    While struggling with Applicationn hung problems I have discovered that the
    following error has frequently been reported (some 400 times) on my system
    since June 11, 2008:

    "Failed to create restore point on volume (Process =
    C:\Windows\system32\rundll32.exe /d srrstr.dll,ExecuteScheduledSPPCreation;
    Descripton = Scheduled Checkpoint; Hr = 0x80070422)."

    (The parameters have varied)

    I have followed the various tracks Event Viewer suggestions but am no more
    the wiser.

    Can somebody enlighten me on what is going on and what I can do about it?

    (There is no apparent correlation between this error events and the
    Applicaction hung events)

    (In case this information is important I should add that my harddisk is
    actually split into two partitions visible by Vista; the C: drive which is
    named OS and a D: drive which is named RECOVERY with 5,50 GB free space out
    of 9,99 GB.)

    Click the Start Orb...type system...then click on System in the menu that
    appears in the list.
    In the window that System Protection....make sure in
    available disk...C has a check mark.

    That malware infection is in case extremely well hidden, it didn't show up
    in any of my protection features during the full scans I did last night.

    However I looked up the web-page in your link.

    The easiest suggestion to try out first was to go to "Start" > "Control
    Panel" > "Administrative Tools" > "Services", but I found no "System Restore
    Service" (or similar) at all.

    Next I went to "Start" > "Computer" > "Properties" > "System Protection"
    where I found three "Available Disks" listed, all of which had "None" for
    "Most recent restore point":
    OS (C:) (System)
    OS (C:) (Missing)

    Only the last one was checked, and I just don't understand the note
    "Missing" or why I have two C: disks at all. Maybe the fact that this third
    disk has an icon different from the two others means something?

    Can the fact that I have a remote USB disk for backup purposes (Using
    Acronis) have anything to do with this, this disk is normally not conneted.

    I checked the OS (C:) (System) disk and clicked "Create" (restore point
    right now), this operation was successful both according to a messagebox
    showing up and also to "none" for "Most recent restore point" becoming
    replaced by a timestamp.

    My Event Viewer did not report any problem this time.

    So what now? I still feel being in the dark.

    I think you are on to something.
    I don't use acronis...but it has made the usb drive the system restore
    Put a check in the first C drive listing....see if it takes...even after
    using the usb backup.

    Check the box next to C: system. Uncheck the one next to C: missing.
    Did you reinstall Vista at anytime?

    Why be such an @$#. I didn't see your response before I posted or I wouldn't
    have. I was in the middle of resposonding when I had to leave for a while.
    Sorry, but I'm sure the same answer from two people didn't really hurt.

    I checked the box next to C:(System) before requesting an immediate restore
    At this time both boxes were checked, but i did not receive any error
    incident report. However, a timestamp was only provided against the
    (System), not againat the (Missing).

    I have never reinstalled Vista, only had the automatic updates from

    System files can't be modified by malware unless the user explicitly allows
    it, or misguidedly disables uac - basically meaning that protected system
    files that are altered by malware boil back to being the fault of the user,
    not the operating system. However, the above command from an elevated
    command prompt checks the integrity of the system file set against what it
    should be and replaces those that do not match or are corrupted.
