IE Slow & setting restore point.

Q: IE Slow & setting restore point.

Hi all. I installed windows seven in Feburary and besides PC being not quite as 'fresh' and IE being very slow the PC doesnt seem to have any irregular behaviour.
I however, havent set a system restore point yet so I thought it might be a good idea to get you lot(Guru's) to have a quick peak under the hood before I do so. Appreciate any help given.
Regards Adam.

Preferred Solution: IE Slow & setting restore point.

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

A: IE Slow & setting restore point.

Please, observe following rules:

Read all of my instructions very carefully. Your mistakes during cleaning process may have very serious consequences, like unbootable computer.
If you're stuck, or you're not sure about certain step, always ask before doing anything else.
Please refrain from running any tools, fixes or applying any changes to your computer other than those I suggest.
Never run more than one scan at a time.
Keep updating me regarding your computer behavior, good, or bad.
The cleaning process, once started, has to be completed. Even if your computer appears to act better, it may still be infected. Once the computer is totally clean, I'll certainly let you know.
If you leave the topic without explanation in the middle of a cleaning process, you may not be eligible to receive any more help in malware removal forum.
I close my topics if you have not replied in 5 days. If you need more time, simply let me know. If I closed your topic and you need it to be reopened, simply PM me.

======================================

Restore points should be getting created automatically unless you disabled system restore which is not the best idea.

A:Fix for System Restore error (0x800700B7) for Setting Manual Restore Point

Hi,
 
Thanks for posting in Microsoft TechNet Forum.
 
Based on my experience, error code 0x800700B7 indicates that the object cannot be created because an object with the same name already exists. Thus I suspect there is some shadow restore points stored on your computer. I recommend that you perform the following steps.
1. Change another location to save the new created restore point.
2. Resize Maximum Shadow Copy Storage Space by running the following command, there may be caused by limited space.
 
1) Click Start, click All Programs, click Accessories, and then right-click Command Prompt.
2) Click Run as administrator.
3) At the command prompt, type the following command, and then press ENTER:
 
vssadmin list shadowstorage /for=c:
 
4) Note the Maximum Shadow Copy Storage Space value.
5) At the command prompt, type the following command, and then press ENTER:
 
vssadmin resize shadowstorage /for=c: /on=c: /maxsize=300Mb
 
6) Close the Command Prompt window.
 
Hope this helps. Thanks.

Hi All!
Apologies if I've chosen the wrong location for this post!
-
I just Installed a Solid State Drive replacing/cloning my previous Primary Disk Drive.
Apparently the Restore Point setup "window" still thinks the old Disk Drive is there, but "(Missing)".
Screen grab attached.
"Configure" shows zero current usage, but when I tried to turn it off I was warned that all restore points will be deleted and new Restore Points won't be created.
Perhaps that only means Restore Points won't be created (only) for the "(Missing)" drive and I'm worried about nothing. I want to be safe rather than sorry.
FWIW: The original Drive is still installed but renamed to a new name & letter.

Any thoughts or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks

I followed the instruction to manually create a Manual Restore Point and that works fine. Then I decided to set up the task in the Task Scheduler to automatically create a restore point once daily. For some reason the task is started as it should but it never completes and I have to manually terminate it. I have included in the attached ZIP file, 5 screen shots of the tabs of the task, 4 screen shots of the history tab starting and running and then 4 screen shots of the history tab when I terminated it an hour and 25 minutes later. I don't think a restore point takes over 85 minutes to complete so I wonder what I have set incorrectly??? The VBS file is C:\Program Files\Scheduled_Instant_Restore_Point.vbs and was downloaded from the W7 forum.

My Lenovo T60 crashed and was not able to be repaired. I do not know what caused my laptop to crash, but according to the PC Tech, the hard drive was reformatted. To be honest, I am here in the Philippines and did not bring my recovery disks with me & I am not so sure about the technical ability of the PC Tech.

That being said, he installed Windows XP Professional on my laptop and partitioned my hard drive. I have a 250 GB Western Digital HD. Before my laptop crashed, the drive was NOT partitioned. After the installation, I now have two drives, C, with 40 GB and D, with about 200 GB.

I lost a lot of photos and music, and other important documents. I decided to try to recover some of these files and used Recuva. The good news is that a lot of missing documents can be recovered. While listing the files and looking at them, I noticed that I had several System Restore points that I can recover.

My question is, can I use the most recent System Restore point that I recover and use that to reinstall all the missing software? I had MS Office 2007 Professional, MS Visio 2007, MS Project 2007, and other software that I do not have the installation disks with me.

From what I have read, System Restore will reinstall the system (registry, files, and software only) and not the My Documents folder.

