Preventing "fake" Win Update restore points

Q: Preventing "fake" Win Update restore points

I think this is an quot Update quot thread vs a quot Restore Points quot thread I have Automatic updates Win "fake" points restore Preventing Update turned off and no updates are showing in the update history however when I go to restore points I have one listed every couple days for quot Windows Preventing "fake" Win Update restore points Update quot I read in this forum that no updates were done but that the RP was created when Windows goes through the motions The problem this creates for me is that I now no longer have the restore point for the date I need prior to installing some suspect software Yes I've now increased the disk size for Restore Point to but I still have the issue of not being able to go back to an older restore point So Q Can I stop Windows Update from creating these restore points They are needlessly taking up all my SR space There were no actual computer changes so this was a dumb idea Microsoft Q If I restore to the oldest RP in the list will older ones then show up Yes once this is resolved I will get an imaging software - another good idea I got from this forum

Preferred Solution: Preventing "fake" Win Update restore points

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hello - I have my Windows update settings to "notify but do not download." When I check my history of restore points I see that there are several created anyway with the description "Windows Update-Critical Update." I checked one of them for changes to programs and drivers and the were none. This seems to happening about every 3 days.

Can anyone explain this behavior? Is this just an automatic update that is mislabeled? And why every three days - from my research it appears recovery points are supposedly scheduled every seven days?


Thanks!

A:Why am I getting automatic restore points named "Critical Update"?

Hello Ed, and welcome to Seven Forums.

By default when System Protection is turned on for you C drive, Windows will automatically create a restore point right before any Windows Update is installed. Since it was a critical update, that's why the restore point was named that.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

Task Scheduler is setup to create restore points every day at midnight and at startup. It indicates that it runs successfully but those points do not show up in System Restore.

A:I cannot find Restore Points created "daily" with Task Scheduler.

Do you use Ccleaner. You can also look for restore points in there. Check and see how much hard drive space is free. I see you have a 1 TB bit with lots of info and several restore points they can get full.

Do System Restore Points of type Backup require the actual System Image Backup?

I create a system image backup automatically every week using windows 8 system image backup(that hidden feature). So of course ALL my weekly System Restore Points are of type "BACKUP" i.e. System Image Restore Point & NOT "SYSTEM" i.e. "Automatic Restore Point" see pic below:

When the system image is created it also creates a "System Image Restore Point" of TYPE = "Backup", so my question is, does restoring my computer to one of these restore points actually require the corresponding "system image backup" to make the system restore point work?

I refer only to making use of the system restore point in system protection AND NOT restoring a system image to, for example, a new hard drive.

I hope my question is clear.Thanks Chris

A:Do System Restore Points of type "Backup" require the Bkup

When the system image is created it also creates a "System Image Restore Point" of TYPE = "Backup", so my question is, does restoring my computer to one of these restore points actually require the corresponding "system image backup" to make the system restore point work?

I would say yes it needs the image file. Using the disk cleanup utility you have the option of deleting old system restore backups and shadow copies I believe. And for someone with a decent number of backups this is a massive amount of storage regained because it deletes old images (except the last one) so these backups can get large. So without the image file, the entry is removed and it can't be restored to that point without that image file. Hopefully I understood the question correctly enough.

I close all tabs of IE9 daily and restore them the next day from a blank tab. However, often IE stops working and restarts certain tabs, and when this happens it acts as if no tabs were stored from last session, (the link is dimmed). I found that I can open the Properties of IE folder (AppData\Local\Microsoft) and use Restore Previous Session to restore previous file versions I can possibly recover my last used tabs, depending on the last restore point available there. Apparently, these restore points are not generated daily or controlled by IE. They are generated by Windows Backup and Windows Restore function. Can you suggest an efficient way to creating daily Restore Previous Session points with current version of IE folder?

When I say everything I really mean everything that people usually recommend.

I also tried doing:

And:

and:

and:

System Protection Restore Points - Delete

But deleting that regedit data didn't do a thing. So I simply did a regedit restore. I did a backup before deleting those things in regedit.

I'm really clueless on how to solve this. Can you help me?

Edit: What really would help is tell me where Windows stores all its info on system restore in regedit or elsewhere. As maybe there it has those points listed that I can delete manually.

Also do not tell me to leave it be, as it really bugs me like the OP stated in the topic I linked to.

A:Tried everything to get rid of "System Image Restore Points"

Sorry, I didn't check your links, but if you have saved the system images to another hard drive, then these restore points won't take up much space locally. If you still want to remove them you do this from Windows Backup and Restore - Manage space. When you delete a system image backup from there the corresponding restore point entry you refer to will be deleted too. Unless I've misunderstood you.....

