Hi I am trying to create a restore point and I keep getting the message that a restore point can not be made to reboot and try again but it doesn't work.

Also, if I am surfing the net too much or refreshing the page I get the message that ie has encountered and problem and will now close.

I have run mbam, I have done a complete system scan with antivirus and nothing is coming up.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Try the fix at Kelly's Korner.

Restore/Enable System Restore - #278 on the left.

Right click on it and save the .reg file to your desktop. Then, double click on the file icon (on your desktop) to merge it into your registry. You may need to reboot your computer for the changes to take affect.

With any fix like this you should create a new restore point and backup the registry first. For backing up the registry I like to use ERUNT.

Hi, I cannot do anything with that file. I get the message This file does not have a program associated with it for performing this action. Create an association in the Folder Options control panel. I am not familiar with this so I am very hesitant.

Also I cannot create a restore point before preforming anything.

My internet explorer crashes very frequently when browsing the internet. The error message says it happens in ntddll. I have tried regcure and it says it fixes them but they come right back.

Any help would be appreciated.

Go Start > Run and type regedit.

Then go File > Import and import the file you downloaded from Kelly's Korner.

Try running the System File Checker.
