SerenitySchmidt Guest Hi, My computer will not turn "system restore" on - can someone please help me figure out what is happening ~ or how I can turn it back on... http://netlookmag.com/system-restore/system-restore-is-not-able-to-protect-your-computer.html Since when I click on the "Restore/Enable system restore" not the "Undo" it just appears as a bunch or words. I could fix it with malewarebytes's anti-malware http://www.malwarebytes.org/mbam.php I had to rename the setup exe. Now go back into systemrestore the 3rd time and create a restore point to see if it works.

The stupid thing I made was that after this didn't work I decided to "kill" the svchost.exe (as the windows utility suggested) and the everything went wrong - I couldn't do now, i'm just not sure how to go about executing this file. please restart your computer, and then run system restore again. Unfortunately this is where things get a little sketchy, because I wasn't taking notes, but it went roughly like this.
