    System Restore Fails Error 0x80070005

    So I try to restore any point and get an error:

    I have turned off Malwarebytes and SuperAntiSpyware.

    I also did a sfc /scannow with no integrity violations.

    Running Windows 10 Pro 64bit... Any suggestions?

    Try turning off User Account Control.
    UAC might interfere with a system restore.

    thanks. a reboot solved it. I think there was a cumulative update that ran and a reboot was waiting. I was gettign ready to install the latest nvidia driver and wanted to to a restore checkpoint first and that is when I saw it was not working. I did a reboot and system restore was fine.

    Hi, the error suggests a conflicting program (e.g. AV).
    However this may not necessarily be so.
    Backup and system restore error 0x80080005 0x80070005 - Microsoft Community

    I found sthg like turning off system restore (to remove any existing restore points), then stopping Volume Shadow Copy service and restarting it helped.
