New Sony Vaio, Windows 7 Professional, Avast AV, PCTools Firewall. Problems from day one. BSOD (not seen since Windows 98) randomly appearing, big memory dumps, no obvious reasons. After about 2 weeks I found that System Restore was not working which surprises me since MS have said that the OS is stable and reliable. Searched this forum and many others via Google and tried many of the suggested solutions but to no avail.
System Restore is an important facility and I just do not understand how it can be broken so easily. It appears to be common place amongst Win 7 users judging by the number of posts on the topic, so why has MS not issued a fix to protect System Restore? Silly question I suppose having no answer.
Please, if any contributors to this excellent forum can help to get my System Restore back to working order I would be truly grateful. I have spent more than a week trying to find a solution without posting here but have failed in my endeavour.
