Sounds like a permissions issue. Are you running System Restore manually? If so try running it as Administrator.

Do you have the system set to also automatically create restore points? Have these saved?

Hi Jessica,
Yes I have it set to automatically do system restore but it does not save my restored points.

Hi Techgeek,
I try running System Restore as an Administrator like you suggested but the restored still disappeared once the computer is rebooted. Any other suggestions?

Thanks,

I had a problem with system restore on widows 7 turned out to be another piece of software causing the problem, it was called rapport and is used by many online banking services as a security measure. The problem being is it would refuse permission for windows to restore, even though windows appeared to be restoring I would always end up with the failed message.

I had to go in to services and disable rapport to be able to do a system restore, the easiest way to check if this or some other piece of software is causing the problem is to boot into safe mode (press and hold F8 once your PC has past the post message but before windows starts to boot) once in safe mode do a system restore, if it works then you have interference from another piece of software

Nobody. I mean NOBODY has ever solved this problem!

Windows Vista, 7 and 8 are all absolute rubbish.

Haven't you hear the news?

Microsoft just made a financial loss.

In five years it will be long forgotten.

Look at Nokia! :hello:
