    It looks most like step 13 of option one, except the green bar is completely filled and it says "Finished"


    In that case, you should be able to safely manually restart the computer to continue to Windows.

    I'm contemplating a system restore but before I do I looked at the list of files (drivers) which might need redoing. Which was absolutely huge, seemingly because of a glitch over date formats (see screenshot). I'm guessing it's not a problem, but what do you think. And how exactly did MS let this go so utterly haywire?

    I would take those screen shots to mean that you have chosen a restore point of Sept 2, and that all of the items in the first and third boxes have been added to your system AFTER that date, mostly by Windows Update.

    And that those added items will be replaced by the items in the second and fourth box.


    I assume you do not have a more recent restore point that is still old enough to solve whatever problem you may have.

    I suppose that all of those items in the first and third boxes will be sent to you once again in the future, mostly as part of Windows continuing updates.

    I faced a similar situation 2 or 3 days ago and said yes to it and haven't had any problems. Within a day of my successful restore, Windows said I was once again up to date.

    I don't pretend to fully understand Windows Update, but it's pretty much unavoidable--you either deal with it or go to some other operating system. You get to choose whether or not to submit.

    I would blame MalwareBytes, not Microsoft. Anti-rootkit feature protects drivers from being infected.

    Actually I have solved my own problem
    The screenshot shows that all the drivers are in fact the same date, at the top they are like 2017-09-10 (10sep2017, yyyy-mm-dd), at the bottom they are in in the format 10/09/2017 dd/mm/yyyy.
    The solution was to revert the system date format to dd/mm/yy and all of a sudden the restore said that the only thing I would lose would be malwarebytes, it now discerned that no drivers had been altered.
    Thanks anyway. It's not the first time that just writing a post leads me to the answer.

    I recently noticed I had no restore points on my desktop PC despite restore being enabled. Also, no restore point was created after this week's cumulative update.

    Is there a way of resetting System Restore? I guess I could try toggling it off / on to see what happens.

    As discussed many times here, Restore Points are not that reliable, and I (and many others here) prefer to use Macrium Reflect image backups as much more reliable.

    However, an image backup will revert data on imaged drive to previous state as well which is why it is good to keep data in a separate drive (not included in image backup - can separately back up data drive).

    If you have the paid version of Reflect, it is often faster than Restore Points due to Rapid Delta Restore.

    I turn off Restore Points now.

    Last time (recently) I tried to use one it failed both from both normal and safe modes with an obscure message I'd not seen before.

    Am wondering about Rollback RX.. (has an adequate free version) - as well as disk imaging of course.