If this can work, where do I put the system restore file? If need be, I can delete the new partition and resize the C partition, restore, and then repartition the hard drive afterwards.

A:Can I use a recovered System Restore point file to restore missing sw crashed laptop?

Since you already lost everything, try the System restore but first backup everything Recuva found onto a USB key. If your version Windows was not the same what the tech installed, it might not work. Also, he should have first ask you what to do with your files before formatting.
Otherwise you will have to wait till you can re-install everything.

My questions are on Windows 7 System Restore, Restore Points and Backups; specifically, potentially using a Backup as a Permanent Restore Point.

Here is the situation...

About a month ago, I did a complete Factory Restore on my HP desktop and returned it to it's factory condition. After removing the bloatware and performing all the necessary Windows Updates, the Factory Restore process went off without any issues.

Today, however, I needed to use System Restore due to an issue I was having with multiple monitors that I just couldn't figure out. So, I went into System Restore and found a "Date andTime" of a restore point that was right around the same time I did the Factory Restore. That Restore Point was also the oldest and since I knew it was a known & good restore point, I decided to use it. That restore point "Description" was labeled "System Image Restore Point" and the "Type" was labeled "Backup." (See Image)

FYI, I hate having all those options, as I'd rather use native Windows tools.

3. Is there a way to set it up to show at least the last 10 restore pointsd created, or is there a smaller limit.
Right now the one and only restore point that is available is the last one. So it is like a revolving door every time a new restore point gets created, the previous one gets dropped and does not show any longer.

A:System Restore- Created Duplicate Restore Point Files

Wait what is your asking? System Restore creates restore points, which are hidden in a folder called "System Volume Information" on the root of your system drive. These restore points are actually folders inside System Volume Information, each folder contains versions of system files and data of changes to your system (such as software and hardware installs). If a problem occurs you can revert to a restore point.

If you are worried you have two restores are almost identical you can clear all the restore points leaving the most recent by going to Start (Orb on Vista)->All Programs->Accessories->System Tools->Disk Cleanup.

Vista - On Vista, dialog will open click "Files from all users on this computer", then on following dialog click "OK".
XP - On XP, click "OK" on the dialog that appears.

Now it will start scanning for files that can be cleaned up. When it's done scanning a new window will appear and on the top of that window there will be some tabs, click the tab labeled "More Options". Look for the section that talks about System Restore and click the Clean Up button. Then Click "OK" on the main window. This clears all the restore points except for the most recent and should resolve your duplicate restore point problem.

I do not recommend that you ever delete files or folders in the System Volume Information, as if you need that file and your system crashes you are pretty much screwed.

In the Windows & Task Scheduler, I have the default SR set up to run daily at 12:00am and on system startup. The Last Run Result is always "The operation completed successfully. (0x0)" and the History shows "Task completed" for each scheduled restore. However when I go into System Restore and view the restore points, none of the scheduled ones are listed. All the ones listed are Manual (which I can do through Windows Button -> Create a restore point ->Create), Critical Update (post Windows Update) and Install (post software installation).

I've increased the Disk Space Usage parameter to make sure there's plenty of space. I've also tried entering the command manually in cmd.exe:

"%windir%\system32\rundll32.exe /d srrstr.dll,ExecuteScheduledSPPCreation"

It appears to run (no error message), but it still doesn't produce any restore point and when I check in Task Manager I never actually see the rundll32.exe process run with that Command Line.

Running XPHome, and trying to fix my Security Center (disabled in Services and can't be enabled) . . . there doesn't appear to be a way to fix that problem so System Restore came to mind. I can invoke SR OK, pick an earlier point (there are several back through March 29), and click "Next" to get to a "Confirm Restore Point Selection" screen. Once there, I can click next dozens of times, or once and wait . . . and nothing happens.

Trying to restore from Safe Mode is even less productive. On startup, when selecting "no" to enter System Restore, I get a message saying that System Restore cannot be used, and that I should reboot and try again. That hasn't worked (I've tried).

The System Restore Service is running, so something else is preventing SR from advancing. What are my options here? (Or, while we're at it, what can I do about my disabled Security Center Service?)

Thanks for any ideas -

Putting it simple No you would end up overwriting the 32 bit so it would not even be there.

Hello everyone,

I need guidance regarding how to do system restore to a restore point 6 months or even older.

Os i have: xp sp3

Around about 2 weeks back i upgraded my system to sp3 for that i created system restore point.

But the problem is when i go to do system restore it doesn't show me the restoration point about 2 weeks old in the list rather it only shows and allows to new restore points created within 5-6 days and that does not include that restore point which i created b4 sp3 installation.

So.Is there a way to do system restore to a restore point 6 months or even older? does window allows it or any third party software which helps me retain older restore points?

