Hello i've recently changed the time of system restore task execution from 12am to 12pm, not only because i use the most but also because i was seeing less restore points created. I've changed the maximum space used from 10 gb to 90 gb but there is only 2 restore points, you can see from the screenshots the last execution date was yesterday but in the restore point list figure 25/12 there should be more than 2 restore points as the task is executed not only on startup but also daily on 12 pm.

A:System Restore Bug or Malfunction?

Happy New Year
I am going to give you help that you would not expect; forget about system restore. Download the free Macrium Reflect. Then once a week or so, make an image to be placed on an external drive. Whatever the problem, virus, malfunction etc, just put back the image. It saved me 3 times, when restore was useless; especially with a virus.

The XP Home System Restore has not and will not work since I installed the XP Home OEM ~2 years ago. I found an article at this site but did not write the file it told me to look for in msconfig. I looked for it there originally, after reading the article but could not find it in msconfig? What files have to be "turned on" in msconfig to have "System Restore" work? All settings that I have looked at (hard drive etc.) say that system restore is "on" and working but it will not let me create a restore point, and does not recognize any past "restore points" because they have not been created? Is there a "fix"? Let me know. If there is supposed to be a file in msconfig on the start tab, what is it and how do I get it there. Thanks. P.M.

run services.msc and check to see if the System Restore service is present and set to automatic startup and is started. Make sure you have adequate Hard drive space available for it.

Hi recently I tried doing a system restore on windows 8 and after going through the process of waiting, I received a message upon reboot namely this "System Restore did not complete successfully, Your computer's files and settings were not changed.
Details;
System Restore could not access a file. This is probably because an anti-virus program is running on the computer . Temporally disable your antivirus program and retry System Restore.
An unspecified error occurred during System Restore, (0x80070005)"
anyway I panicked and went to undo the last change made(if one was in fact made) via system restore , but the same thing happened I repeated this procedure a few times trying to restore to the same point and then undoing the operation (I have Obsessive Compulsive Disorder) to which it just kept giving the same error message after going through a short process and rebooting each time.
I was wondering could any of this possibly of corrupted my files, deleted files, or wrecked anything in any way, my computer my programs, anything.
As far as I can remember the restore process said something about restoring registry each time, which only took a short time.
I need to know from proffesionals like you guys and gals if I have done anything wrong and if so how to irraverse it.

Vista Home Basic ACER laptop. Worked fine until I uninstalled AOL Spyware Protection, at which time I could not obtain Internet access, and all programs opened slowly only after a few minutes delay. For example, when I clicked Start, it would take a few minute before the menu popped up. Then when selecting Programs, accessories, and on to system restore, each of these steps had a delay of a at least 3 minutes before reacting.

My thought was to return the computer to when it was working fine.

So I attempted system restore, selected a date, and received the below message.

Error 0x800423F3 : The writer experienced a transient error. If the backup process is retried, the error may not reoccur.

After this attempt, no dates for system restore remained so I tried to manually create a restore point. After a couple of minutes of this step, I received the same error message.

Also when trying to use the Start feature, it will freeze and then I receive the message Windows Explorer is not responding and is trying to fix the problem, with no different result.

I tried system restore in safe mode, but it does not offer creating a manual restore option and restore point dates were not listed.

I tried the following steps without success:

1) Start the computer and press f8 on boot up and select 'Safe Mode without networking'.

Check the event viewer and post any error messages you are getting there. Also what OS do you have (and service pack number)?

If its doing it when inserting a floppy you may have something as simple as a loose connection. Open up your case and make sure everything is properly seated.

I recently purchased an HP ProBook 450 G3. I am using two passport compact 1 TB drives with my laptop's two USB 3.0 ports. In normal use there is no problem. However, when I copy a lot of data from one to the other (or from one to the laptop's internal drive) the drives keep disconnecting. I know this because first I will get a copying error saying either the source or the destination is missing. Then I will hear the "chime" that Windows makes when a USB device connects or disconnects. Then the autoplay window for the Passport drive will appear. It seems that it spontaneously disconnects and then reconnects. I can continue using it for a time afterward, but it always spontaneously disconnects at some point, always when I am doing large data transfers.

