After installing some updates and and a new tuneup 2014 utility.
I found that my protection page and my sytem restore greyed out and inaccessible,after much advice on editing the registry and tooing and throwing on many complicated remedies which a beginner would find baffling.with no success at all. i started upon using the installation disc which gives a choice of repair files after waiting about half an hour for it to do its stuff until it finally started with system protection and system restore fully functional again though a couple of programmes had to be reinstalled all is calm and sane in my household. once again.Until the next time. lol
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:WindowsSystem32wbem and rename therepository folder to repository old
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
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 IMO
I appreciate your account. It reminds me of KF from a few years back, when we were doing more computer help.
Are you using Windows 8?
Don't you just love how hanging around all these smart people rub off on the rest of us?
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.
