    Many thanks for that (shucks I am a vistax64.com member as well!). I
    was worried about SP1, so I will slipstream a new disk and do this
    sometime in the near future.

    I have Rollback Rx installed, so I am covered for restore points and
    have made a full backup with their disk cloner. I just hope it is not
    Snapshot Rx that has broken this? If anyone has this on an x64 system,
    I would love to know. Snapshot Tech guys are checking it out in a
    trial, these guys are super helpful and fast reply times.

    That software certainly reads like it would replace System Restore, so I can
    see where it would likely disable it to avoid conflicts, though there's
    nothing specific in their documentation to say so.

    Also, unlike XP, you can't slipstream SP1 with an "original" Vista disk.

    Hi Frenchy,

    Paul's right, try Repair install first. If it doesn't work, you can
    save yourself a lot of pain by backing up your data and doing a clean
    reinstall - it always does the trick.

    I'd like to know what causes this weird behaviour, though

    Good Luck

    Thanks, unfortunately nothing there helped. I thought perhaps the
    'Reset Repository' may help, but it didn't. Note in your instructions
    after Repositoryold, I suspect you meant to put RESTART IN SAFE MODE
    again, as if you just reboot, you can't easily stop Winmgmt service as
    others are depending on it

    Also further up in your Tutorial you say to make sure VSS is set to
    Auto, that is contrary to Microsoft KB article. Leaving it in MANUAL
    and making sure it is started is fine
