Surface Pro 5 News - release date, UK price, features, specs
After downloading yesterdays GAOTD AYRECOVERY I had massive problems with my Laptop, very slow boot up, pages very slow opening ect so decided to uninstall it, which i did. Now when I try to use system restore I get a message saying "system protection is turned off" I follow the links to turn system proctection on and get as far as a window with available disk and most recent restore point on there, below is a sign saying "searching" I waited 10 mins but nothing happens.
I run win Vista home
any ideas please?
Maybe check to see if Windows own Volume Shadow Copy Service is running, maybe the software you installed turned VSS service off and you may need to start it again.
Bring up a Run box by pressing Windows key and R key together, type in the Run box services.msc and click OK to bring up the services list, scroll down the list to Volume Shadow Copy VSS service and see if it shows as running or started.
Try this to turn on System Protection
Might also be worth checking that Windows Backup Service, SDRSVC is also started and running when having a look in services.
Also in services check to see whether the service Microsoft Software Shadow Copy Provider swprv service is started and running, or set to manual even if not running by double clicking on the services entry in the services list, or right clicking the entry and left clicking Properties, same applies to the other couple of services mentioned.
open a Run command and type in (or copy and paste) the following
rundll32.exe advpack.dll,LaunchINFSection %Windir%\Inf\sr.inf
Hope it works.
I have worked my way through all the above recommendations but still have the same problem.
I still get the message "System protection is turned off.
I copied and paseted link but got "Error could not locate INF file"
When I reboot laptop I get a screen with AyRecovery on and a progress bar runs, I wonder if there are files left behind after the uninstall? I looked on the website but could not see a special programe for uninstalling it properly. I sent an email but dont expect to get a reply soon.
Internet seems OK , but software is taking 5/6mins to load on boot up.(Especially Kasperskys)
It may have left some services running, if you bring up a Run box again and type msconfig and click OK, the system configuration utility box that comes up click on the Services tab, put a tick in the box to Hide all MS services, have a look at the non MS services that are shown are Running, can you identify anything that may be related to the program you uninstalled, also click on the Startup tab and have a look at the Startup items that are ticked, anything related there?
Then maybe bring up Task Manager, by right clicking a blank area of your taskbar along the bottom of your monitor screen and left click Task Manager, have a look on the Processes tab, anything related there, also the Applications tab in Task Manager anything showing there?
If you can still install the software then re-install it. Download and install Revo Uninstaller click here
The free version will do. Restart in Safe Mode (F8) at boot-up and then run Revo. This will give you the opportunity to remove all references to AyRecovery in the registry and you should not get it re-appear when you re-boot your computer.
Im very pleased to report after a bit of browsing I found article that helped,
I went to Compter>System properties>then checked BootC in Available disks, then create it sucsessfully created a restore point and System restore is working fine now.
Thanks for all input
