Here is the error message:
System Restore did not complete successfully. Your computer's system files and settings were not changed.
System Restore failed while restoring the directory from the restore point.
An unspecified error occurred during System Restore. (0x80070091)
What I've tried so far:
chkdsk /f /r C: (didn't work)
tried running in safe mode the system restore (didn't work)
tried with another system restore point (didn't work)

This happened to me after I updated my Lenovo's drivers and had issues with driver power states. I was able to perform a restore by doing the following:
Boot into command line mode (search Advanced Startup in windows settings)
cd C:\Program Files
attrib WindowsApps -h this removed the hidden attribute
rename WindowsApps WindowsApps-renamed
restore the system to the desired restore point
reboot normally or
continue to windows
When the restore is complete, a previous version of
WindowsApps will have been restored.
To then go back and delete
a to open an Administrator Command Prompt
cd C:\Program Files
takeown /f WindowsApps-renamed
rmdir WindowsApps-renamed /S
