When i go to (System Properties) It does not show my drives, It says (Searching...) under 'Available Drives' but never finds a drive to let me restore. The option to create a restore point is greyed out so i can't click it
*Update* I restarted my computer and went to (System Properties) and it allowed me to click Create System Restore. But it has not created the restore point yet. It is still in the process. I will leave it going and report back when it achieves the restore point or fails.

Nope the Restore point, and the Volume of a Shadow Copy, Were the only problems i can think of or have had problems with..
The Restore Point looks like it is doing the same as it used to, (Not Going To Work)
You did get my hopes up though,
I was just about to say i love you....

Subject to no further problems
I will remove my tools now and give some recommendations, but, I would like you to run for 24 hours or so and come back if you have any problems
Now the best part of the day ----- Your log now appears clean
A good workman always cleans up after himself so..The following will implement some cleanup procedures as well as reset System Restore points:
Download and run Delfix
Select the options as shown
: Keep Java Updated :
WARNING: Java is the #1 exploited program at this time. The Department of Homeland Security recommends that computer users disable Java
See this article
I would recommend that you completely uninstall Java unless you need it to run an important software.
In that instance I would recommend that you disable Java in your browsers until you need it for that software and then enable it. (See How to diasble Java in your web browser and How to unplug Java from the browser)
If you do need to keep Java then download JavaRa
Run the programme and select Remove Java Runtime. Uninstall all versions of Java present
Once done then run it again and select Update Java runtime > Download and install Latest version
Now that you are clean, to help protect your computer in the future I recommend that you get the following free programmes:
Update and run weekly to keep your system clean
Click on the link above to be taken to Unchecky.com
click the very large Download button.
Click Open folder
Right click on the Unchecky_setup and choose to Run as Administrator
Once open click the Install button.
Then click on Finish
Unchecky is now installed and will help you keep unwanted check boxes unchecked, this is a fire and forget programme
It is critical to have both a firewall and anti virus to protect your system and to keep them updated.
To learn more about how to protect yourself while on the internet read this little guide Best security practices Keep safe

"The restore point could not be created for the following reason:
The creation of a shadow copy has timed out. Try this operation again (0x81000101)
Please try again"
I will now try Macrium reflect imaging tool.

I can not get Macrium reflect imaging tool to install onto my computer. I have tried downloading to desktop and also downloading to documents both hang up.
Delfix Also hangs up and will not create system restore so that will not work either. Should i just remove all the tools you mentioned manually?

Have you thought about the upgrade to windows 10
Posted 20 August 2015 - 07:23 AM
Ok i will try the Delfix again without the purge system restore. (Delfix created a logfile that says completed)
To tell you the truth i haven't put much thought into windows 10. I have heard alot of unhappy people with windows 10. Do you have windows 10? If so can you give me the advantages or pros & cons of it?

Also classic shell still works so it can mimic windows 7 with the start menu etc...
It does take about an hour or so to install
Posted 20 August 2015 - 03:23 PM
Hmmm, My mom has 8.1 and to tell you the truth i was going to switch to it. But after playing with it for 2-3 days i decided windows 8 was not for me. To complicated... I like my windows 7 Its simple to me... Is there a way i could try windows 10 before installing on my computer some how like they did with windows 8? like a trial deal?
Posted 21 August 2015 - 05:52 AM
You can install it and with in 30 days have the option to revert to 7
But to get the most out of it then the first programme to install would be classic shell http://www.classicshell.net/
This will change the format into windows 7
This is my windows 10 (I use start 8 but the presentation is the same as classic shell )

Thank you Essexboy
I will try it out, Question: The part that says:
- If you are installing the operating system for the first time, you will need your Windows product key (xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx-xxxxx). For more information about product keys and when they are required, visit the FAQ page.
- For Enterprise editions please visit the Volume Licensing Service Center.
Is that talking about my windows 7 Product key? Reason i ask is because in the past someone has asked me to look up my product key and it a (Enterprise Edition) so my product key would not work again.
Long story short, I got my windows in a bundle deal with a family member so my product key is invalid..
Just did not want to lose this copy of 7 if i didn't have to..

I will have a look at that