Good Evening All,

I having a problem with my Dell Latitude D610.

I went to update the BIOS and it said that the battery is not installed despite the laptop running solely off of battery power!

I have ran the dell device diagnostic and device manager and no issue appears to be with the battery. When you check the battery info in the BIOS settings it says the batteries are not installed and also when you log into XP it constantly says running off of AC power even when its not plugged in!

Any one got any ideas what could be causing this and how it can be solved?

Thanks Nick
 

A:Dell Latitude "battery not installed" preventing BIOS update

It may be referring to the CMOS battery which is wired to the computer beneath the keyboard. The battery can be replaced for $8.95 to $29.95 depending on where you purchase...

But regardless, you do have a problem that must be resolved. The D610 has been one strange little irrelevant problem after another... but you cannot afford to irritate it and have that mysterious unremovable password appear as it has on so many D610 and D620 Dells.

Yesterday, I tried downloading the full version of Windows 8.1 from the Windows store. It ran the first two steps (downloading, installing), and then it came to "checking for compatibility." After five minutes, I got a message in the form of a banner across the screen (the color of my metro background) that said I needed to uninstall an app called "Kaspersky Internet Security Suite/Anti-Virus/Pure/Crystal. I ran the executable file "kavremover" from the Kaspersky website to completely remove my existing anti-virus software (Anti-Virus Internet Security 2013) and all versions of "Kaspersky Pure." Upon the 10th reboot and installation attempt, it continues to show me this message. What can I do?

A:"Compatibility Issues" Preventing Windows 8.1 Update

Hi Vialtoclef,

Apparently, Kapersky has a product tutorial on how to prepare your computer for the Windows 8.1 update:

Important tip: Prepare for the Windows 8.1 update

I do understand that the removal tool should have worked; however, since it did not, maybe you can do a reinstall and follow the preparation tutorial to see if it takes when your computer (using Kapersky) is properly prepared for the update. Good luck.

The only way I know how to view Restore Points is to invoke System Restore and click Show me more points....and that's about it.

I allocated 5GB for System Restore and the last time I checked Windows was using less than 1GB out of the 5GB, however 2 restore points I created only few days ago are missing from the "Show me more points...", so now I'm trying to locate where exactly is W7 storing all those Restore points and hopefully I can copy/save to a different location/file as backup.

Thanks.

P/s I've gone thru all folders in C, but I couldn't locate the Restore Points folder!

A:Where is W7 keeping the "Restore Points"?

You have run into a common problem with 7. For some reason Microsoft doesn't want you go back more than a week. Can't give you a reason why. Maybe someone where on the forums will be able to answer your question. Here is a web site explaining Windows 7 restore. This article gives you an extensive look into the Restore Feature. Maybe it will help you a little bit.

A:NO DESKTOP after booting up & SYSTEM RESTORE "Incomplete" & "Strange" Temp Files

Usually when the machine has a "blank" desktop, the boot/startup process has been interupted or is frozen to before Explorer is launched.

You can launch Explorer manually be navigating C:\Windows and double-clicking "Explorer".

If successful, do the following:

Start>Run>(type) "msconfig" and turn off all non-MS services and all startups.

Then, Start>Run>(type) "cmd", and at the command prompt type "chkdsk /f" and schedule a chkdsk to run on next reboot.

Reboot system and report results.

When installing SP2 on my computer, there was a box that recommended "Backing up my system" before proceeding. So I created a restore point. I will install it on my daughter's computer next, and would like to know if I was supposed to do anything fancier than creating a restore point before installing SP2?

In Windows XP, fully updated, I have several folders full of mp3's and want to see the bit rate and duration. I right click on a column heading and select "Bit rate". I then click on "More..." so I can get to "Duration", and I select that one too.

But all the figures in the "Duration" column appear to be in "hours" and "minutes", so I see "00:04" or "00:03", but what I want is "minutes" and "seconds".

Any thoughts as to how to change this?

So I have this weird thing happening in my relatively fresh install of Windows 10.
Whenever I search for "Check for Updates" or "Windows Update settings" on the search box of the start menu, I get the results that I want but if I press enter or try to click on those results nothing happens.. As far as I know I can click all others search results but those, and maybe others related to windows update.

I can still get updates by going to Settings>Update & Security though.

In my other computers this works fine, and as far as I can tell all the updates are done.
From what I've searched around other people seemed to have a similar issue where they couldn't acess the settings at all which isn't my case. Still I tried the sfc/ scannow that a lot of users seemed to recommend but no results.

Spanker,
.............. Still I tried the sfc/ scannow that a lot of users seemed to recommend but no results. .....................

