    system restore did not complete successfully. your computer's system files and settings were not changed. "system restore could not access a file"


    there is already a thread with this problem dating back to win 7, but it is locked.


    i'm using the most recent update to win 10 pro, no antivirus program, and windows defender.


    this isn't a technical support request; it's an organizational question: why does this problem continue to exist ? seriously, someone should lose their job over this, but according to dilbert, i'm guessing the managerial staff at Microsoft ...

    You might want to try:
    1. Click on Start button (1). Hold down SHIFT KEY+Click On Power (2) then click on Restart(3)

    I have somewhat the same problem, except that my AV is Windows Defender.
    I have a program that will not run and their support system suggested a restore point. However, when I tried to use an existing restore point, after it finished, I received an error message stating that System restore did not complete because an AV program was probably running. I turned off Windows Defender and tried another System restore, only to receive the same error message. Any suggestions?

    Well, this looks interesting. Another way to get to a restore point. I will try this, but fear that I will get the same result: "System Restore did not restore successfully."

    Thanks.