Note-i tried doing it via safe mode also but didn't helped, also the space alloted for system restore is maxed out.

Thanks in advance

A:System Restore(How to restore to 6 months or more restoration point)

System Restore was never designed to reverse the major changes made by a a service pack update. For that reason all prior restore points will be deleted.

System Restore works best when used as soon as possible after a problem develops. On the few occasions I have used the feature it has always been with the most recent restore point. The further back you go the more likely the restore will fail or cause more problems than it solves. Going back 6 months is almost certain to fail. System Restore was never designed for that.

Why do you need to go back that far? There is almost certain to be a better way.

Hi

Ok I borke world recored for formating windows 7 , the last 2 months .
The problem is ;
Windows System restore keep freezing , I'm not trying to do system restore , but when I try to install/remove a software , windows try to create restore point , making the installation/removing prograss freeze , till the process fail , takes about an hour to. Installation/removing will continues after.

This windows is 6 days old , issue keep getting back after each format , sometimes after 2 weeks, sometimes after few days , once happened after installing graphic driver ( was first and only thing installed ) .

Sometimes it works fine after reboot , then refuse to work hour later .

I turned system protection off , the installing/removing works fine.
I tried tracking the issue , but it happens randomly .
Is this another windows 7 bug ?

What could trigger this issue ?
I did full scan , Kasper Sky , Avast ,and Nod32 , system is clean.
Removed Anti viruse .
Reinstalled , repaired windows through upgrade , issue still exist , not fixed.
System restore works fine in safe mode.

Any help , would be appreciated.
Thanks.

A:Windows 7 system restore point. Can't create / restore .

I solved this issue. Might someone els find this thread helpful.

Since it worked in safe mode and not in normal mode , there must be something perventing it from this.
in MSconfig , I unchecked all startup , and all services , except Microsoft services , System point was working fine then, I enabled few services and startup till I found the software causing this issue , it was graphic tweaking tool that comes with graphic card driver (Zotac fire storm ) I unistalled it , but it wasn't enough , I had to remove the startup entry manualy , now system working perfectly .

I hope this methode helps people that suffering from smiliar issue .
Note : If it fail to create restore point in safe mode , probably system file is damaged , and the above might not work.

My computer (XP Home) is in a real mess, and I want to go back to better days with System Restore, ideally several weeks before various nightmares happened. But when I look for an earlier restore point there's only today's date. Is it possible for me to create a date for, say, a month ago?

A:How to restore windows vista to an earlier restore point

You can't. Whatever restore points are available is all there is. In the future I strongly suggest you consider using Disk Imaging Software.

Disk Imaging software takes a "snapshot" of your drive as it exists at the time you create the image. You can then restore the entire image or any file(s) or folder(s) you choose. It is a virtually foolproof way of backing up your system and providing a safe haven in the event of a catastrophe that requires you to blow away your system partition and restore it to a previous state. It also allows you to "test" various software and be confident that you have a the ability to return to the prior state any time you choose.
I use Acronis True Image. It is the best of breed, but it isn't free. The best free alternative is Macrium Reflect.

1) I create an image of my system partition once a week to a second hard drive and keep the 2 or 3 most recent images. I also image my other partitions about once a month. I always enable "verify image" in the options. It takes a little longer, but insures a valid image.
2) I also create an image before performing any drive level function (ie, changing the size of a partition) or making any significant change to the OS (installing a service pack, upgrading IE, etc). Also sometimes before installing new software.
3) Images may be created on any medium (cd, dvd, external drive, etc). For obvious reasons they should not be stored on the same drive you are imaging. The be... Read more

I want to restore my system to yesterday but the only restore point shown is 6-month old system image restore point. Are there any hidden restore points? And, how can I access them?

A:System Restore only shows an Image Restore Point

Generally system restore will show all the available restore points.
This kind of thing can usually be explained away by the use of a system optimizing or cleaner type program wiping system restore points as they are created. Generally you should have one for every windows update you've applied at the very least.
If they are not there system restore has been disabled on your system. Or something, or someone has been removing them.

twice I've run system restore, and it always says failed. System restore started,goes threw loading registry and then reboots, after desktop loads the failed dialog box comes up.
I've read previous posts, and checked services running and made sure System Restore is on with available space.
At one time I'd run a program called Smart V 2.0 from the Windows Club. It had disabled a lot of services to speedup boot time. I've since reinstalled default settings for the services. Could that have maybe screwed up the restore points?
My computer had froze, and that is when I tried the restore. Computer is running OK now, but would really feel better if I knew System Restore would work. Thanks for your time.

System restore would have selected the most recent restore point. Restore points are created automatically every day, and just before significant system events, such as the installation of a program or device driver.

