System protection tab missing win7

April 18, 2016 at 12:26:20
Specs: Windows 7
Im having the same problem (win7 64) reported in http://www.computing.net/answers/wi...
but the shortcut suggested only returns to the system properties with the system protection tab still missing :/
Any other idea on what to do?

Presumably you saw the correction for Win 7 in response #2?

Running SFC /scannow is one of the popular answers for this.

Yes I did try both options and it didn't work. Will try running the SFC command now

not sure what happened (my computer wasn't starting for several hours and then when I managed to start on safe mode - I was getting BSOD even on safe mode -- it didn't start the recovery cuz for some reason it was disabled and I couldn't enable it because I couldn't find the system protection folder), but after leaving my computer off for a couple hours I turned it on and it started normally. Go figure. I managed to set the recovery and run other tests and apparently it's all good now.

one thing I forgot to mention is that I was trying to set up recovery while in safe mode -- maybe system protection is not set to work on safe mode?!

There is more than one way of doing System Restore from Safe Mode (via command Prompt rstrui.exe, or the Start Menu item). I would have thought general System Protection would also be available in Safe Mode but I'm not 100% certain.

Good to here you got it sorted. Just sometimes the most awkward faults seem to suddenly fix themselves, maybe with a little prodding. Thanks for the feedback.

Bear in mind that viruses and malware have knack of shutting off System Protection and Restore. If you have any suspicion then pop back.
