Recently updated from Windows 7 Home Premium to Windows 7 Professional.  Installed Virtual XP.  I don't have any restore points and can't create one.  I Get the message "The specified object was not found.  (0x80024308)".  I tried disabling antivirus, firewall, and malware programs.  Disconnected from the internet.  Tried to create a restore point after clean boot, ckdsk, and while in safe mode.  Same message.  Could there be a 3rd party software blocking my system restore other then what I've already mentioned?  Any suggestions?

 Two suggestions.  First run SFC.  Click Start and type CMD in the search box, then right-click CMD.EXE and click Run as Administrator.  Then type SFC /scannow.  It will run a couple of minutes.  If that doesn't fix the problem, disconnect from the Internet and temporarily disable your antivirus.  Then try creating a restore point.  Reenable your antivirus before reconnecting to the Internet.

`

 Good luck.

wpgwpg - Forgot to say that I also ran SFC /scannow.  Didn't work.  I did diable Avast AV and tried to create a restore point.  Notta.  Will try again.

 

Roodo - It shows Protection On for (C:) (System),  Showing Off for System.

 I'd install the free version of MalwareBytes, get it up to date and then boot to Safe Mode.  Then I'd do a full system scan with both MalwareBytes and my antivirus.  I'd also make sure I had my data backed up because something's definitely amiss with your computer.

 

 Good luck.

Ran virus scans from MalwareBytes and Avast.  Still gives the same error ("The specified object was not found.  (0x80024308)").  Even CC Cleaner says that my Sytem Restore latest one is disabled for system safety.

First see whats being shadowed

Run this command and display the results mate

vssadmin list shadowstorage >> C:\VSSShadow.txt

If you want to just delete all the shadow copies then run this command for C: drive, but just wait first)

vssadmin delete shadows /for=C: /all
