System Restore not working at any of the restore points RRS feed

  • Question

  • I tried to do a system restore from all my different restore points and I keep getting the same message. My computer goes through the whole process. When it restarts, I put my password in. When the desktop comes up, there is a warning saying that the restore did not complete successfully and that none of my files were changed. I have tried using various other restore points, all with the same result.

  • Hi,

    Do you have Norton Product Protection installed? If so, disable it.

    In case this issue is caused due to conflict with other third party software, I suggest prepare clean boot to troubleshoot:

    Clean Boot prevents software conflicts by preventing the startup items and non Microsoft services from loading. This way you can safely follow the process of elimination to check which application is causing this behavior.

    Note: Ensure that you put your computer back to normal startup mode after completing the troubleshooting steps. Steps are available in the article given above.
