Specs: Windows 7 Home Premium, Intel Quad 4,2.8GHz,4gigs
W7x64: system restore error 0x80070057. I can create restore points, however I can't use them as I get error code 0x80070057. Something about wrong parameters.Was working fine until I deleted one of my drive partions.
How do I fix?

On the drive partition that exists now, you could disable system restore and then re-enable it.

Go to Control Panel/System/System Restore, and then select the option to turn off system restore on all drives.

The link I provided is for a feature in Windows 7 that attempts to repair problems with Windows without re-installing. If you read the link it explains how to run it.

It is not the same thing as system restore.

Also make a Windows 7 Repair Disk (see back up section). This disk can run System Restore (as well as Start up repair) from outside of your installed operating system and use previously created restore points. This is an important tool and may become very important, especially if you need to restore before everything is fixed. This disk can also be made from another W7 machine as long as both are 32bit or 64bit (they must be the same).

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.
