What I need is to find out what is needed to repair the system restore. Then I can mimic those steps and add it to the repair program :wink:

I also have problem with System Restore - "The selected recovery point was damaged or removed during the restoration" event id 8206.
I have win 7 64-bit.

I have tried many things from tips from other sites, all the basic tips like sfc /scannow and look for virus and bad sector and so on.
Tried "Reset Registry Permissions", "Reset File Permissions", "Register System Files" "Volume Shadow Copy Service "and "Repair WMI" in Windows repair.
Tried  System Update Readiness Tool for win 7 x64, no errors with services.
I have tried to disable and enable system restore with 10% and I have lots of space left.

I "CAN" make a System Restore Point.
I've typed "vssadmin list writers" in windows command line (cmd) and the result for all are:
State: [1] Stable Last error: No error.

My System restore worked some time ago and I used System restore, but after that something has happened.

I have comodo backup, but I have had that a long time ago, so don't know if that has something to do with this.
 
Tried to use system restore in Recovery console but it doesnt work. Also Tried in safe mode.

I think that if I make a reinstall of windows 7 it will work, but I won't do that now anyway, my computer works fine except this.
People how have had the same problem that I have read about on forums, the most of them have reinstalled win7 so that doesnt help me much. And that have helped them.

But what does a reinstall do to System Restore? That would be nice to know so maybee Shane could use the information to make a "Repair System Restore".

I know what "Reimage" has a "Repair System Restore" option but it cost to much just to try it for this problem.
http://www.reimage.com/what-it-fix/

Maybee something is changed in the registry for me.
I have tried to change permissions in the registry: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\services\VSS
and HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\services\VSS\Diag
Also tried to delete:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\COM3 all with no luck.

I have read about this for weeks but havent found a solution yet.

Are tips for windows 2008 working on windows 7?
Becaus I have seen tips like this, How to Re-register Volume Shadow Copy Service (VSS) Components on

Windows 2008: http://www.techbind.org/post/2010/11/10/How-to-Re-register-Volume-Shadow-Copy-Service-(VSS)-Components-on-Windows-2008.aspx

I have tried to re-register all the dll related to VSS

cd /d %windir%\system32
Net stop vss
Net stop swprv
regsvr32 ole32.dll
regsvr32 oleaut32.dll
regsvr32 vss_ps.dll
vssvc /register
regsvr32 /i swprv.dll
regsvr32 /i eventcls.dll
regsvr32 es.dll
regsvr32 stdprov.dll
regsvr32 vssui.dll
regsvr32 msxml.dll
regsvr32 msxml3.dll
regsvr32 msxml4.dll

I get these errors:
Error "swprv.dll", loaded but DLLRegisterServer failed 0x80070715
Error "eventclc.dll", loaded but DLLRegisterServer failed 0x80070715
Error  "es.dll", loaded but entry point DLLRegisterServer can not be found - "please check that "es.dll" is a DLL file or OCX valid and retry"
"vssui.dll" load failure - "chek that the binary file is saved at the described access path and then debug for further issues of files .dll binary or independant - specific file is untraceable"
"msxml.dll" load failure - "chek that the binary file is saved at the described access path and then debug for further issues of files .dll binary or independant - specific file is untraceable"
"msxml4.dll" load failure - "chek that the binary file is saved at the described access path and then debug for further issues of files .dll binary or independant - specific file is untraceable"

Would nice to compare some places in the registry with someone who has a working system restore.

What antivirus are you running?  Some antivirus programs have been known to cause havoc with restore points, particularly Norton.  :rolleyes:  Also, are you able to restore to a newly created restore point?

You have done the SFC, reset permissions and everything else.

You can make restore points but can not restore them back.

The errors you get are
Error "swprv.dll", loaded but DLLRegisterServer failed 0x80070715
Error "eventclc.dll", loaded but DLLRegisterServer failed 0x80070715

Which both are normally related to permissions in the registry. But that should have been fixed.

I have had others ask for help getting restore to work again. MS gives no info on what files are needed by the system restore. So I havent been able to make a repair for it yet.

For most people a repair install of 7 does the trick, and they still have all their programs.
http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials/3413-repair-install.html

Personally I would rather find a fix for it :-)

On the sfc/scannow did it say it found errors but was unable to fix them?

I have MSE 2.1.1116.0 (Microsoft Security Essentials)

Quote

No, I have tried that many times!

Quote

With scannow do you mean "Cannot repair member file"? because that I never have had!
Error I have in scannow are:
 "Error CBS Failed to shred identity: Microsoft-Windows-InternetExplorer-LanguagePack [HRESULT = 0x80070057 - E_INVALIDARG]"

Earlier I have used registry cleaners, but I have stopped using them.
I wonder if that has something to do with it?

I can use "System Image" and have restored windows 7 thru that a time ago.

I have noticed that I have a new account in user profiles, maybe since 2 months ago.
It has this id: •SID: S-1-5-32-551.
I have search on this and got this info:  Name: Backup Operators Description: A built-in group. By default, the group has no members. Backup Operators can back up and restore all files on a computer, regardless of the permissions that protect those files. Backup Operators also can log on to the computer and shut it down.
Can this have something to do with this?

I also have this error related to VSS: Volume Shadow Copy Service initialization error: the control dispatcher cannot be started [0x80070427].
I have searched on it, but my services related to vss are all working.
Theese services I try to start and stop to see if they work:
Volume Shadow Copy is set to manual (tried to start it and it works)
COM+ Event System is se to automatic (it works)
COM+ System Application is set to manual (it works)
Microsoft Software Shadow Copy Provider is set to manual (it works)
Remote Procedure Call (RPC) is set to automatic (it works)
DCOM Server Process Launcher is set to automatic (it works)

Exactly!  :wink:

I see that there is a difference but I don't know what it means.

Here is the comparsion to shanes registry!

Thanks!

Makes me nervous to have you import these keys yet. So lets do this.

Export your 2 reg keys and post them. I will load up vmware and put a test install of Win 7 64 bit on it. I will load my reg keys and reboot and if it doesn't blue screen I will add yours. If neither blue screen I will then test system restore with your keys and see if restore stops working :-)

It seems that there are more registry keys related to System Restore.

This is my key in the registry:

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\SystemRestore]
"DisableSR"=dword:00000000
"CreateFirstRunRp"=dword:00000001


And I dont have this in my registry:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\SPP\Clients

or this:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Windows NT\SystemRestore

Could this be something?

Looks like you can import those reg files safely.

Loaded up a test install of win 7 64 bit applied your reg files rebooted and all was fine. System restore save and restored fine. So I dont think it is the reg keys. But feel free to try it. :wink:
