System Restore Is Unable To Protect Your Computer Please Restart

Regards Tony B. If not it's because the file you are trying to run is not associated with a program. I'm ready to dump the hard drive! What were the Event Viewer results ? Source

Report Venk› brakers - Dec 22, 2008 12:13AM I had the same error.. I do to enable System Restore and it says do you want to enable I click yes, then when I try to go to it again it says the same thing. Unfortunately I didn't afterwards get to speak with the man that did the work, so I still don't know what actually caused the trouble. The problem is when hit by a virus unless you know what that virus is and what it does to your computer you can't be sure that you have repaired it

Then, I followed the recommendations in brakers message of Aug 19. Double click on the file and allow it to modify the registry, then reboot.

Either \WINDOWS\Inf\i386\ or \i386\ depending on your CD structure. I am not too sure where you are with this?? I had previously been able to access System Restore by right clicking on My Computer, then clicking on Properties, then on the System Restore tab presented as part of System Properties, Please restart your computer, and then run system restore again."> > I have restarted and tried again but it still doesn't work.> > Any suggestions?> > Thanks AnonymousJul 2, 2004, 2:47

Rest assured that I wasn't in any way offended. Only thing is I removed all my anti-spyware and ad-ware because they were getting so many errors-though they might be part of the problem.

Thank you for requesting callback, we will get back to you soon. I'm still dealing with finding files that aren't there in the folder or they are invisible.

We removed the drive and installed it in an identical hardware configuration, then booted SpinRite 6 from CD and did a Level 2 recovery (see above for recovery level definitions).

After that completed, I was able to restart the services. We used a level 2 setting in SpinRite: Recover Unreadable Data." There are many SpinRite reviews on the internet. Nothing happens.

Report Mike- Jan 10, 2009 07:16AM Hi Brakers, I have the same problem - booting results in bsod.

If you want to do this you will need you Windows XP disc, if you have installed SP3 you will need that slipstreamed onto Windows XP CD. Thanks for your help. 08-14-2009, 09:02 AM #6 Johnny Tremaine Registered User Join Date: Jul 2009 Posts: 454 OS: WinXP Good. Report houston89- Apr 3, 2010 06:51AM okay I was freaked out thought I had a really bad virus I couldnt acess internet couldnt use system restore or load any programs, pluged As I said in a previous listing I had two computers with this fault and both have now System Restore enabled.

I have run Spybot, HijackThis, stinger10000457, Norton Internet Security (which is also having issues since the Advanced Protection/SONAR can't access any servers to check in, update or work), etc. You say you can boot from CD but don't know where to go from there!!! When you boot from CD what comes up?? I tried to do it in safe mode, but it won't go to safe mode.

At the end of setup the installation hangs, because the Program (mbam.exe) starts and gets blocked by the trojan. In Normal Mode, check Event Viewer. Several functions may not work.
