New laptop with Windows 10 Home, purchased 6 days ago.
Set it up which took several days to get it to my liking, System Restore points made manually with no problem.
After doing all the Windows 10 updates, I disabled Windows Updates in Settings by changing the logon to Guest and set it on Disabled.
I checked the setting the next day and it had switched itself from Disabled to one of the other settings (don't recall which).
So I clicked on Start, planning to then click Stop and see if that would prevent it from switching away from Disabled again.
I got an error message, that Windows couldn't start it due to incorrect logon name or something like that - which is what I wanted to happen if Windows tries to override my setting (although once it managed to override and install anyway).
So I thought I was probably ok in preventing Windows Updates without my doing it manually.
I mention all of that because I assume it's the cause of my problem (why it would have caused the following problem I don't know, but I never had the following happen before and I used the above disabling previously on my last computer with no problems, although I had never previously clicked Start after I had set it to the Guest login):
Shortly after the above I tried doing a System Restore point and got the following message:
"The restore point could not be created for the following reason:
The writer experienced a non-transient error.
If the backup process is retried, the error is likely to reoccur.
Please try again."
Thus far, I have:
1) Retried multiple times.
2) Tried to do a System Restore. Got the same error message.
3) Turned off System Restore, wiped out old restore points. Then tried multiple times again to create a Restore Point.
Shutting down, then restarting after trying each of those. All to no avail.
Dskchk saw no problems.
"Windows Resource Protection found corrupt files but was unable to fix some of them.
Details are included in the CBS.Log windir\Logs\CBS\CBS.log.
For sexample C:\Windows\Logs\CBS\CBS.log
Note that logging is currently not supported in offline servicing scenarios".
My computer knowledge ends here - no idea how to repair this.
Hoping you can help.
