When I try to run System Restore I get the following Error:

"The Program can't start because SRCORE.dll is missing....."

I located SRCORE.dll and registered it using the command processor:
"Regsvr32 C:\Windows\System32\srcore.dll"

I got "DllRegisterServer in C:\Windows\System32\srcore.dll succeeded"

but I still get the same error message when I try to run System Restore:
"The Program can't start because SRCORE.dll is missing....."

System Restore used to run fine, until I got hit be Malware which I removed.

Help anyone?

Run a chkdsk on the hard disk and then run sfc /scannow to scan the system for any other missing system files.

Thanks for the advice.

I ran chkdsk and found no problem.  sfc /scannow showed everything OK.

Any other possibilities?

Maybe your path is wrong. run echo %PATH% and check that C:\Windows\System32 is in the path so that it can find it.

You can modify the path via System control panel, Advanced, Environment variables.

Many pieces of malware attempt to disable or corrupt the System Restore files so that you are unable to use Sr to get rid of the malware.

Have you looked at this solution?

Have you tried running System Restore when in Safe Mode?

If all else fails consider a Repair Install.

It should not affect your personal data or installed programs.

Or maybe I should have asked this question first.  What problem are you trying to fix by running a System Restore?

Hi Everyone, so far i've tried everything except "Repair-Install".  Before I do this I want to clone an image of my C-Drive (FYI I use Shadow Copy) and I did not have a hard drive available.  As soon as I complete "Repair-Install" I will let everyone know,

Thanks for your patience.
