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 :-)
Thats smart thinking! :smiley:

Here´s my keys!

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:

I don't think it is a reg problem. It is odd that you can make restore points but cant restore them.

I wonder if it is actually making the restore points in the first place?

Whats the size of your System Volume Information folder?

Thats where the restore points are stored.

My size in System Volume Information folder is 25,9 GB.

I can use earlier version of a file in explorer, så I think my computer can make a restore points.

25 GB. Thats a lot of used space. I personally keep restore off lol

So you make a new restore point and go to try and restore that new one and it fails. Have you cleared out all the old restore points first yet? I know on MS site they say that if your having trouble with the system restore you need to remove all the old points. (Not sure why though)

Yes I have tried that 2 times.

I've tried quite a lot of things

Do you think com+ can have anything to do with this?

I dont see why it would. At this point it is looking like a repair install is the way to go. If MS just listed the files system restore needs we could make sure they are all registered!

Maybe I do that later, it's not a big deal now anyway. Just a little annoying that there isn't an easier solution!

Get the feeling that Microsoft engineers on Microsoft forums do not want to tell the solution on this subject.

Ok

Thanks a lot anyway!

Merry Christmas!
