Have had this problem for years.system restore very rarely works.Try Comodo Time Machine,much easier to use.Have not needed it yet so don't know if it works.They make a good firewall so it might be ok.

At BitsduJour they say Acronis Home 2011 and Plus Pack will be "coming soon" (no definite date) at a 63% discount (instead of $80 -> $30, if I remember the numbers mentioned).

You can check it out HERE . Doc also recommends it highly.

If you have Norton you have to disable it. Inside Norton turn off "Norton Product Tamper Protection" in "Miscellaneous Settings". Right click the icon in the system tray and click disable. Now try SR.

If you don't have Norton sorry for waisting your time.

I feel for you. The last two times this happened to me I had a badly infected computer and ended up reinstalling my OS.

Good luck.

Do what yrag says (for the next time), I use Acronis and have restored dozens of times, all successful.

Acronis True Image is excellent.2011 version got full integration with Win7.I'm using it since 2010 ver and "it saved my ass" several times.

Acronis works flawlessly. No need to install any other crap or bother with that useless system restore...

I have Acronis 2010 but instead of backups, I clone drives. Problem is, I haven't in a while. I know, I'm a dummy.

Actually, I uninstalled a card reader driver in hopes of getting the sdhc driver installed, but the install failed and I was trying to get the original back. System restore seems borked.

 

No malware that I can dectect. I run a pretty tight ship.    

 

Thanks guys. I'll have to deal with this later as my family is gathering for Christmas today......full agenda.

BTW, ran scf /scannow to no avail. All it did was disable LogonStudio...lol.

When you use Acronis and clone or image the drive you can use that to get back to exactly what you had correct? OS, everything. Couple of questions, please. Say it's a bad HD and you have the image or clone on an external. You get a new HD, put it in the box. How do you put the image/clone on the new HD? Are you running off the external? Do you have configure the computer to boot off the external before hand, when you set up the external and Acronis, before anything bad happened I mean. Reason I ask is that it seems that if the HD goes bad you have no computer to get the clone/image. Just askin'.

Acronis boots from the CD, so you can restore an image to a blank disk.

Um, however, you should get yourself more than one internal HD... They are cheap! My main is a SSD, the other three drives are for storage and all have images on. One of the drives has daily backups stored, the others have backups before I change something.
