The "repair" option is often the best, and easiest. I understand what was being suggested about rebuilding the repository, which does solve some issues, I think a system repair is the quickest. I've gotten lazy in my old age and tend to opt for the quickest repairs these days.

Being without a PC is like having no legs, it also brings on Panic Attacks.

Don't you just love how hanging around all these smart people rub off on the rest of us?

this is one suggestions that did not work and i got many even more complicated ones

Reset the Repository.
Boot into Safe Mode without networking and open a command prompt as administrator.
Now Type net stop winmgmt and hit Enter. This will stop the Windows Management Instrumentation Service
Next go to C:\Windows\System32\wbem and rename therepository folder to repository old
Restart.
Now again open a command prompt as administrator, type net stop winmgmt and hit Enter.
Next Type winmgmt /resetRepository and hit Enter.
Restart.Now see if you can create a System Restore Point manually. Hope some of this
helps you.

There were ones about registry entries and creating new D words

now how many users would even know where and how to do such a thing, the best and safest way is to do a repair and install from the disc IMOwaveysmiley
