        Good Morning All

        Yesterday my System Restore stopped working with the error message 0x81000203 and box as shown in the attached screenshots.  The Properties box is also greyed out and existing System Restore points have been removed.

        The only changes I made after a successful Restore point set-up were an Aomei update from v. 6.2.0 to 6.3.0 and also a zip file containing updated software for my Philips monitor called Smart Control.  I have now deleted/uninstalled both these items with no improvement to System Restore .

        I have tried a few things suggested on the internet eg. enabling Volume Shadow Copy and Microsoft Software Shadow Copy Provider / disabling Security software / full anti-malware scans but with no effect on the System Restore fault.

        Are there any other recommended actions to correct this problem ?

        My OS is Wndows 10 Home 1909 running on a desktop PC.
