    You can also try to run this via CMD as admin:

    reg delete "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows NT\SystemRestore" /v "DisableSR" /f
    reg delete "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows NT\SystemRestore" /v "DisableConfig" /f
    reg add "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\SPP\Clients" /v " {09F7EDC5-294E-4180-AF6A-FB0E6A0E9513}" /t REG_MULTI_SZ /d "1" /f

    Solved


    Hi Shawn,
    Couldn't locate in the GPSettings.

    TairikuOkami,
    Couldn't find the 2 keys to delete so I added the last key.

    I don't know where you found this but it worked.

    Noticed it wasn't working when I tried to create an RP prior to installing the new Build 10532

    Thanks to both

    Pete

    All W-10


    Just checked my work laptop with W-10 and found the same thing.
    Adding that Reg key also fixed it.

    TairikuOkami,
    The first 2 keys were not found on this PC also.

    Glad it worked out, took me some time to find the key hidden in the depths of the internet.

    Hi,

    This looks promising but I tried opening up CMD as admin (and it could not find the two entries to delete, as others above have experienced) but when I cut/paste and pressed 'enter' for the third command, it came back saying 'ERROR: Access is denied'.

    The prompt is 'C: \Windows\system32>' - is that right and if not how do I change that?

    As a user of PCs for 30 years, Windows 10 makes we want to cry. So frustrating - like an incomplete beta and just, broken.

    Sussed it, I had to find CMD in 'apps' and right click, choose 'run as administrator'. Then it accepted that key.

    I can now turn on System Restore.

    Thanks a lot!