Please clarify what did you mean by "no results".

When sfc /scannow is completed, it will give you one of the following 3 reports....................(paraphrasing)

1. No integrity violation.
2. Found corrupted files and repair is successful.
3. Found corrupted files but unable to repair some of them.

Which one of the above is applicable to you ?

Hi --

I just migrated to a new hard drive and did a clean install of Win7 (did not have SP1 on the DVD).

During the Updating process, windows stopped working and I received an error, something about running Update again, etc. So I rebooted and finished the Upgrading process...no further problems noted.

However, I view the "Installed Updates" and see that KB2604114 and about 20 other updates "FAILED." But when I view the "Update History," it lists KB2604114 and the others as "installed."

I'm confused. Are the updates I'm referring to "FAILED" or are they properly installed?

Thanks!

A:Win7 - "View Update History" vs. "Installed Update"

In your description, you might have switched the observations.

"History" is a log that tracks attempts at installing specific updates. One user might have multiple failed attempts for a particular update; or multiple successful attempts if one was looking for a source of a problem.

"Installed updates" records the last successful installation of a specific update; no timestamp, just the date.

I also clicked on the "more information" for the Microsoft Knowledge Base, but nothing came up there either.

Also note that it can't be unchecked/deselected.

Edit: It seems this update removes kb3004394 and vanish without a trace (except in History).
Neither seems to be available in the uninstall list afterwards.

Ok heres the deal.
I crashed my system and have done a clean install. I couldn't find my winxp pro disk so I barrowed my friends. His has SP2 on it. I then found out after installing it, that it wouldn't work with my product key. So i had to go searching for my disk. Thankfully I found it, and did a windows repair to reinstall the system with the new disk.
My disk didn't have SP2 on it.

So I go to windows update to do updates and it trys to install like 80 something updates and everytime it comes back with ": A problem on your computer is preventing updates from being downloaded or installed "

I have a feeling that it thinks SP2 is on my system. is there a way to resolve this without having to do another clean install?

John

A:"A problem on your computer is preventing updates from being downloaded or installed"

Hello and Welcome to TSF


Why wouldn't it work with your product key?
It is better to install with SP2 incorporated onto the cd, saves a lot of time. SP2 should have been eliminated while performing the repair install.

You could try the following but you need SP2 installed before installing the updates, the site should have recognized it was not installed. If the following does not help then I suggest you Slipstream Windows XP Service Pack 2 and Create Bootable CD and do a clean install using the proper software


Try re-registering the windows update components. This may help fix a corrupt installer


1. Click on Start and Run,
2. Type "REGSVR32 WUAPI.DLL" (without quotation marks) and press Enter.
3. Should get the message "DllRegisterServer in WUAPI.DLL succeeded" Click OK.

A:"folder in use" warning preventing me from moving files

Both Itunes and Windows Media Player have "Music Servers" and you have to shut those off in the Program Prefs for each Program. If your Laptop is connected to any other computers through a LAN you may have your iTunes or WMP libraries shared with other systems, those have to be disconnected as well at both ends. I've got an Itunes Library and a Plex server spanning 3 machines, so I cant directly edit anything in my "Music" libraries, I can copy them out though.

One thing you can try, is disable your Network adapter on your laptop, wait about a minute, then try to access the files again, if your files are locked due to an external library, that should unlock em. And turn off any 'Sharing: prefs in WMP and iTunes (if installed).

If you have any other music app, like Foobar2000, you have to make sure that is turned off and not sharing as well. Also, Windows Media Center will also share your Library. With WMP and WMC, you can remove the shared folders from the libraries and that should free them up.

A:Solved: Is a "RE-INSTALL" & a "RESTORE" the same thing?

No they aren't (fortunately) the same. Your definitions of reinstall is more or less on track provided that you mean reinstall Windows. Restoring to factory settings is a reinstall from a disk or image provided by the manufacturer. System Restore however simply roles back critical system files to a previous date, leaving programs and files intact. It does however have a limited length of time over which it can roll back.

The best thing that you can do as far as keeping your software and settings is concerned is make and store a full disk image once you first set it up. To make sure you keep your files, simply get a regular backup going.

Unfortunately you don't want your main disk image to include all the problems that necessitate a reinstall. If you have to get rid of Windows you'll have to sacrifice programs and settings because it will be those that cause the present problem. Make an image once you either diagnose and fix the problems or reinstall and personalize windows.

Don't give up on the possibility of repair for the moment. If you are worried only about freshening it up there are techniques and tools to do that for you. If you are worried about something more serious there are plenty of people here who can advise.

