    @David,
    No offend but What's you have shown there is incorrect and I know in the past you did Take over the ownership of this folder but this is wrong and open a big security hole that virus can sneak in there and infect it.
    I deleted it & restarted & got this---

    @David,
    Very good. And since I know you are using Macrium to do your backup, you don't really need to turn on the System Restore. I never use it and never will. One less resource to slow down my PC, less disk space. In addition, as said earlier, System Restore is not reliable and often corrupted. It is very good point that you advise people to always use Macrium to do the backup.
    Cheers !!!

    System Restore never worked good for me.
    Macrium does work good.

    Take ownership of the folder & right click it & choose Delete from the menu.

    Restart.

    All done.

    Take Ownership - Add to Context Menu in Windows 8

    Hello,
    I can't delete the folder when Windows is running, can I delete it from cmd at boot, does it will cause Windows to stop working?

    Give this a try:

    Reset the Repository. To do so follows these steps:
    1. Boot into Safe Mode without networking and open a command prompt as administrator.
    2. Now Type net stop winmgmt and hit Enter. This will stop the Windows Management Instrumentation Service
    3. Next go to C:\Windows\System32\wbem and rename the repository folder to repositoryold
    4. Restart.

    Again open a command prompt as administrator, type net stop winmgmt and hit Enter.Next type winmgmt /resetRepository and hit Enter.Restart.Now see if you can create a System Restore Point manually.

    Hello,
    Already try it, still can't create restore point. I think because of the permissions and owner problem.
