    System restore not working


    The problem is that I can make system restore points but they disappear from the wizard and system volume information>systemrestore folder almost immediately. I know this has been covered in many places over the years but none of those approaches works for me.


    I have tried virus and malware scans, sfc, turning system restore on and off with rebooting, restarting volume shadow copy, checking the allocated disk space, safe mode and I cannot remember the rest. I have it in task scheduler which starts but does not complete the process.


    Any ideas?

    :)

    In post 26 there were steps listed to fix the operating system corruption.
    Are you able to follow them?
    In post 29 was the suggested dism repair command.
