Sstem Restore won't stop RRS feed

  • Question

  • I do not have the option to try any fixes on this or any other forum, as restore has been initializing for hours even after I shut down my laptop.  Help please as I am not able to use my laptop at all.

    Thanks

  • Hi,

     

    Do you mean that every time you boot up your system, Windows 7 will automatically continue the system restore process?

     

    If so, firstly, please let us know how you began the system restore. What steps did you do?

     

    Meanwhile, please try the following steps:

     

    1. Please try if you can boot into Safe Mode. If you can, please refer to Turn System Restore on or off to turn off system restore and see how it works.

    2. Boot from your Windows 7 installation media, click Repair your computer and perform a Startup Repair and see how it works.

     


    However, if you do not have Windows 7 installation media and your Windows 7 is pre-installed, it is recommended to contact your OEM for help.

     

    Hope this helps.

  • Please shut down your computer and try to reboot your system in safe mode.

    To go to the safe mode keep tapping F8 key as soon as you restart your computer. Then create a restore point.

    Please let me know the result of above suggestions.

  • I am having the same problem--I tried System Restore, and my laptop with Win 7 has been "restoring" for hours.  I've tried shutting it off and tapping the F8 key, to no avail.  System Restore is stuck, and I can't get out of it.
