    System Restore does not complete


    I have never managed to get System Restore to work on Windows 8 or Windows 8.1 and always have to fall back to a backup.
    I get a message indicating error code 0x80070005 and suggesting I turn off my anti-virus.

    I have tried turning off my AV before running the restore but to no avail, and since the AV starts automatically I'm not quite sure how turning it off before the restore would help.

    I recently tried a restore from the latest recovery point and got error code 0x80070006.

    Uninstall the AV then try the restore? Reinstall after.

    There was never a problem in W7.
    Plus I don't see why it should be necessary to uninstall anything in order to restore.

    I don't see why either but it's an easy thing to do to see if it has an effect.

    Thanks.
    I'll give that a try if I need to do a restore in the future.
