Hi, whenever , i update or uninstall, the application and microsoft creates system restore points, and i had no failure messages there, it is always with done. But when i try to restore, to a previous point, via SR, it fails with error, not restored to the previous date. i could see the restore points, and if i select another point also the failure . I am having windows 7 ultimate
The Bottom line is "Check your hardware first if it supports the task you try".

An antivirus program can be the cause of that but I've had restore points fail in Safe Mode where it isn't even loaded.

A workaround is to boot up into the advanced boot options - select Repair your computer and select the restore point option in the Recovery Environment (RE).
