To resolve the issue I tried to restore my system to an earlier date but it failed. I have tried different restore points but no success.

mmm recall monitoring your previous post.

This suggestion is très long shot... Nip over to:

http://www.tweaking.com/content/pag...

download and run the very excellent, free - and safe to use utility over there.

Do NOT use the very obvious big green download button at the top of the page; rather scroll down a wee bit to the four mirror site links, and download it that way. The big green button is an ad promoted item which you neither need nor want. Sadly just about all sites these have paid for stuff carefully positioned to watch the eye; and lead one to think that's the download button to use for item you actually want - and it isn't.

The utility will go through the windows installation and fix anything it finds that is not as ought be. It can be run in normal mode; but they also suggest it's better in safe-mode. It offers a few suggestions re' running it - and it's wise to adopt them all. I n fact it will actually do the assorted routines automatically if you let it. It will back up the registry as part of the process; so no need of concern there.

I have found it to be very useful couple of times when dealing with apparently unresolveable issues.

You can try disabling any antivirus apps as some will not allow you to restore.

It could also be that the service and restore points are all corrupted. We want to think this can't or won't happen, but it happens more often than you'd think. WSR is very fragile in this sense.

In other words, aside from disabling AV, I'd say these restore points are goners. Best you can do is perhaps look into replacing the service with a third party program that does the same thing like Comodo Time Machine or Rollback Rx.
