List of current issues
System Restore Point error code and it is not working
Steps taken, but have been unsuccessful?
sfc/scannow

turn off Kaspersky free

Microsoft Software Shadow Copy Provider and Volume Shadow Copy services, and both are running with startup type set default manual
I don't know what happened but for some reason System Restore Point is not working on my PC. I tried sfc/scannow, and its said nothing needs to repair. I also checked Microsoft Software Shadow Copy Provider and Volume Shadow Copy services, and both are running with startup type set default manual. I also turned off Kaspersky protection as well. So far, no solution yet. I only used O&O Shutup10 to turned off Windows Automatic Updates.

In my experience, system restore is only good for a very short time period, if your going to make a minor to medium change to things it may serve you well but using it as a long term recovery solution is a mistake, make a backup with a sturdy backup soft to be confident. I use system restore for immediate recovery only.

I used to think this same way. Over the last couple of years, however, I have been having more success with SR for some reason.

This is a strange problem OP is having. When I see corruption like this, I hope System Restore will work, too, but after that I usually reimage the system. I don't know why, but Windows seems to me to just go bonkers sometimes for reasons I can't explain fully or at least in the majority of the craziest episodes. These are the ones where things won't open or shortcuts are emptied of their functionality or like this one.

I wonder if the repair installation (non-destructive) is available for Windows 10 like with Windows 7. That option has worked for me several times with Windows 7. Here is a YouTube video:


You MUST be able to boot into Windows for this to work...

What I can say about SR is that if I make a restore point before I install something and determine that I am dissatisfied with the outcome and immediately use the restore point, 99% of the time I am able to eliminate the issue but you have to use it as a change and then immediately unchange what you altered, it's not really a backup solution, more of a try and decide option ?

Seriously? you use System Restore as a rollback mechanism?!!! LOL , the tool is full crap, it is the first thing i disable after a clean install.



itwt

If it is free, I will take it.

Did you used Kavremover to remove Kaspersky?

I don't know what causes System Restore Point error, but good thing is I have an external backup drive that is able to restore the PC back to the stage that the System Restore works again. I can confirmed Kaspersky Free doesn't interfered with the System Restore Point. I still don't know what causes this error.

and as pointed by @Azure Phoenix , KavRemover and/or Kaspersky are at the origine of this problem.

No offense but that topic has 10 pages, a direct answer to the problem would be more useful.
Specially since I have a laptop with the same problem (only noticed it 10 min. ago when I was messing with system settings).

It works perfectly as he took the time to investigate and see what values Kaspersky Removal Tool actually changed.

I don't remember if I did run the Kaspersky Removal Tool that causes my restore point to be hiccup, but I will mark that link for future references.

Anyway, I managed to restore my PC from the working stage and now the problem is solved.
