Could you check in device manager to see if any yellow exclamation marks are there

Warning This fix is only relevant for this system and no other, using on another computer may cause problems

Be advised that when the fix commences it will shut down all running processes and you may lose the desktop and icons, they will return on reboot

If you have Malwarebytes 1.6 or better installed please disable it for the duration of this run

Run OTL
  • Under the Custom Scans/Fixes box at the bottom, paste in the following

With a dual boot system (which I have) System Restore doesn't function fully. You can create a restore point but if you shut down, you lose it. Whether you can create a restore point and go back to it if you don't shut down I just don't know.
This will eliminate your WIN 7? restore points from being deleted when you boot into XP. Works for both Vista or Win 7 and any earlier Windows OS. Use Method 1.

Hi. I did have a problem just this afternoon when I discovered my Realtek HD Audio wasn't recognized. I went into Device Manager and it had an exclamation mark by it. I subsequently got the sound back. I PM'd you today regarding current status.
Also, how do I disable MBAM (free)?
Again, regarding the latest fix, I can't  create restore point.
Presume quote points after [emptytemp]?
Please advise before I proceed anything else, thanks.

Thank you for that...something no-one else has mentioned. Trouble is it may solve the problem for W7 but still leaves XP out in the cold (unless I've misunderstood).
Having read the microsoft article again, I believe this is for partition drives rather than totally separate drives.

XP is not the issue as far as it's restore points are concerned. The problem lies in the way XP creates it's restore points; it will delete those in any other OS present. It's a bug in XP that Microsoft chose not to fix.

Fix works fine when each OS is installed on a separate drive. That is how my dual boot is set up.

Thank you for that....I'll have a look at it again but would I then be able to retain my SR points for XP? Up to now I've always lost them on both XP and W7. .
