Settings Grayed Out After Using System Restore Point

Aug 31, 2015

After restoring my computer back two days using System Restore, I noticed in PC Settings>Personalization>Start>Choose which folders appear on Start, that all the options are greyed out except "Settings". I was wondering if there was a way to fix this? I already tried SFC /Scannow and DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth, but neither fixed the problem.

Performance :: System Restore Point Configure

Dec 9, 2015

New desktop computer - Windows 10 Home. In System Restore, Configure, the Max Usage slider is all the way to the left.What does that mean?The hard drive is 1 TB, so I'm not concerned about how much it uses.(On my old Windows 7 desktop, I moved the slider to the right and it now saves fewer restore points.)

Installation :: Create System Restore Point?

Dec 30, 2015

After the recent (automatic) upgrade to windows 10 ( I have been running windows 10 for months), I can sign in to windows 10 but the desktop that appears with my sign in is something foreign and all my files, pictures and videos are NOT in any folders under Documents. So I thought I would go back to a restore point but am a bit afraid to since I cannot find a Restore file and I don't know how Microsoft and windows 10 works in this are or if my files are included in the automatic backup by the "system restore point" process. Then I thought I should, on my other windows 10 laptops, "create" a restore point from time to time as I feel is needed.

No System Restore Point Created During Microsoft Update

Aug 6, 2015

I upgraded from Win 7 to Win 10 this past week. All is well except for one thing. I received an update from Microsoft yesterday (Cumulative Update for Win 10 - KB3081424) and noted during the installation that no restore point was created. System Protection is ON and I am able to create restore points manually. Thus, this is only a minor annoyance since I can successfully create these points on my own. However, I would prefer for the system to do so when important updates from Microsoft come down. I guess it is possible that the update referenced above did not generate such a point but found that unusual since it is listed as a Cumulative Update.

Performance :: Scheduling System Restore Point Creation

Oct 11, 2015

I see that Win10 has deleted the function to schedule the creation of restore points! Supposedly it creates a new restore point before downloading updates (if the function is turned on; by default it is off!).

I like to schedule the creation of points every few days or each week to prevent viruses from corrupting things. This feature is so important; I can't believe they have hidden it, made it less functional, and turned it off by default!

Is there any way to run the creation button from the task scheduler or something to automatically schedule restore point creation?

Unable To Use Instant Restore Point?

Aug 28, 2015

I was able to use Instant_Restore_Point under Win 8 (worked great), which I found here: [URL]

But I can't get it to run under Win 10, even after adding (in the appropriate place) these lines:

If instr(objOS.Caption, "Windows 10") Then
GetOS = "Windows 10"

And making the adjustment:If GetOS = "Windows 8" Or GetOS = "Windows 10" Then

How can I get this script to work?

Performance :: Any Way To Save One Specific Restore Point

Feb 10, 2016

I have restore point space limited to 2Gigs on my Tablet. I've noticed that when a new restore point is created at the top of the list, an old one is removed from the bottom of the list. Sooner or later, I will end up with totally new restore points. Is there a way to save one specific restore point, and not loose it? (without actually backing up (not an option on my Tablet) ).

Installation :: Restore To Earlier Point In Time

Nov 29, 2015

I set tried to set up the mail app. I was not suscessful. Would not sync. No mail from Outlook. I read how to delete the mail app and reinstall it from the shop. I ran the program to do that and it work. It removed the Mal and calendar app.

When I tried to go to the shop app, and down load the current mail app, as instructed, the shop will only stay open 3 seconds and then it will close. I rebooted the computer several times, no avail.

My question is how do I restore my computer to just before I removed the mail app.

Performance :: Restore Point - Property Page Error

Nov 29, 2015

When I manually try and make a restore point using the windows program it ends with a property page error.

It still does the restore point ok and seems to work all right if I need to use that point to restore.

No error notifications pop up using the System Restore Point shortcut tool or when system does a restore point when adding new programs or drivers.

So my best guess is the error is showing up because this page is open

Does it on two machines running Home 10586.14

Some Privacy Settings Grayed Out

Aug 17, 2015

I've been using Windows 10 for a few weeks now and I was looking to get Cortana to work. However, Cortana tells me that I need to allow it to access contacts. I clicked settings and I saw that all the settings were on, but were grayed out.

When I take a look at some of the other settings, some are also grayed out and some are not. When I go to the general tab, I get this:

Sometimes if I look through the privacy settings, the settings app just crashes for no reason without warning and I'm left confused and unable to enable Cortana.

Apps :: System Restore Doesn't Restore Uninstalled Software

Dec 16, 2015

Maybe I have a misunderstanding of how System Restore works. Yesterday I uninstalled a program that I'd like to now get back. The company that made the program no longer offers archive downloads for that program in particular. Today it occurred to me that I could do a System Restore to when the program was still on this laptop & all would be returned as it was.

The first 2 times I tried was a total fail for returning the program but when I went back to a week ago it was there. Something is missing & it errors asking for the old install software that doesn't exist anymore (the program was purchased it 2008).

System Icons Grayed Out

Aug 10, 2015

My system icons icons are greyed out, like Volume and Power, so I can not enable them.After setup they work just fine, then they disappear. It is either caused by my settings or: I wonder, when custom power and sound card drivers gets installed, they get lost?

SFC scan does nothing. By playing with settings and closing explorer.exe, volume icon appeared and stated, that there is no audio service running, when I moved the slider, the message and red X disappeared, but after restarting explorer.exe, it was gone again. My sound card audio service, Windows audio are running. Seems this problems happens: System Icons Greyed Out for Windows 10 - Microsoft Community
