    Can't create restore point/install some programs


    Hi, I have a problem with my laptop which affects several areas. The most direct example of the problem is when I open settings - search for "restore point" - and select "create restore point" I immediately get the dreaded "No such interface supported" error.

    Before you jump to any conclusions about this I first noticed a problem when trying to install a trial CAD program a couple of weeks ago. On opening the installation program everything progressed as expected with a window opening advising that the process was extracting files to a temporary folder. When the green progress indicator was almost finished the process stopped and I received the "No such interface supported" error for the program in %AppData%\Local\Temp\RarSFX0\PCAD2020.exe.

    After a bit of searching I discovered that it was likely a corrupted/unregistered DLL problem. I followed tutorials at TenForums and ran sfc /scannow which fixed some corrupted DLLs. I also ran it in safe mode which found some more corrupted files. I then ran the DISM tool \online\clean-image\RestoreHealth and it found no problems.

    However he problem persisted. I then ran Malaware bytes which found nothing. I then did a deep scan with Avast which also found nothing.

    I have been able to install other programs without any problem and everything else on the laptop seems fine. I have the latest version Win10 10.0.19042.630 (20H2) installed.

    I hesitate to reinstall win10 over my existing setup because the windows ISO file (when I run it) advises I will lose all current Apps and settings because I have a later window version.

    I am at a loss. It is obviously something in common with being unable to run the restore point command and running an EXE from the temp folder but I don't have a clue what that would be.

    Can anyone offer any possible cause for this problem?

    :)

    No restore points are created when updates are installed

    Hi,

    To address your concern let's run System restore on your computer.

    To check if there is restore point already created:


    • Press Windows key +
      X, select System.

    • In the left pane, click on
      System Protection
      .

    • Select the option to
      system restore
      > next. It will show all restore points already created.
    Note:

    • On installation of an update, if there is restore point already created in last 72hrs, it will not create a new restore point.
    • On installation of an application, if there is restore point already created in last 24hrs, it will not create a new restore point.

    Use System restore to make restore points when you install a new app, driver, or Windows update, and when you create a restore point manually. Restoring won’t affect your personal files, but it will remove apps, drivers, and updates installed after the restore
    point was made. To go back to a restore point:

    • Right-click (or press and hold) the Start button, and then select
      Control Panel.
    • Search Control Panel for Recovery.

    • Select Recovery > Open System Restore >
      Next
      .
    • Choose the restore point related to the problematic app, driver, or update, and then select
      Next > Finish.

    Thanks you.

    Can't create a Restore Point.

    When I try to create a restore point, the program starts but then stops with the error "Access Denied (0x80070005)". However, when I create a restore point as a different user (also an administrator), it works fine. Suggested solution?
