I was able to create a current restore point, but when I try to do a System Restore, I'm told "No restore points have been created".

Did you turn System Restore back on?  Is the Volume Shadow Copy Service turned on?

sound like you disabled system restore, even though you created a restore point once you disable system restore you will not be able to see old restore point in recovery mode.
there are other reasons that might cause troubles with system restore like a virus of hard drive corruption, but most of the cases its just disabled..

did you try restoring in safe mode?


Hope this helps,

Gilad

I was able to access System Restore disk by disk and create a Rescue Point, but there are no others on the system now.

Booted in Safe Mode, still only the one restore point that I had just created.

When I did normal reboot, it enabled and loaded a ton of Startup and Services items, for some reason.

I suspect foul play...

nobus - I ran sfc /scannow 3 times, it found nothing. I downloaded and ran System Update Readiness Tool and it installed, However, it's been trying to install Hotfix for Windows (KB947821) for the past 30 minutes without progress.

NADIR - I'm not using dual boot, but what malware app would you recommend?

This thread started out with a problem with System Restore.  It seems that was solved.  (The fact that only restore points created after fixing System Restore are available cannot be fixed.)

Now the problem is with running a hot fix.  The early thread should have been closed and a new one started.

You say you have installed KB947821 but then a hot fix (which you name KB947821) is not completing.  I am confused.  KB947821 is the Windows Update Readiness Tool.  What is the hot fix?

You seem to have serial problems with your installation of Win 7.

I agree with nobus.  Run Repair Install.