I've tried a couple of things that MS Support suggests but they don't work and don't seem to really apply to this particular error message. Searching for the error code 80246007 hasn't yielded anything yet that works.

I understand that this Windows service has something to do with maintaining keeping links to files on a network pointing in the right direction I'm currently disabling this Windows service seeing as I most probably don't need it I only run a simple home network using a router I hope this doesn't affect the junction-point functionality or the NTFS file system in any other way I know that Windows uses hard links extensively for example I'm pretty sure it's safe to disable in my case I'm just looking for a confirmation second opinion Would disabling this service harm the Windows installation in any other way I mean besides losing network links updating I'm posting in the quot tweaking quot area of the forum because this is what I'm trying to do Disabling stuff in Windows for the sake of performance Please don't answer with a simple quot it is not recommended to mess with system Client" Tracking points Link "Distributed and service NTFS junction settings quot "Distributed Link Tracking Client" service and NTFS junction points or things like that unless you can tell me what would go wrong precisely I'm "Distributed Link Tracking Client" service and NTFS junction points expecting answers specifics Thank you

A:"Distributed Link Tracking Client" service and NTFS junction points

The issue is that nobody can tell you precisely what disabling this service will do. The reason being that Microsoft has never fully documented what each service does. Do not try to read to much into the name. Many services do more that is documented - anywhere. Nobody can tell you for certain that disabling this service will not have a negative impact on your system. Since the performance benefits from doing this are essentially zero I would leave it alone.

I have had bad experiences from disabling a service I thought was unnecessary - but was.

It appears that some AV products will not function properly if this service is disabled. There areprobbaly others.

,,,,different ways that W7 is backing up my files?

what is the proper/best way to use either?

thx

A:is "backup and restore" and "system restore" different,,,

Backup and Restore backs up by default system files, the registry and documents, pictures, videos, and music. System Restore makes a backup of application files and system files and the registry. A system restore point should be made before installing programs in case anything goes wrong. A backup through backup and restore should be done in a monthly or weekly schedule since a drive can fail at any tine. Backup and Restore needs another drive to backup files to or else you will be filling up your system drive. There are better alternatives for it such as Macrium Reflect, but this is the simplest way of backing up in my opinion.

Another question/puzzle. Windows 8.1 Enterprise.

I clean installed W8.1 three days ago, and the first thing I did was bring it up to date with all the offered updates. All installed successfully and I thought no more of it. At some point after this I made a system image backup, which today I have restored to. When I now look at the "classic" windows update screen it says I have never checked for updates and none are installed. Forcing a check for updates brings only two up as can be seen in the pictures. If I go to "view installed updates" then there is a lot of stuff in there, whih I assume could be the previously installed original batch.
I'm guessing this is normal behaviour but it seems slightly odd (the on screen messages at least)

A:No update history says "never checked" & "never installed"

Not odd... Considering that is a "clean install"(albeit with integrated updates) - thus no update history (file) exists.

Hi,

When our website users click on an html attachment embedded on a web-page in IE9, the download manager will not display the "Open" option. It will only display "Save" and "Cancel" which our users don't like, having to save the
html document in a folder to open it. Whereas, when downloading attachments like pdf, word etc. all three options are displayed. 

Is there any setting to tweak , which will display all the 3 options for HTML attachments as well?

A:IE9 download manager will not display "Open" option (only "Save" and "Cancel" is displayed) for downloading HTML documents.

Hi,
As you know, the Open-Save-Cancel dialog box helps you prevent your computer from affecting by virus while downloading. 
So I suggest you test to reset all zones to a lower level temporarily and then please attempt to download this html attachment again.

However, since you can normally download the other documents, I suspect there is some restriction in the website which you are trying to view. I recommend you to contact the administrator of that website if possible.
could you please send me the link of the website from where you are trying to download the html attachment?
Thanks!

Hello,

I tend to change my MAC address from time to time for various reasons. This is very easy on linux (one line command) and previous versions of Windows (one registry change).

However in Windows 7 I have not been able to change my MAC address and its very irritating!!!!!!... :)

The "SMAC" software may work but I'm not sure if this software is spooky..the website style is very 1990ish..

Advise anyone?

If you have an active internet connection, copy/paste the links below into your browser, don't click them or the rogue might redirect. If you don't have an active internet connection, download the tools from another machine, and transfer them to the affected machine via USB flash drive.


