Windows system restore point problem RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    I am trying to run the Windows Product Key Update Tool, but when I get to the screen that tells me it is ready to start updating, I click Next, and get this message.

    "The application was unable to create a Windows system restore point. This feature may have been intentionally disabled. Do you want to continue with the update operation? Continuing will result in a system restore point not being created and is not recommended."

    So naturally I've clicked No about 5 times and tried again and again, disabling my firewall did not help. What can I do about this?

  • Yes, enable System Restore and you should be OK now.

  • Go to Start > Run and type: MSCONFIG , and hit enter. Under the General tab, place a dot next to "Normal Startup - load all device drivers and services", click Apply and reboot. Then try again.

  • Right-click on My Computer and select Properties, System Restore (tab) and see if System Restore is shown monitoring your hard drive.
