System Restore Disabled and Won't Turn On - Error (0x8000FFFF) RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am running Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit on a Dell XPS 15.

    I found System Restore has become disabled through nothing I have done. When trying to turn on I get:

    "There was an unexpected error in the property page.

    Catastrophic failure (0x8000FFFF)

    Please close property page and try again."

    When I try again  I get the same error.

    I have had this before but can't recall how it fixed itself.

    I use Glary Utilities to clean up and this also allows a restore point tobe created and that works. Not sure if they are separate restore points to Windows ones.
