I'm getting an error when i'm trying to do a system restore in safe mode on both a Windows 7 and Windows Vista PCs.

Not all privileges or groups referenced are assigned to the caller. (0x80070514)

I've tried running this is both normal mode and safe mode.
I've tried run as administrator
And i've also tried using the local administrator account.
But still get the same error.

Can anyone help.

Seems like you have some corrupted files on your drives...
try just for first if you can get into repair mode and open a prompt.

Then first run: "SFC /Scannow" (without the quotes)
After reaching you will se if some systemfiles are corrupted, this could affect your issue.

Also, if some writing sectors are wrong I would run a "Chkdsk /R"
just to see..

If you are available, please post a SMART entry for your drives.

Hi,

you will need to make sure that when you select system restore, you right click 'system restore' in start menu and select 'run as administrator' even if you are logged in as a computer admin.
