Since yesterday my computer crashes with a bluescreen 0x00000050 as soon as I do something with the system restore. For example (tried to translate from german to english so the exact programname could be different):

  • Windows system settings/System and Safety/System/Computersafety and when I try to change to the tab Computersafety it gives me the bluescreen.
  • CCleaner->Tools/Systemrestore - shows me the new tab short but
    without a restore point but results after 1-2 seconds in the same
  • Cobian Backup Boletus-> Start a backup task with the enabled option
    "Use Volume Shadow Copy" results with this bluescreen.
  • Leaving the computer for some minutes in idle results in a bluescreen (maybe the system tries to create a resore point or the cobian
    backup starts or something like this)
  • Installing a new driver results in a bluescreen because it tries to
    create a new restore point before installing the driver

The harddisk is checked with chkdsk and it found no errors. Ram is checked with Memtest+ without any error.

Minidump result:

Invalid system memory was referenced.  This cannot be protected by try-except,
it must be protected by a Probe.  Typically the address is just plain bad or it
is pointing at freed memory.
Arg1: fffff981155026a8, memory referenced.
Arg2: 0000000000000000, value 0 = read operation, 1 = write operation.

I disabled the Cobian backup program and disabled the system restore with the help of Windows PowerShell (disable-computerrestore -drive "C:\") and everything works fine for now. But I want the system restore/volume shadow copy back. What can I do?

Operating system is Windows 7 Professional 64bit.

I managed to solve this question myself.

I could not answer my own questions at this time because I had to less points or so. – hitzi Jan 25 '13 at 8:53

In a similar situation, I solved the problem by doing a clean reinstallation of Win 7:

I downloaded the Knoppix CD (not the DVD version, as I just wanted to boot to Linux) and deleted the SYSTEM VOLUME INFORMATION directory.

I recreated the same volume, so it was present in Windows after the reboot. I then rebooted WIN 7 and created a new restore point. As a test, I restored to this point and it all worked fine.

It looks like there was a problem with some of the automatic created restore point files. I booted with Knoppix and removed everything from "System Volume Information" to a backup directory so I had a empty "System Volume Information" folder. Reboot to Windows and everything is working fine again with the System Volume Shadow service and the system restore.
