System Restore Error 0x81000203 (Below solution at end of this mesage did not work)


  • I am in dire need of support. I upgraded from Windows Vista 32 home premium bit to Windows 7 Ultimate32  bit and I am experiencing problems with System Restore, Internet Explorer while running Microsoft Fix It and slowness in my system.


    In regards to the System restore when I bring up the program I receive the error, “There was an unexpected error in the property page: System Restore encountered an error. Please try to run System restore again. (0x81000203). Each and every time I run the program I receive this error. I can attest to the fact that at one point all was working well. I do not know what caused this error.


    Secondly, when I run Internet Explorer Performance or Internet Explorer Safety from Microsoft Fix It I receiver the message, “ A error occurred while trouble shooting: An unexpected error  occurred, the trouble shooter wizard cannot continue”.


    I tried the below and I still have the problem.

    1. Open gpedit.msc from Start Search box.
    2. Navigate to the following branch.

    Computer Configuration\Administrative Template\System\System Restore.

    3. In the right pane, please configure the “Turn off system restore” policy. Please set it to Not Configured