Please download and run the following tool to help allow other programs to run. (courtesy of BleepingComputer.com)
There are 3 different versions. If one of them won't run then download and try to run the other one.
Vista and Win7 users need to right click and choose Run as Admin
You only need to get one of them to run, not all of them.


http://download.bleepingcomputer.com/grinler/rkill.exe
http://download.bleepingcomputer.com/grinler/rkill.com
http://download.bleepingcomputer.com/grinler/rkill.scr



Note:

You will likely see a message from this rogue telling you the file is infected. Ignore the message. Leave the message OPEN, do not close the message. Run rkill repeatedly until it's able to do it's job. This may take a few tries. You'll be able to tell rkill has done it's job when your desktop (explorer.exe) cycles off and then on again.

At this point, you should now be able to run analysis tools.

Once the tool has run, do NOT reboot the machine, and then try once again to run DDS and GMER.

We prefer a more comprehensive set of logs to assist in detecting any malware that may be present.

Please follow our pre-posting process outlined here:

NEW INSTRUCTIONS - Read This Before Posting For Malware Removal Help

After running through all the steps, please post the requested logs.

If you have trouble with one of the steps, simply move on to the next one, and make note of it in your reply.

If for some reason the machine reboots, repeat the process. Again, try not to restart the machine.

Another option is to use Safe Mode with Networking

Restart your computer and boot into Safe Mode with Networking by tapping the F8 key repeatedly until a menu shows up (and choose Safe Mode with Networking from the list). In some systems, this may be the F5 key, so try that if F8 doesn't work. Login on your usual account.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Then perform the above steps.

A:Fake anti-virus starts "scanning" but reboots PC

Try to install Malwarebytes AntiMalware free in safe mode with networking,
update it & do a full scan. It should be able to detect & remove the fake AV.

Hi. I have a folder that appeared in C:\Windows\Program Files called "microsoft frontpage" (lowercase letters). It contains a folder entitled "version 3.0" which contains a folder entitled "bin" which appears to contain nothing at all. After trying to use a file/folder unlocker to help delete the folder it stated that a process entitled winlogon.exe was keeping the folder from being deleted and the process path was \??\C:\WINDOWS\system32\winlogon.exe. I've read that some trojans\viruses attach themselves to winlogon.exe and that appears to be the problem. Does anyone know how I can safely remove the virus from winlogon.exe as well as delete the fake microsoft frontpage folder?

Any help is appreciated and thank you in advance.

Target Sony Vaio PCV-RX w XP SP Have Security I think) popup fake solution-search "Windows ( Essentials" with Virus a Norton antivirus Got a message from it saying it had stopped a Virus with fake "Windows Security Essentials" ( I think) solution-search popup trojan Then a window popped up offering to search multiple search engines for a solution I vaguely I was tired ok noticed that it claimed on the top bar to be quot Windows Security Essentials quot which should have caused me to yank the cord since though I'd recently installed WSE on a laptop I still had a Norton sub on this computer So I watched it as it pretended to search little green boxes as I recall and clicked on one of the four that claimed to Virus with fake "Windows Security Essentials" ( I think) solution-search popup be a solution duh Obviously no real antivirus would follow this procedure but Norton had worked before and I was not alert All the Firefox instances closed immediately and then what appeared to be a power-off -restart procedure self-initiated It was aborted by what appeared to be a memory error and now Windows keeps recycling back to the choose-startup-mode screen I stuck in the Sony System recovery CD just to see what would happen and it Virus with fake "Windows Security Essentials" ( I think) solution-search popup proceeds to the point where it says quot File i system hjalaacpi dll could not be loaded quot quot The error code is quot quot Setup cannot continue Press any key to exit quot Exiting initiates a reboot and since the recovery cd is in the drive a loop Or if I take it out the start mode loop I take that back I just looked up and this time I've got a BSOD quot windows had been shut down to prevent damage quot quot SESSION INITIALIZATION FAILED quot Bad timing I have only partial data backup duh squared and a tax deadline coming up next Friday duh cubed I think I can work around this but I would sure prefer not to So I plan to take it to someone at least semi-professional Monday to attempt data recovery but What hit me Looking online it's modus looks like some trojans that attempt to sell fake anti-virus services Can anyone ID exactly which one Nobody is going to make money by bricking my computer so I don't think that was the intent And I've been ignoring some BSODs and memory errors duh what's beyond cubed Quinted so it might have been a double whammy Was the definately a result of cd or hd problems I'm thinking of trying to create an Ultimate Boot CD but don't know ISO or slipstreaming from tapdancing and don't have a windows distribution just the restores Does this sound doable Wrong forum I know but I'm crashing now without exploring or posting elsewhere so if you have some info at your fingertips I'd appreciate the input Thanks

Well, thank you all.

Btw, the Sony proved unbootable enough that the easiest solution was to slave its drive in another computer. All the files seem ok. MalwareBytes Anti-Malware did't find any trace of the virus on it.
