Cannot run System Restore without error 0xc0000022 in Win 7

    Question

  • Even after disabling antivirus software, still getting error code 0xc0000022 stating an unspecified error occurred during system restore operation.  Attempted this process several times.  Did not have any system restore issues with Win ME or XP, was hoping Win 7 would work better.

  • Hi Miller,

     

    Please access Clean Boot to check the issue. If the issue disappears in the Clean Boot environment, you can continue to narrow down which entry is causing the issue.

     

    If the issue persists, you can run System File Checker to troubleshoot this issue.

     

    Also, make sure the latest Windows updates are installed successfully.

     

    Hope this helps.

     

    Regards,

  • As usual, Microsoft tech support is absolutely useless.
    They can correctly identify the potential causes, but are absolutely useless when it comes to the actual fixing.

    Here are intelligent steps to fix the issue:

    Restart your computer, repeatedly pressing F8 as soon as your computer starts.
    You arrive at: Advanced Boot Options.
    To rule out your antivirus or security solution as being the culprit, start in "Safe Mode with command prompt".
    You arrive at: Command prompt.
    Type: rstrui.exe
    System Restore launches.
    Perform restore, if its successful it will say so before restarting, and once it's started.
    If it was not successful, it's not your security solution's fault.
    Now it makes sense to see if system files are hard drive sectors are damaged.
    From any command prompt type: sfc /scannow
    Let this complete, should say everything is good.
    Lets check for damaged sectors, type  from any command prompt: chkdsk c: /r
    Where c: in the example is the drive the windows files are on.
    If you recently installed updates, uninstall all those updates.
    In the search bar type: Windows Memory Diagnostic
    That should complete without errors.
    (not needed, but if you your whole system is F*****, download and run prime 95 for 2 hours)
    If you do this last, and it completes without errors, your CPU is reliable.
    Now get back into safemode with command prompt, and run system restore again.
    The problem should be solved.
    If it isn't I or another guru at Microsoft would require direct access to your system to fix the problem; in other words, you're scr*****.  You could always consult google.
    One thing is for sure, if you did all of the above, there is nothing wrong with your hardware.
    And Microsoft is to blame.
    Chances of the above working: 90%
