I have a problem with one of my Windows 7 netbooks. I went to System Restore to delete some old restore points by turning it off then on again.When you turn System Restore on or off,a first Windows opens and then a second one does. Then to turn it on or off you select turn System Restore on or off,then click apply and then click ok. And then you get the first Windows you opened and click ok to apply setting.
But the problem I am having now is that-when I try to turn system restore on or off I get an error message saying-"could not check schedule file for the following reason: Cannot create a file when that file already exists(OX800700B7)." This happens after I click apply.
Then when I click Ok after that, I get another error message saying"there was an unexpected error in the property page.Cannot create a file when that file already exists. OX800700B7.Please close the property page and try again,ok.
So now every time I need to turn System restore on or off I have to select turn on or off. And after I click apply,and then ok-I have to select cancel,to get rid of the error message other wise Windows will not let me close the Windows in System Restore. then after that I click ok in the first setting windows that opens.and i can still turn System Restore on or off like that.
And I have tested System Restore to see if it works. And I can still restore my computer to an earlier time. So it still works but now I still keep getting that error message I told you about.
And when I went to Windows Update-it said updates have never been installed on my computer,when they have been. so it seems a fault on my netbook has wiped out my update history of the past six months. But when I did a check for updates after seeing that update message it installed some updates for me.
Yesterday I installed Windows Live Photo Gallery for Windows XP-not Windows live 2011.but Windows Live 2009 for Windows XP is for all versions of Windows and for Windows 7.I downloaded it from the Microsoft website by the way. But I had nothing but problems with Windows Live Photo Gallery. It froze on my computer-so I uninstalled it. And every since then I have had this problem with system restore on my computer. Windows Photo gallery come with Windows live sync and a lot of other software bundled into it when you uninstall. So I think that could be the problem,that is causing the problem I have got now with the error message. Which I don't know how to fix.
Why am I now having this problem with my computer-the System Restore error message and my update history has been erased from Windows update? What could be the problem? And can it be fixed without reinstalling Windows?
I have posted some images from my computer of the error messages and the message from Windows update. So what is the problem? Andrea Borman.
