Hi All, I Cannot do a ‘System Restore’ OR Create a System Restore Point? Something must have Happened During the Last "Problem" I had when I tried to Uninstall “Comodo” Backup?

I only just realised that their has been no Restore Point Since that Date so I tred to Create a New one and No Go" so only Restore Point left is “Deleted Comodo dd.mm.yy”. It was when I Deleted Comodo’ that I got into Strife Last Time (see my Last Thread)

I have Included a Screen Shot of the Error Thanks In Ant - Regards Dazza :)

With you computer offline, temporarily disable you antivirus and try to do a System Restore again.

 

If this doesn't work enable the antivirus and then do the following.

 

Warning:  Disabling items in Services or Startup may leave your anitivius disabled until the process is ended.  For this reason I would suggest that you perform this process off line.
 
Part A
 
(1)  Click on the Start orb, then type msconfig.exe in the Search programs and files box.  
 
(2)  When msconfig is seen in the pane above the search box and under Programs, right click on it, then click on Run as administrator.

If you are prompted for an administrator password or for confirmation, you should enter the password or provide confirmation. 
 
Part B
 
(1)  Click on the General tab.   
 
(2)  Click the Selective startup option. 
 
(3)  Remove the check mark in the Load startup items  check box. 
 
msconfig_zps77b1ef82.png
 
Part C
 
(1)  Click on the Services tab. 
 
(2)  Place a check mark in the Hide all Microsoft services check box, this will remove the Microsoft Services from the list but will still be running. 
 
(3)  Click Disable all, this will remove all of the check marks in the Services list, then click on Apply, then OK.  Click on Restart in the window that opens.
 
When the computer is restarted try doing a System Restore.
 
When you a finished go back to System Configuration and click on the General, then click on Normal Startup, click on OK, then restart your computer.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

Thanks DC3 I did all that But to no Advantage Both times I received the Same “errors” Restore Failed? I did as you asked But the only way I could find to stop Kaspersky was to Go to GUI and set it to turn off for for one Hour I tried to turn it of in Task Manager but it would not? Cheers Dazza

Hi there,

Let's see if this works.

- Start the computer and press F8 on boot up and select 'Safe Mode without networking'.

- In the start menu type 'cmd' (without quotes) and on the top search result right-click the program and choose 'Run as administrator'

- Type "net stop winmgmt" without quotes and press enter to make sure the WindowsManagementInstrumentation (WMI) service is not running.

- In the start menu click 'computer' on the right hand side. Go to the windows\system32\WBEM\ folder and rename the Repository folder to something else like OLDRepository (right click and choose 'Rename Folder'.

- Reboot and restart as normal.

- In the start menu type 'cmd' (without quotes) and at the top right click the program and choose 'Run as administrator'

- Type 'net stop winmgmt' (without quotes) and press enter to stop the wmi service.

- Type 'winmgmt /resetRepository' (without quotes)and restart the system.

Let me know how it goes.

Alex

Hi Alex Thanks for your Help, But its still the Same I could not do the 'Safe Mode' I Tried F8, F10, F12 and Nothing works just Reboots straight back to the Desktop??

I have had a Terrible time with this PC from the first time I started it out of the Box the First time I tried to start it Locked Me Out, had to Reinstall Win every time (5 Times Now) and the F Button thing happens every time the Last time after 3 Days I was told to hold F12 Down and hold it down BEFORE I Pressed the Start Button - Worked that time -  Not this (3) Time?

So i will await your Reply Regards Dazza :smash: :clapping:

Please run sfc /scannow
 
The sfc /scannow command scans all protected system files and replaces corrupted and incorrect versions with correct Microsoft versions.
 
To run sfc /scannow in Windows 8 you will need to open the Elevated Command Prompt.  The easiest way to do this is to press the Windows key windowskey_zps092d5c75.png and the X key.   A menu will open with the option Command Prompt (Admin), click on this.
 
You will see a window similar to the one below.
 
command%20prompt%20w8_zpsxjmewau9.png
 
When the Elevated Command Prompt opens type in sfc /scannow (please note the space between sfc and /scannow), then press Enter.
 
If the scan finds no integrity  problems in the first portion of the scan it should stop, to be sure that the scan has stopped wait five minutes, then type in exit and press Enter to stop the scan.
 
If it does find integrity problems the scan will continue.  This will take a while, please have patience and allow it finish.  
 
When the scan is finished please post the log of this scan.
 
To find sfc /scannow log, reopen the Elevated Command Prompt using the Windows key windowskey_zps092d5c75.png and the X key method outlined in the instructions above. 
 
When the Elevated Command Prompt opens copy and paste the following in the Command Prompt, then press Enter.  
 
findstr /c:"[SR]" %windir%\logs\cbs\cbs.log >%userprofile%\Desktop\sfcdetails.txt
 
This will place a new icon on the desktop titled sfcdetails.  Click on this to open the log, copy it and paste it in your topic.

Evidently you can open and use the command prompt, so go back to Alex's suggestion in post #5 and do what she has suggested.  

 

Click on the Start orb rsz_1rsz_1rsz_start_orb_zpshjewtibd.png and then type cmd in the Search programs and files box.
 
In the pane above the search box Programs will appear with cmd below it, right click on cmd and choose Run as administrator.
 
When the command prompt is open copy and then paste the command below in the command prompt, then press Enter.
 
net stop winmgmt
 

Go back to the Start menu and click on Computer.  Click on the C: drive.  When it opens click on Windows, then System32, then right click on WBEM and rename this folder to oldrepository.
 
Reboot your computer.
 
Open the command prompt the same way I outlined previusly, copy and then paste the following command, the press Enter.
 
net stop winmgmt
 
Do the same with the command below.
 
winmgmt /resetRepository
 
Restart the computer and let us know if the problem persists.
