    Howdy y'all! I could use some help in figuring out why my system can't restore.

    I'm running W7 on a 64-bit machine. Problems started about a week ago, when I noticed all the file icons had gone corrupt. I tried restoring my icon cache using cmd, and that worked for about 10 minutes after reboot, then the icons disappeared again. So I tried to do a system restore, and got the attached two errors in succession:

    As always, any insights, solutions or suggestions you can offer would be greatly appreciated.

    Reboot computer into safe mode and run system restore from there.

    What might be happening is your antivirus or some other program is conflicting with restore.

    Thanks for the suggestion. Tried it... the *@*#! thing won't start up in safe mode either. I'm thinking now it might be some pernicious virus.
