Well, hopefully someone here will have the solution? Sure hope so.
My System Restore just started acting up a week ago.
1. System Restore creates named restore points fine, however, when I go to a restore point to roll system back, it goes through the motions
of initializing, restoring, rebooting, then at desktop I get a message that System Restore was unable to restore with Error code 0x8000ffff.
I have researched this code as well as reading hundreds of threads to no avail.
I have made sure Volume Shadow Copy is running, Wow is running. I have made registry corrections pursuant to some MS threads, I had done
a Chkdsk /R and it came back fine. I have tried in safe-mode to no avail, I have disconnected all of my attached USB hardware, excluding my wireless
mouse, to no avail. Today, just for the sake of it, I removed my Windows Updates back to Nov. 1, 11 and that didn't help.
I've also done a system startup repair with the Win 7 disk to no avail.
ANY tricks left to help me out.
Hardware wise, nothing has changed.
Thanks in advance,