 Hi .... When I try and manually create a restore point in Vista I get the following error message:


 
Could not create the scheduled task for the following reason:
Cannot create a file when that file already exists (0X800700B7)
 
Coincidently this problem started when the last automatic restore point was created on Oct 26, 2008. Since then no other automatic restore points have been created and I can't create one manually either. Its almost as if the restore point creation process is stuck in constant write mode and won't create a new one automatically or manually.
 
This error message occurs whether VSSCOPY service is running or not. I have all the required system restore files or dlls in system 32. I have also eliminated any possibility of it being caused by another program since the automatic restore point creation process worked fine up until Oct 26, 2008. 
 
The following is the current content of my ONLY system restore registry key:

Hi Ray, to troubleshoot the issue, I suggest we first perform the following steps:
 
Use the System File Checker tool (SFC.exe)
=================
1.       Open an elevated command prompt. To do this, click Start, click All Programs, click Accessories, right-click Command Prompt, and then click Run as administrator. If you are prompted for an administrator password or for a confirmation, type the password, or click Allow.
2.       Type the following command, and then press ENTER:
sfc /scannow
The sfc /scannow command scans all protected system files and replaces incorrect versions with correct Microsoft versions.
To determine which files could not be repaired by the System File Checker tool, follow these steps:
1.       Open an elevated command prompt.
2.       Type the following command, and then press ENTER:
findstr /C:"[SR] Cannot repair member file" %windir%\logs\cbs\cbs.log >sfcdetails.txt
Note The Sfcdetails.txt file contains details from every time that the System File Checker tool has been run on the computer. The file includes information about files that were not repaired by the System File Checker tool. Verify the date and time entries to determine the problem files that were found the last time that you ran the System File Checker tool.
3.       Type the following command, and then press ENTER:

Hi all,

So, this question sort of ties into this whole issue, but here's the basics. Currently my C drive, which has my Windows 7 install, can't/won't boot, but I have space on another partition (on another drive) where I could do a fresh Windows 7 install. If I were to do that, could I then somehow use System Restore from the new boot partition to tap into a Restore Point on the old one to put my PC back to the way it was before it got all screwed up? Or is that just wishful thinking on my part?

Hi after reading through various online guides about setting up a 2nd router as an access point i have a few questions. First things first i did attempt this before and it worked but after the wireless on my original router began to go out until it eventually broke. i don't know if the this is connected with setting up an access point. I realize now i did not set the routers on a different channel and the SSIDs were different. I have a new router from AT&T and i want to try again to set up an access point. my question is what should the settings in the 2nd router page be. Does the name of it and password need to be the same? And also is it possible that setting up this access point will break my original router?

I have a slightly confusing set up on my home network and can't figure out how to set up a wireless access point. Here is my setup:

I have an Apple airport extreme N set up in the main house. We also have a converted garage in the back yard that is barely within the range of the main router. I have an ethernet cable running from the router in the main house to the back house. I then have that plugged into a switch, which then feeds ethernet to several components. The wireless signal in the back house is very weak, which can be frustrating, so I wanted to set up a separate wireless network in the back. I have an Apple airport express that I am currently using to stream music to a home theater in the back house and would love to use that as a wireless access point. It is hooked up to the switch. I also have a Netgear N router that I could possible use as an access point as well. The problem that I am having is with IP address assignment. I would guess that this is because the main router assigns IP addresses and then the switch also assigns IP addresses. Any suggestions or help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
 

A:Setting up a wireless access point

To use a wireless router as a WAP ...

JohnWill's procedure (Aug. 30, 2008) for configuring a secondary router as a switch and, optionally, wireless access point follows.

Connecting two (or more) SOHO broadband routers together.

Note: The "primary" router can be an actual router, a software gateway like Microsoft Internet Connection Sharing, or a server connection that has the capability to supply more than one IP address using DHCP server capability. No changes are made to the primary "router" configuration.

Configure the IP address of the secondary router(s) to be in the same subnet as the primary router, but out of the range of the DHCP server in the primary router. For instance DHCP server addresses 192.168.0.2 through 192.168.0.100, I'd assign the secondary router 192.168.0.254 as it's IP address, 192.168.0.253 for another router, etc.

Note: Do this first, as you will have to reboot the computer to connect to the router again for the remaining changes.

Disable the DHCP server in the secondary router.

Setup the wireless section just the way you would if it was the primary router, channels, encryption, etc.

Connect from the primary router's LAN port to one of the LAN ports on the secondary router. If there is no uplink port and neither of the routers have auto-sensing ports, use a cross-over cable. [You will not need a cross-over cable if one of the "routers" is a computer.] Leave the WAN port unconnected!
