# System Restore Problems

• ### Question

•

I tried to manually create a restore point, but got the following message:

The shadow copy provider had an unexpected error while trying to process the specified operation. (0x8004230f)

Any ideas?

Thanks.

• Thanks, but I figured out my problem. It was easy--I forgot to restart the computer. After I did that, I was able to do it. (I tried another response from other sources before I posted here.)
But, I'll keep this in mind!
Thanks,

Hi,

Please check for the existence of the following files at the %windir%\system32 directory:

Srrstr.dll

Srclient.dll

Srcore.dll

Rstrui.exe

After that, try steps below to re-register core files:

1.   You will only be able to re-register the file srcore.dll.

2.   Launch an elevated command prompt

3.   From the command prompt type the following command:

Regsvr32 srcore.dll

4.  Insert the Windows Vista disk and type the following command:

sfc /scannow

Hope it helps.
