All my System Restore points are corrupted?

    All my System Restore points are corrupted?

    I have a .dll which I use to Show sort headings in all views (Win 8, File Explorer)?

    I recently had to reset my Internet Explorer settings to remove Conduit Search hijacker. This stopped explorer7fixes.dll from working in File Explorer, because it was loaded into IE as an 'addon'. Now I cannot get it to work no matter how much I unregister and re-register the Explorer7Fixes. version of the .dll, and this is even after restarting explorer.exe/restarting/shutting down.

    System Restore fixed this problem for me the last time it happened (I restored back to a time when explorer7fixes.dll was working), but it appears that won't work this time as my restore points are corrupted. Gives the error code (0x81000201)

    Can anyone help with this?

    I managed to fix the .dll problem without needing System Restore (the way to fix it is to open CCleaner>Tools>Startup and enable Helper/Explorer7Fixes BHO Class. This will work even though there is no longer any record of the 'addon' in IE after resetting IE to default, say, if I get Conduit/Delta Search hijacker again.)

    However I'm still worried that System Restore doesn't seem to work at the moment...

No System Restore Points
Just thought I'd do a system restore point to get over a problem in another thread here and - there aren't any! Shouldn't windows automatically make them? I've had this problem for a year with windows 8 (now 8.1) and I think I even had it with 7. Before that it never seemed to be a problem.

Auto System Restore points not created
I have used System Restore in Windows 7 to automatically create restore points, but not so in Windows 8 or 8.1. I configured TASKSCHD.MSC for a restore point to be created at 11 pm weekly, but not dice. I just changed the time to create a SR point daily at 7:15 AM to see if a SR point would be...

System Restore Points not being created (no dual boot)
I am not being lazy, I have sifted through pages and pages of posts about this problem and have yet to find anything that does not either involve dual boot or some complex solution. I am running a cleanly installed standalone Windows 8 Pro X64 system which is not creating system restore points...

No System Restore points
I've been running Windows 8 since 10/27 and just noticed there were no System Restore points. Doesn't Windows 8 automatically create them when a significant event occurs, like Windows Update? I created one manually but would like to see Win 8 create them.
