Used it today for the first time and got a message that it did not restore the date I chose because possibly I have an anti-virus program. I disabled the virus program and tried again and still get that message. It also says that I should troubleshoot my entire system to find the reason why. In XP OS, I don't recall ever getting notified before choosing a date that to make sure my Firewall and/or anti-virus programs are disabled. Does one have to go through all this if and when one decides that they have to do system restore in Win 7?
Win 7 system restore sucks(7 posts)
What happens if you take a system restore point then immediately try to restore it?
What antivirus and firewall are you using?
I have not had any trouble on many machines, so it must be something specific to your configuration.
Windows 7 System Restore doesn't suck at all. You probably have problems that are severe enough to prevent a restore. Try opening a command prompt as an administrator and run:
Then try to restore your system.
Well, the problem that existed and compelled me to try system restore has been resolved, without the benefit of doing a system restore just to prove a point..but I will keep your suggestion in mind, if and when I have to resort to system restore again. Thanks
