  1. Laptop jammed AFTER succesful system restore point


    My laptop was slow and was refusing to access a number of internet sites I use regularly including my banking site! so I performed a system restore point, which I have done before on my old laptop but never the new one I am currently working on the old machine. The screen advised that the system restore had been succesful but this morning I can´t get anything. I can log on to, say, Word but can get no further - all that happens is that the circle whirs and nothing opens. Same with MSN and email. HELP - what can I try to resolve this?

    :)

    Restore System using restore point

    Hello,
    Had to use a recent restore point. Started the restore, made a list what will be affected, and it started. After waiting about 25 minutes I got an error notice that restore was not succesful because of anti virus (?). The only antivirus on my system is windows defender, tried to stop it in task manager by selecting "end task" and acess was denied.
    Finally had to use the macrium backup.
    So:
    1. Whats the use of restore points if cannot use them ?
    2. How to stop the defender so I can use the restore point ?
    Answers will be appreciated.
    Thanks

    How to delete inactive System Image Restore Points in System Restore

    Windows 10 64-bit.
    When I click "show more restore points" in System Restore I see a bunch of old "system image restore points" that were deleted in past and do not correspond to any currently active restore points. Clicking any of these old restore points, I simply get an error message saying they could not be found, and to select another restore point instead.I would like to delete these restore points listings but have been unable to do so.
    So far, I have tried steps mentioned below without any luck :

    Disk Cleanup through (CLaptop jammed AFTER succesful system restore point :) Properties
    Disable System Protection (OFF and ON) in System Protection for OS (CLaptop jammed AFTER succesful system restore point :)
    Disk Space Usage to minimum (slider button all the way to the left then 'Delete all restore points for this drive'),
    Delete all shown Restore points in CCleaner (the problem ones do not show here),
    Reset Windows Backup to Default in Windows 10 with 'Reset_Windows_Backup.bat' utility.

    Any suggestions highly welcome.

    Scheduling System Restore Point Creation


    I have tried to precisely follow the instructions set out in System Restore Point : Create at System Startup - Windows 7 Help Forums, but the Task Scheduler / script is failing to create a restore point:
    • Running the script manually creates a Restore Point.
    • Task Scheduler appears to run the script, but no Restore Point results.

    (The Last Run Result code 0x41301 indicates "The task is already running".)

    The Task Scheduler settings are as follows:

    I would be grateful for any suggestions as to why the restore points are not being created.
