - install vista on my computer. I am looking for a download so I can do it.

    Basically, I installed windows 2000 on my machine and I can't find a download for windows vista home basic that doesn't have some kind of crack or keygen. I want a legal copy not a hack. I have the serial number supplied with my computer. where can I find this download or get a drive.

    Here are all LEGAL for Vista:

    How to get Vista recovery Media or the Vista recovery Partition on your computer back to factory settings.

    There is no Vista free download legal available.

    Contact your computer manufacturer and ask them to send a recovery disk/s Vista set.

    Normally, they do this for a cost of $ small.

    In addition, ask them if you have a recovery Partition on your computer/laptop to restore it to factory settings.

    See if a manual provided with the computer or go to the manufacturer's website, email or you can call for information on how to make a recovery.

    Normally, you have to press F10 or F11 at startup to start the recovery process...

    Another way I've seen on some models is press F8 and go to a list of startup options, and launch a recovery of standards of plant with it, by selecting the repair option.

    Ask them if you can also make recovery disk/s for the recovery Partition in case of a system Crash or hard drive failure.

    They will tell you how to do this.

    Every computer manufacturer has their own way of making recovery disk/s.

    Or borrow a good Microsoft Vista DVD (not Dell, HP, etc).
    A good Vista DVD contains all versions of Vista.
    The product key determines which version of Vista is installed.

    There are 2 disks of Vista: one for 32-bit operating system, and one for 64-bit operating system.

    If install a cleaning is required with a good DVD of Vista (not HP, Dell recovery disks):

    Go to your Bios/Setup, or the Boot Menu at startup and change the Boot order to make the DVD/CD drive 1st in the boot order, then reboot with the disk in the drive.

    At the startup/power on you should see at the bottom of the screen either F2 or DELETE, go to Setup/Bios or F12 for the Boot Menu

    MS advice on the conduct of clean install.

    Super Guide Windows Vista Installation

    After installation > go to the website of the manufacturer of your computer/notebook > drivers and downloads Section > key in your model number > get latest Vista drivers for it > download/install them.

  • Online backup service for my Vista Home Basic

    I tried to do a full backup of my Vista Home Basic OS. By following the instructions on the Web help and Support site, I used a total of 12 CD to do a full backup.  It took a such incredible amount of time and money and I still don't know what the correct procedure. I've seen many services online that offer to do the same thing for a minimal amount. And the files would be available at any time and any PC. I don't know what to do. Pay your bills online. I downloaded a lot of music and family photos. Can someone please advise me on how best to safeguard my information simply and safely? I don't mind paying the monthly or annual fees as long as it is considered to be safe.

    Thanks in advance for any help you can provide.




    The best value for money option is to save a number of different external hard drives and store them off-site (perhaps in different places).

    Each online backup provider has different rates depending on how you want to store and their prices change over time. To learn more, you may need to search online using your favorite search engine.
