SYSTEM RESTORE ERROR AND DIRECTORY NAME INVALID RRS feed

  • Question

  • Im using a windows vista (entertainment PC) of HP and now suddenly i've started encountering an error with it.
    Whenever i open any file or change settings (running as administrator only), it shows an error saying "directory name invalid". It seems to me that im not getting access to the administrator account, though im only d administrator.....

    Now when i tried system restore, it initializes and goes through all da processes bt finally shows an error:

    ***************************************************************************************
    System Restore did not complete successfully. You computer's system files and setting were not changed.

    Details:
    System Restore failed due to an unspecified error.
    Unspecified error (0x80004005)
    ***************************************************************************************

    The same error shows, whatevah restore point I use....Im going mad! someone plzz help...

    PS: Im not being able to restore my system using a administrator account...when i enter any password it says "The administrator account has been disabled" (though i dont know da password).
