System restore not creating restore points

by arachnida1315 / December 13, 2010 11:03 AM PST

I haven't got any restore points listed I realized a few months ago, and when I try to create one myself I get the error message saying

"The restore point could not be created for the following reason:
The specific object was not found. (ox80042308)
Please try again"

and it lies, trying again does not work lol

When I check the even viewer it has errors from both VDS and VSS. VDS says "Unexpected failure. Error code: 490@01010004"
The VDS error has occurred twice today apparently.
The VSS error has occurred once today in the event log which states
"Volume Shadow Copy Service initialization error: the control dispatcher cannot be started [0x80070427, The service process could not connect to the service controller.
]. "

There is also another error that states
"The shadow copies of volume C: were aborted because of an IO failure on volume C:."
and it's "Event14 volsnap" which has occured 4 times apparently in the last hour.

I've been looking on google for ages and have tried nearly everything I've found. I saw someone with the same problem and theirs was fixed with just a disk check, but mine wasn't.

anyway, please help me. I don't like my computer not being able to create restore points, it worries me.
Thanks Happy

Thank you for the reply. I don't have norton but I do have a Nvidia graphics card, but I can't see any errors in the event log popping up with Nvidia relations in them. But thank you, I'll try that website and see what I can find.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
