    System restore that is native to Windows 10 it brings you back to a previous time when the computer was working properly the error message says that an antivirus program prohibited the function from working
    Are you talking about the system restore points or the Recovery option to reset your PC either by "Keep my files" or "Remove everything", which is a reinstall of the OS?

    I'm almost certain the OP is talking about Restore Points. But they will have to answer that.

    I think that your problem is not related with mbam but with Defender. Try to restore with Defender off (PC not connected with internet) or try to restore in safe mode.

    While you are waiting for PiKo, I think you posted you have restored from a Macrium image. If so, testing that restore point is a mute point. You would have to create another one just to test if you could restore it. I'd take another Macrium first, just in case the Restore Point does anything nasty.

    See for starting up in safe mode the tutorial: Boot into Safe Mode on Windows 10 | Windows 10 Tutorials
    Then perform restore. That worked for me.

    For System Restore to operate reliably, try booting from w10 installation media and invoke it from there.

    You have Macrium. You are using Macrium. Restore Points are not as reliable or efficient or versatile, and as you can see, a lot more trouble to deal with, if you can.

    Why not just stop trying to use them. Dump them. Stick with Macrium. It works. Well. Each time.

    Others may disagree at length, but I just had to say this.......

    I think I may keep a restore point or 2 and if necessary, try it in safe mode which I know how to do.
    I always have current multiple Macrium images handy in two separate drives.

    BTW, and for my education, to invoke system restore from the installation stick would I insert it instead of booting off of it then go into setup and ..........now I need help.