I wondered if I have a poor physical connection---the USB plugs seem a bit loose. I checked if there is any vibration or movement that could break the connection, but so far there is no evidence that anything is moving. The disconnection always happens when a lot of data is being transferred, while the drives are sitting completely still.

Any ideas how to debug this?

A:Hard drive malfunction? USB port malfunction? Or just normal?

This is a hard situation to diagnose from a distance IMO. "Loose" is somewhat subjective, and barring serious abuse the only kinds of usb connectors & ports I've ever seen fail mechanically are mini and micro USB2 types.

I'd be inclined to suspect the drives first, especially if they are from the same family and were produced around the same time (the "bad batch" phenomenon). Have you tried to reproduce the problem on other machines, or with different drives on your machine?

Recently my system just began erratic behaviour with constantly changing its date from current calendar date to 2002. There was this suggestion to change tyhe CMOS battery. That has been done but the date change is still persistent.

One interesting thing is that when you type regedit in the run box, it displays the sounds and audio devices properties dialog box. If you try running symantec antivirus client, it displays the same dialog box. Sometimes when you doubleclick to open my computer icon, the sounds and audio devices properties dialog box will open. If you shut down the system and set the date back to current date through setup, as soon as the system is powered back, the date changes back to 2002 with the sounds and audio devices properties dialog box poping up.

Could this be a virus or malware problem?
Attached are the DDS.txt, Attach.txt and gmer.txt files.

Hi,

A few days ago, I started getting 1-2 minute long system hangs where basically, my screen would freeze and sound will either playback in extremely slow motion, start stuttering, or just no sound at all. The system is completely unresponsive during this time but it usually recovers after a minute or two. I am running Windows 7 64bit.

I'm reasonably confident that I have pinpointed what is causing this to occur; Flash Player or something associated with it. I realized that only when I'm running something that uses Flash Player do I get these system hangs. When I play Youtube videos, my system will hang randomly and when I was running an application that uses Flash, my system would also hang. Playing a 1080p video file in WMP for an hour straight does not result in these system hangs at all, so I don't believe it is a video/sound card problem.

I've tried reinstalling my sound and video drivers, as well as reinstalling Flash Player but unfortunately, this has not solved the issue. I did not recently install anything onto my system. Any help would be appreciated! Thanks.

A:Flash Player causing system malfunction

Explain hang, does it just freezes and does nothing until you manually power off the machine or does it give you blue screen of death with error codes etc
http://www.techsupportforum.com/foru...ta-452654.html

When you reinstalled the drivers, did you uninstalled the old drivers first and freshly installed the new drivers or just install over?

also can you provide more information about your computer? make and model
if custom build then list the specs of your motherboard, RAM, CPU etc

if you are unsure about them you can download speccy to give you that info

It's weird because this week I saw different blue screen errors. Perfmon shows nothing but a service failed when I get it to work the few times I just lose USB/Touchpad function and the system doesn't lock up.

This is my second reinstall and I've also tried new RAM and a new SSD and nothing fixed the errors. I've tried different USB ports, different mice, and all that stuff to no avail.

I am having a new system sent to me in the next week or two but this problem really irks me so I figured I'd post up my stuff for someone to look at and maybe see what the deal is because I'm baffled.

My computer is approximately 4 years old. I have never had a problem until now. I was trying to clean up my laptop from old and malicious files. I downloaded AVG Free 8.0 and Spyware Doctor. I was planning to download several other spyware, malware, and diagnostic software but realized that I could not update any of these programs. This was the case whether or not I used a wireless or direct ethernet connection. I am hypothesizing there might be some kind of trojan which is making it impossible for me to update, although I have never heard of this before. I decided that I would do a system restore to a point when I knew the cpu was working fine. This did not work. My computer will not let me do a system restore. It has dates set aside but when I hit NEXT to proceed with the restore nothing happens. Now, I feel that my only option is to reinstall my OS but I do not believe I have the disks anymore.

