Hello,
i have posted here before trying to fix some sound issues , since have gotten my sound to work but in the process i turned off windows host services , my network indicator and my system re-store . the program i was using is WiseFixer , i would like to create a re-store point now that everything is working but it will not allow me to ... any help would be great..
Thanks
Mark

Is your system restore option disabled?

Need to know the actual error?

thanks for the quick response , when i try to create a re-store point i get this :

The restore point could not be created for the following reason

An error was detected in the Volume Shadows Copy Service (VSS) The problem occurred while trying to contact VSS writers .
Please verify that the Event Systems Service and the VSS service are running and check for associated errors in the event logs (0x80042318)

Check if volume shadow copy service is set to automatic in services


Go to start and type command prompt

Right click and select Run as administrator

Now enter this commands

net stop winmgmt
cd %windir%\system32\wbem
ren repository repository.old
net start winmgmt

Reboot and try creating restore point

:( now its :

The restore point could not be created for the following reason :

the volume shadow copy provider is not registered in the system
(0x80042304)

Click Start->type in services.msc

n the following list of services search for the below services and make sure that both the services are started and set to automatic.

Volume Shadow copy

If that doesnt work run these commands in the command prompt(run as administrator)


cd /d %windir%\system32
Net stop vss
Net stop swprv
regsvr32 ole32.dll
regsvr32 oleaut32.dll
regsvr32 vss_ps.dll
vssvc /register
regsvr32 /i swprv.dll
regsvr32 /i eventcls.dll
regsvr32 es.dll
regsvr32 stdprov.dll
regsvr32 vssui.dll
regsvr32 msxml.dll
regsvr32 msxml3.dll
regsvr32 msxml4.dll
Net start vss
Net start swprv


Restart and check if you can create restore point

OK , I went through commands again , some worked and installed , others did not . system restore is now on , but i still cant create a restore point . the one that stands out was the "eventcls.dll" i got this "install failed 0x8000ffff ...
Event file pops up more than once , i still get "Host Process for Windows Service has stopped working and was closed" ... have COM+Event error before also ...
we are making progress , thank you ....

Ok

Now go to Run and type

Regedit

Go to this location

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\VSS

If it looks empty then run this registry fix

http://windowsxp.mvps.org/svc/VSS.reg


If it doesnt look empty then export then VSS key and save it on your desktop,delete the key now adn import the reg file given here

Try creating restore point now

Ok click on the link,You can find entries which needs to be copied to a notepad and saved as .reg extension for ex: vss.reg
Now right click on the reg file,import and try turning on restore point

sundar , your help is greatly appreciated but i'm way over my head and not sure about trying to execute your last post . what do ya think ? since system restore is now working again what if i chose a restore point before i installed WiseFixer witch should return me back to all the settings and services that were working . then i would only have to deal with my sound issue witch i think i may have figured out . plus if it dont work i can always undo the restore . correct ??? what ya think ???

p.s. if your ever in central FL , steak and beer on me !

In your intiai post you said that you have turned off system restore which means all your system restore points have been deleted.You dont have any restore point now.

You can't get back to a date before installing wisefixer

you are correct , restore only goes back to 7-20-11 ... not far enough .

" Ok click on the link,You can find entries which needs to be copied to a notepad and saved as .reg extension for ex: vss.reg "

when i clicked on the link it looked nothing like what i saved from vss , and what exactly do you mean by note book ?

Copy those contents to a text document and save it as .reg extension file.Right click on the saved reg file and select import.This should import the valuses to registry

OK , got it saved in documents on notepad as "text document" when importing i can not find the file in documents
Anonymous User
Open a text document and copy the contents and save it as

Filename: vss.reg
Save as type:All files

When you right click on it you should have an option to import

What do you mean when importing you cannot find file???

OK , went back and did the first net stop winmgmt and created a restore point :)
now all that is left is to turn my network indicator on . computer icon in tray has big red X indicating i am not connected even though i am . i am mainly wireless so i need this to work .

thanks a ton for your help so far , you saved me from buying Windows 7 , i was so frustrated ....

happy to hear that.

Now did u make sure that your wireless switch has been turned on?

Hope ur wireless drivers are working fine

go to run and type

ncpa.cpl

Now on your wireless icon ,right click and select diagnose

Let me know what is the actual issue that blocks your wireless connection
