    Windows 7: Error Code: 0x80042306, 0x80042308, System Restore will not work

    I have recently upgraded my system from windows vista to window 7 Ultimate 64 bit. I have not made any changes to my hardware or software prior to installing windows 7. Today morning when I try to perform system restore due to some reason, I found that system restore did not work. And I get this error code: 0x80042306, 0x80042308. I am using Dell XPS. I did not understand what went wrong. Does anyone have any idea about this error code please let me know as soon as possible. Your suggestion would be appreciated.

    I will recommend you to try disabling all the security software including firewall and anti-virus. And see if the problem persists. If it does not in that case the trouble can be with one of the security software. Errors 0x80042306 frequently take place at what time there is a third party application interfering while performing a System Restore. Therefore I would recommend you to perform a System Restore in Safe Mode furthermore verify if the problem persists. To run your system in safe mode, reboot the system and press F8 and select to start your computer in safe mode.

    If it functions in Safe Mode, in that case there is a third party application which is causing the problem to happen, therefore, I would recommend you to set your PC in a Clean Boot State. Placing your system in clean boot state assists to make out if any third party software or else startup items are causing the problem. If yes, you might go forward and disable or else uninstall the same.You can follow the below methods to perform a clean boot. You will need to log on using administrator right and in the start search box type msconfig.exe and press enter. Now click option Selective startup on the General tab as well as after that unmark the startup items check box. Place a tick mark in front of Hide all Microsoft services on the services tab and after that Click Disable all. Now finally reboot your system to save the changes.

    For System Restore Error Message 0x80042308, I would recommend you to perform a System File Checker (SFC) scan on your PC. System File Checker will scan all your system files as well as replaces corrupted files on your system. You can follow the procedure to run the sfc/scan. Go to start menu and click on all programs/ accessories and right click on command prompt and after that click run as administrator. This will open elevated command prompt. You will be ask to enter the administrator password. In the command prompt type sfs/scannow. The sfc /scannow command will scan all system files as well as replaces inaccurate versions by means of correct Microsoft versions.
