When I opt to restore my computer to a previous restore point, after a while, the computer would tell me "unable to restore to previous point". This happens to my laptop and desktop. Please help.
I suspect that your SR is corrupt and unable to complete the restore process.
There are several reasons this can happen, I would lean toward the main reason being that most of the time there is to much space allotted for SR. By default the drive setting is 12% and with the large drives available now days that is a lot of space & restore points. I recommend setting it to about 750mb - 1 gb. To set the size of the restore folder:
Right Click MyComputer>Properties>System Restore>Click the drive then click settings
After doing this then Create a Restore Point, Then go to Disk Cleanup and remove the old restore points for they are corrupt anyway.
Start>Programs>Accessories>System Tools>Disk Cleanup>More Options tab>Cleanup button in the System Restore section this will erase all but the last restore point.
Another reason would be adware &/or malware. I suggest running a scan with these free tools.
