    System Restore Unexpected Error 8007007B

    System Restore Unexpected Error 8007007B
    Is the one I get trying to run System Restore in Vista Home Premium.
    It says
    The filename, directory name, or volume label syntax is incorrect.
    (0x8007007B)

    System Restore will now close.


    Any ideas. Tried to run as administrator and that did not help.

    Do you have Norton Antivirus (NAV) installed. If so disable it, then run
    system restore , then reenable NAV.

    Hi Gilbert,

    Press the WinKey on the keyboard and type or paste
    SystemPropertiesProtection then press enter.

    Deselect the "C: Missing" checkbox and select "Local Disk C:" to enable
    System Restore.

    Hi Gilbert,

    I found the answer on these MS newsgroups.

    This error was created do to an issue with the way Gateway imaged some of
    there drives with Vista. As far as I know it has not made it's way to the MS
    knowledge base. You could check the Gateway KB if they have one.

    Could you send me a screen shot of the System Properties dialog box with the
    "C: Missing on it? Send to bertNS@mvps.org (Remove the NS to reply).

    I tried to get the shot but the error C: Missing is no longer there.
    It seems to remove it when you deselect it and or after a reboot.


    Vista has lot lot problems. I am about to post about sound handling.
    Every part of a sound controller gets a different device id. That is
    that the input and output devices each have a different ID. That did
    not happen in XP and MANY program are written with that assumption so
    when you have more than one card it gets it wrong unless you are using
    the default card.

    I wish there were a registry key to change to fix this but apparently
    there is not. I think that was an really bad decision not to make at
    least a backward compatible option for this as it will break a LOT of
    code.

    Hi.

    I was installing a fresh copy of kaspersky downloaded from
    kaspersky.com and it was for some reason corrupted. I am using Vista.
    During install proces, I got a blue screen and my PC rebooted. Upon
    reboot, check disk started and tons and tons of errors were detected,
    line after line non-stop, with words like "orphaned", "deleted",
    "corrupt" etc. Screen was moving too fast to read anything.

    Anyway. I couldn't get back into vista. I got the the blue screen and a
    crash every time I tried. I even tried "last good config" but it didn't
    let me in.

    Finally, I managed to get into safe mode and tried to do a system
    restore. It didn't let me. I got the error message:

    -System Restore Unexpected Error
    The filename, directory name, or volume label syntax is incorrect.
    (0x8007007B)
    System Restore will now close.-

    That's when I began searching for more info on this error message until
    I came across this thread.

    I am just about to follow the steps that Bert Kinney has given since
    they worked for someone above.

    But before I do that, I noticed that he had requested for a screenshot
    of the window with "missing" on it.

    I've just taken the screenshot and I'm mailing it to you Bert. Hope
    it's not too late for whatever use you will make out of it.

    Thanks.

    I am having the exact same problem. Will you send me a copy of those
    instructions and did you resolve the issue?
