    The error code you are showing is for windows update so maybe you have an error in system restore that was caused by a failed update. Shut off any anti-virus or other programs that may be updating in the background as this can interfer with the update and then run windows update again and see if you get a good restore point or just create a new restore point.
  2. Followed your instructions, restore now working without any problem.many thanks for your help, probably saved me many hours of torment.