Since then, the My Computer page fails to load. A flash light icon appears and keeps searching for drivers and folders forever. The drivers themselves are accessible through the command prompt or through the Run interface.

After this problem occurred, I tried to shut-down the system but it hung on Saving Your Settings. I did force shutdown through the power button. After re-starting the system, the problem persists. My Computer view is stuck in the scan phase. Also, I am unable to use my USB internet data card.

DEP processing is flaky. Setting /noexecute=OptOut and adding HP digital monitor to the exceptions list does not cause DEP enable for all processes.

?? setting /noexecute=AlwaysOn works, all processes DEP'd, BUT disallows HP digital monitor (can print, cannot scan or retrieve printer info).

Hello everyone, first time poster, so sorry if I mess up ^^

Anyways, I just got a new laptop, specifically a Lenovo 80XS0086IX Ideapad 320-15ABR. Initially it all seemed fine, but as I used it I noticed several problems: 1) it cannot remain in sleep mode for long. After a while, it just switches off abruptly. I have tried several combinations of lid closed/open, power cord in/out, but eventually the result is always the same. 2) When powering it on after these shutdowns, the trackpad does not recognize multiple-fingers gestures, requiring a restart. 3) The disk usage frequently goes up to 100% despite no ongoing activity. 4) Sometimes, pressing the power button to power it on results in the disk starting, then abruptly stopping, then restarting again several times, before the laptop finally starts. 5) The system sometimes freezes for several seconds, even the cursor stops, only to resume any input movement later.

I have tried everything in my knowledge: I updated the BIOS, the HDD firmware, installed all Windows updates, fresh-installed Windows, but nothing seems to work (although the HDD thing apparently solved the "always 100%" problem). I ran both Windows in-built check-disk and third party programs to check for errors on the HDD, but none showed up. I'd be really glad if it was something I can fix at home, since I really need this machine to study, so sending it to be repaired/replaced back at Amazon is my very last option due to time. Hope you guys can h... Read more

DEAR ALL

While installing usb modem of tata i am getting a msg USB MALFUNCTIONED.

PLEASE RECTIFY

A:Usb Malfunction

Hi sunsandy4u and welcome to TSF,

Have you looked in the Task Manager to see if you have any Yellow marks by the usb hubs on the tree in the left pane? If so, that would indicate a driver problem.

My modem is usb and required a download into it for it to function properly. The software came with the modem. Also, try another usb port if you have one on your computer.

Hope this might help,

I have a current issue with my laptop that I would like some assistance on. When I go to play a computer game (such as DOTA 2), the CPU fan malfunctions a few minutes into playing the game and then intermittently switches off then on until I shut the computer off for a while. Is there any way to fix this issue? I have already updated my bios and it did not help.

A:CPU Fan Malfunction

Hi jdendrin,

First and foremost, please post your computer specs. Posting computer specs definitely helps us troubleshoot computer issues more efficiently. What is the brand/model of your laptop? Do you have warranty on your laptop? It's possible that the fan inside your laptop is dying.

Hello all,

Well, to get right into it, my PSU conked out. I shut down my computer (Start > Turn Off Computer . . .), it didn't automatically turn off like it normally does. So, I tried the power switch, nothing happened. Finally, I flipped the switch on the PSU. Obviously, it was off now.
The next day, I went to turn it on, and it didn't. I tested the power switch, it was fine, so the next thing to check was the PSU. Took it to a computer service store, they tested it, it was dead. I sent it back to the company, they sent me a brand new one. And that brings us to today.

