    Despite the fact that System Writer is missing from "vssadmin list
    writers", System Restore points are successfully created and non-system
    file Shadow Copies are also being created.

    However, the most recent attempt to restore one of these points failed
    without explanation. Fortunately, I image the partitions weekly with
    Norton Save & Restore.

    The other 6 Writers are functioning normally.

    The following Application Log error is generated every time "vssadmin
    list writers" is executed on Vista Ultimate.

    Source: CAPI2

    Event ID: 513

    Cryptographic Services failed while processing the OnIdentity()
    call in the System
    Writer Object.

    AddCoreCsiFiles : RtlConvertNtFilePathToWin32Path() failed.

    System Error:
    0xC0000039 (unresolvable).

    %systemdrive%\Windows\Registration ACLs are correct per

    Thanks in advance.
