Using Windows 7 Professional, as soon at I try to start a system restore, I receive error message "Incorrect function. (0x80070001)" and "Catastrophic failure (0x80000FFFF)." How can I avoid this and perform my system restore?

    Question

  • Windows Explorer has stopped responding for the most part and I found http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2694911 list of solutions. After working through all of the first options on the list, I tried a system restore three different points but got the same two errors: "Incorrect function. (0x80070001)" and "Catastrophic failure (0x80000FFFF)."

  • Hi TAS,

    Regarding the error message, I recommend you try to this :

    If your issue persists, let me known.

  • I have tried to restore my windows 7 pro 64bit system 4 or 5 times now, with different points selected and followed the work around instructions in your reference (run as administrator) and get the same result, the 0x8000fff error and the last time also received this error note: The procedure entry point objc_exception_try_enter could not be located in the dynamic link library objc.dll.

    What do I do now?

    Thank you for your help.
