comment Windows 7 — Should we forget defragmentation?
@David Schwartz: The OP asked about "corrupted/incomplete VSS images meaning corrupted/incomplete restore points." Defragmentation does not cause any corruption of existing VSS images. It may, however, trigger the creation of a new snapshot -- which may cause the oldest snapshot to be deleted if you've already hit the limit on VSS disk space usage. If you absolutely must preserve the snapshot taken on the day you installed Windows, then turning off defrag will not achieve this, because just using the computer might evict the oldest snapshot. You need to move the snapshots off the disk.

comment Windows 7 — Should we forget defragmentation?
As explained in the documentation for Diskeeper: "When the VSS defragmentation option is enabled, Diskeeper uses proprietary defragmentation engines to help reduce the chance of the defragmentation operation causing new VSS snapshots from being created, thus potentially preventing older snapshots from being purged. In order to do this, the VSS defragmentation engines use more conservative file movement algorithms, which can result in slightly less thorough defragmentation of the volume."

After rollback, the problem may recur because of automatic driver installation. Blocking display drivers from installing will lock down your system in the usable state: superuser.com/a/525431/43454

Sounds like some kind of timeout. Could it be a certificate issue?