I installed the PSU in my computer, hooked it up to everything (mb, harddrive, video card, CD-Rom, fans). I pushed the power button, the PSU lit up (it has a lighted fan on it) and the fan went on, this lasted about a second, then it shut off. Well, then I went through step-by-step:
- Connected only the motherboard to the PSU - turned on, stayed on, beeped.
- Connected the motherboard and the larger fan - turned on, stayed on, beeped.
- Connected the motherboard, larger fan, and the harddrive - turned on, stayed on, beeped.
- Connected the motherboard, larger fan, hard drive, and video card - turned on, stayed on, did not beep. (apparently it was beeping because there was no video output.
- Connected the motherboard, larger fan, hard drive, video card, and plugged everything into the back of the computer - turned on, stayed on.
- Connected everything listed above, plus the smaller fan, turned an... Read more

A:PSU Malfunction

Although there are things like power surges and lightning strikes that could kill a PSU, there is really no reason to try to come up with a scenario for what happened. Often they just die and it can be without warning. I think you are saying that now everything works. If the new PSU suddenly quits then you may have a problem that needs to be figured out.

The fan set up looks pretty standard.

Today I downloaded the latest version of Internet Explorer and shortly thereafter I received a message "USB Malfunction...Device not recognized" I was not sure what "device" the message was referring to.

After that, I noticed my LINKSYS Wireless Icon was missing not allowing me to log on to the internet. There are two other PC's on our wireless network which are working fine.

How do I fix this and get my LINKSYS Wireless Icon back???

Thanks,

I have a Toshiba Satellite laptop with XP Home Edition on it. All of my drives and devices connect externally and I access them through 3 different USB ports. A week ago I began having problems with my USB ports.

When I turn on my laptop, the devices (a mouse, keyboard and printer) initially are recognized and run well. Then I hear the noise from the comp as if I unplugged a device and my mouse, keyboard and printer are all no longer recognized by the comp. Sometimes I hear the noise as if I plugged them back in, sometimes I don't hear that noise but get an error message saying that my devices are not working properly and need to be replaced. All of my devices are in reality functioning properly. There does not seem to be consistency in when the USB ports stop functioning. During this time I am not touching the connections and at times am not even actively using the comp.

Do I have a trojan virus? or are my USB ports beginning to simply malfunction?
Any suggestions would be really appreciated. I can't do much with a laptop that cannot save a file to a disk or print a file. I have ad ware and spy ware removal tools (ad aware, spybot search and destroy, spyguard) as well as an updated firewall and antivirus (zone alarm suite) running on the comp. No major risks or problems have been found by these programs.
Thanks!

A:USB Malfunction

Try this: Go to start, control panel, system, click the hardware tab, and click device manager, click the plus next to Universal Serial Bus controllers, and right click and click uninstall on any USB root hubs. Then restart your computer and windows should detect your usb and reinstall the drivers.

I have a Atapi 6x/32x dvd-rom. Recently, when attempting to insert and install any type of software...dvd or cd it causes my computer to crash and I need to reboot. Sometimes, at that point a warning appears during the reboot process indicating...fatal exception OE: page fault and lists too many numbers to repeat. Could this be hardware or software problems? I have a 2 year old micron 450MHz Intel II that required a hard drive replacement last year (13.0 GB Ultra ATA66 Hard Drive) after emmiting the "sound of Death" Any one have any clues? Thank you
Lisa.

I have a laptop with a F1 key Malfunction, when Windows XP loads and my desktop appears it then loads help and support continuously, finally locking up the system.
My question is how can i stop F1 from running help, is there some windows service that i can turn off permanently? So that the F1 key means nothing? Replacing the keyboard is not an option for me at this time!

Thanks

You can disable the Help and Support service from the Services management console (Start > Run > services.msc), or from a cmd prompt: sc stop helpsvc, then sc config helpsvc start= disabled.

Are you using a laptop ? Maybe the touch pad is too sensitive. You can adjust that in the Control panel I think.
