I had my Windows Login fail after an error saying "Login failed unable to recover data" (or something similar I did forget exactly what it said) so I ran a system restore and it did fix it for now. I got this error when I logged in.

How can I prevent this from happening or do I still have potential problems? One thing I did not do is I did not delete my browing history for months
on end. Could that have had something to do with it. I also have a lot of icons on my desktop. YouTube also lags from time to time but other video sites seem to work.

 

I am using a Toshiba Satillite L755D-S5204

I'd suggest disabling your anti-virus then run system restore for the same date again, see if that resolves the error message.

That should enable your anti-virus again as part of the restore process.

It works now after the failed restore. I just would like some advice on how I can prevent this from happening again.

That's what my suggestion was supposed to do. The main part being to disable your AV first.

The failed restore still fixed my login. My question was about what caused my login to do that and how I can prevent that from happening again.

Okay, no idea though. User accounts and files get corrupted sometimes. Often if a computer if force powered off by pressing and holding the power button so power drops without a clean shutdown being done, this will happen but sometimes you can do a normal shutdown and the next time you boot this  happens.
