    System Restore did not complete successfully.

    System Restore did not complete successfully. Your computer's system files
    and settings were not changed.

    Details:

    The shadow copy provider had an unexpected error while trying to process the
    specified operation. (0x8004230F)


    You might want to try System Restore again and choose a different restore
    point. For more information, see System Restore: FAQ.

    [Run System Restore] [Close]

    I am running this on a new Vista Home Basic, on a two month old laptop. I've
    tried literally every restore point available, and this issue always pops up.

    Any insight, workarounds, or help on this? Thanks![/u]

    If you have any Symantec/Norton software installed, see the following
    website.

    "Restoration Incomplete. Your computer cannot be restored . . . ":
    http://bertk.mvps.org/html/symantecdoc1.html

    Otherwise, go here:

    not sure this will help, by restore wont complete if you have Norton
    Product Protection enabled if you have a Norton AV program installed.
    the solution? turn off product protection temporarily and do the restore.
