    Getting many Windows Module Installer entries in System Restore Points


    Hi. I've found a lot of Windows Module Installer entries when I check my SR points, sometimes on a daily basis. If no SR points were created a System Checkpoint will be created after 7 days after a previous SR point which is normal. If I Scan for affected programs nothing is shown (unless I installed or uninstalled a program prior to these restore points) Does anyone know what these Module Installer Updates are for or what's supposed to be updated?.
    I deleted all SR points and rebooted then created a restore point manually 2 days ago and so far no Windows Module Installer entries.
    Thanks, Mark

    :)

    System Restore is on But No Restore Points

    Merely enabling the System Restore feature won't create a restore point. In older version of Windows, there was a scheduled task that periodically did a restore point.... but the schedule isn't configurable in Windows 10

    So, Restore Points are created when:

    • You manually create them
    • You do an install or uninstall of a software package
    • You get an update from Microsoft
    • Periodically... but you can't choose when

    Here is an example of my Restore Points (notice that "Show more restore points" is checked):

    System restore point automatic create not working....need help.


    Were you seeing CAPI2 errors with Macrium & System Restore.

    And after enabling system protection.
    1) Does System Protection automatically create and populate checkpoints to list.
    Does System Protection create restore points when called by a program and populate checkpoints to list.

    2) I'd like to confirm whether my issue is unique to me or common.
    My issue is that I can manually create restore points okay and those manual created will populate to my list.
    Automatic restore points do not populate to my list. Albeit, Task Scheduler shows Last Run time change.
    Automatic restore points do not populate to my list e.g., with Windows Updates.
    When create restore point is called by a program. I see activity that suggest restore point is being created ...but, again the activity does not translate to an entry in my list.

    Cannot Create System Restore Point Because Cannot Turn On System Protection

    In Control Panel/System/System Properties/System Protection, "Available Drives," all that is listed is "Searching..." No drives are located, so no System Restore point can be established.

    How to fix?

    I have an extensive active thread in another area of the community dealing with the failure of this PC to install the latest Windows 10 update. Prior to executing the next suggested step to fix that problem I need to create a System Restore point, so a
    solution to this issue must be found before I can move forward on the major problem.

    YES, I have ALREADY run the SFC Command as Administrator and the report was that everything was A-OK.
