Hello, I have a problem with Vista not making restore points, while doing a system check on a Vista laptop I noticed that the restore points that I had set some time ago were not working, also the system would not allow me to set restore points. If I try to set a restore point I get the message: Restore point could not be created for the following reason: The volume shadow copy provider is not registered in the system (0x80042304). In 'services' both the "Volume shadow copies" and "Windows backup" are set as 'started' and 'automatic'. I have Avast Internet Security on the system which has been uninstalled and re-installed on the advice of one of their 'service techs', which made no difference at all.

Has anyone got any ideas?.

Thanks.

LOL...I'm not a star, just a guy who's fairly adept at using Google :).  Glad it worked for you.

 

Happy computing :).
