A customer's PC is getting very slow after being switched on for some hours.
Seems to be some kind of disk issue....
When going into System Protection, most selections are greyed out and not available (see attached screenshot)
Don't know if this is causing the slowdown, but it doesn't look right.
Have checked (and fixed) the disk for errors (chkdsk).
Uninstalled un-needed applications. User has administrator privileges.
Any suggestions how to get this system protection up and running again?
Eirman: Checked registry. OK. Also checked the policies - ok.
nobus: Checked hard drive and ram. Seems ok. Also made a disk image (using Acronis), vut new disk had same problem.
Bios battery: 3.3V.
Also tried to run as Administrator, but same problem.
There is also an error message popping up when the System Protection is started. It reads something like (translated from Norwegian):
An unexpected error occured on the properties page:
System restore discovered an error. Try to run System Restore again (0x81000203)
Close properties and try again
Checked this error code and found a suggestion to check the Volume Shadow Copy service. Wasn't running, but error still after it was set to Automatic and Running.
There was also another suggestion to check a service called System Restore. Can't find this on the Win7 PC.
Any more ideas??
