I was not expecting this, I'm already having issues and just found I can't even make a restore point. So I'm hoping there are repairs I can make, or at least run some tools to find out what the problem is. I got a screen shot of the error message while trying to make one.

Does this error message happen when you open the System properties dialog box or when you click System Restore button.
Also which partition does the System restore points setup to store at.
Press 7W6b39o.png  keys and type rstrui.exe into opened Run dialog box and click OK button to open System Restore tool.

When I open the item for the system information, it's fine and off to the left of that screen you'll see there's four administrative tools, that's being partially covered. When I click on the one for "System Protection", the error comes up.

I'm actually not sure where it stores it at, but I think recently, while freeing up some space, the folder that had all the old restore points was emptied.

I tried the short cut and I didn't get an error until it opened the System Protection tool, the same error message.

The partition where all system restore points are stored and can be changed from System Properties where you have post the screenshot of it. Under Protection Settings, click the disk, and then click Configure.

 

Click Start, click All Programs, click Accessories, right-click Command Prompt, and then click Run as administrator.  Type the following command, and then press ENTER:

sfc /scannow  
  

Sfc command will repair any damage Windows system files. If everything is okay you should, after the scan, see the following message "Windows resource protection did not find any integrity violations"

 

Run the batch script i have created as a administrator to restore Windows services to there default startup settings. Batch script can be downloaded from below link.

 

 

Set Windows Services To Default Startup

I'm stuck at the part with Protection Settings showing a disk. Right under where it says "Available Drives", it hangs with a queue that says "Searching..." and doesn't change. Left clicking anywhere under that box doesn't do anything.

Open the Command Prompt as a administrator and type below command and press Enter key.

vssadmin Resize ShadowStorage /For=C: /On=C: /MaxSize=20%

After executing the above command the output of this command should say Successfully resized the shadow copy storage association any other output please write it down at your next post.

 

Now see if you can start the System Restore tool.

Okay.

I got stuck for a second, but got it. It failed though.

I'm looking at the event viewer for the application and it's showing a few errors.
