Greyed out



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. lolkewl_glasses

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
