When I installed my Windows 10 (Free Version) several months ago, I noticed that the old familiar System Restore was missing.  After doing some research I found out how to "activate" system restore. I pit it on my desktop for easy access.  Today (3-20-17) I found and put on my desktop How to create a Restore Point manually. When I opened it a few minutes ago, I discovered that somehow, System Restore was now turned off, and 0 space allocated.  I turned it back on and allocated space.  My question is What would cause it to turn off and go back to 0 space?  And is there a way to stop it from happening again?  My net provider is Frontier Secure, and they have a top notch virus and security check.  My thought is some virus slipped by and is hiding in System Restore, and I don't know how to check for that.  Has anybody else had problems with System Restore shutting itself off?

It appears that every time a major update like the Anniversary update is installed it resets Sysytem Restore to off.

I think it's because the NVidia graphics cards not having up to date drivers installed. You can update the drivers for nvidia graphics.
