I've been trying to use Windows 10's System Restore to revert my computer to a restore point I made 4 days ago, but it's been giving me the following error:
System Restore failed while restoring the directory from the restore point. Source: AppxStaging Destination: %ProgramFiles%\WindowsApps An unspecified error occurred during System Restore. (0x80070091)
After looking it up online, it seems like this isn't unheard of, and is a problem related to the hidden WindowsApps folder that could be caused by, among other things, antivirus programs. Yesterday, I reinstalled Malwarebytes 3.0 to fix a bug and as a result got a new trial for Malwarebytes Premium, which includes a self protection module. I uninstalled MBAM, ran the MBAM-clean tool to remove the remnants, and tried to use System Restore again, but no luck.
In the past few days prior to my restore point, I also had installed VideoPad and Windows Live Essentials 2012. I've removed them too just in case they were messing things up, but System Restore still doesn't seem to work. I tried using System Restore in the recovery environment, and nope, still getting the same error.
The disk and system files are in good shape, so I'm not exactly sure of what's going on here. Maybe Malwarebytes left something behind? In any case, I think I've exhausted all the approachable solutions that I could find, so I'd appreciate any guidance or advice that you guys might have for how I should proceed. Thanks!
