    Strange that the restore didn’t work within safe mode. The error message points to anti virus software interfering. Do you have Malwarebytes or another anti malware program?
    Also try restoring from installation media:
    Place the Windows 10 installation media on your computer.
    Start your system from the Windows Installation Media. To do that, enter BIOS settings and at Boot Order setting, set the CD/DVD (or the USB if you have created a USB media) as first boot device. Then Save & Exit BIOS Setup.

    Select the Language to install, Time/Currency format and Keyboard input method and press Next.
    Choose Repair your computer.

    Then choose Troubleshoot > Advanced Options > System Restore.

    Odd that I went through this very same System Restore failure with exactly same error message only a few hours ago.

    In my case, it was due to the self-protection module in Malwarebytes.

    So if you have Malwarebytes installed, and get this error, follow these instructions at Malwarebytes Support. I was then able to run SR successfully after 3 such failures"

    Good luck with this. Was very exasperating until I discovered the cause

    Thank you very much!
    I uninstalled malwarebytes and it worked without an error.

    You're very welcome, Crusher:

    I didnt find I needed to uninstall Malwarebytes for the SR to run. All I needed to do was disable its realtime and self-protection, click on "Quit Malwarebytes" down in the taskbar. And SR worked. In actuality, its probably just the "self-protection module" in Malwarebytes that needed to be unticked. Seems that in protecting itself from changes, it can hamper SR
