Sorry, A screen shot of what?

I'm trying this method now, fingers crossed it helps. 
:EDIT: Hmm system restore has been trying to 'create a restore point' for about the last 20 minutes.  Think it's safe to say it's not going to work lol.

Any other suggestions? Still not solved.

Please try to shut down your antivirus/firewall during the backup process.
Does it help?

Okay, well since adding that thing in the registry It just says creating restore point forever, but doesn't actually create it at all...  I've just tried doing it with all the antivirus software turned off and still it doesn't create a restore point...

Any other suggestions? Desperate to find a solution because I currently have no backup of my OS..

Just a small "moderating" sidenote: you would have been better off to make a new topic in THIS case, instead of editing your opening post. Now, the whole topic is extremely confusing to read...

Concerning the problem, go to the System Control Panel, then: System and security -> Administrative tools. Double-click on Services.

Now, look for Microsoft Software Shadow Copy Provider and double-click on it. In the "Startup type", change the option to "Automatic". Click on Apply, then OK.

Back in the Services window, scroll farther down for Volume Shadow Copy, and do the same as above (change option to automatic). Click on Apply, then OK.

Close all windows. Now I suggest you re-boot the computer, after which you try again to create a restore point.


If that doesn't work, then I'm unsure. You might want to consult a more "specialized" site for that; or you can wait for another Helper/Mod/Admin for advice. In either case, good luck !
