Cannot create restore point in windows 7

Asked By 200 points N/A Posted on -


My computer started acting funny and I started to receive all types of error messages.

  • I tried to do a system restore and that is when I noticed that there were no  existing restore points created for my computer. 
  • So I decided to manually create a restore point. The computer went through the process of creating the restore point and I received a message saying that the restore point was completed successfully, but then I do not see it.
  • I restarted my computer and went to the system restore option, but there was no restore points.
  • I created several manual restore points ,but all of them keep disappearing.

Can anyone explain, what the cause of this can be? Thanks folks.
