Vista Home Premium. Unable to start System Restore. Error 0x81000202


  • I am having a problem with two error messages:

    First: Error 0x81000202 (I cannot use System Restore)

    Second: Error 0x80070422

    Another problem that I have tried desparately for the past 9 hours is a message that keeps popping up:

    Host Process for Windows Services stopped working and was closed. With this particular problem, John D. Support Engineer guided me through a "clean boot" and into discovery of which program running was causing the problem, but I still haven't found the problem. The message still appears on my taskbar.

    All my programs seem to be working fine (except System Restore)... but that Host Process message is annoying and I think it has something to do with the error messages that are appearing.

    If only I could get my System Restore back up and running, I would restore it to an earlier date (before all of this happened) Can anyone help me get that Restore feature back?  I would appreciate any help anyone can offer.

    Btw, I am running Windows Vista Home Premium 32bit OS.

    Thank you
