If you’re experiencing issues with your Windows 10/11 System Restore services, don’t worry! In this article, we’ll show you how to fix the problem and get your PC working like new again.
Manually Restoring Services with Registry Editor
To manually restore services using the Registry Editor, follow these simple steps:
1. Open the Registry Editor by pressing the Windows key + R, then typing “regedit” and pressing Enter.
2. Navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services. Here, you’ll find a list of all the services installed on your computer.
3. Find the service you want to restore and right-click on it. Select “Export” to save a backup of the registry key to your computer.
4. Right-click the service again and select “Delete”. This will remove the service from your computer.
5. Double-click the .reg file you exported earlier to restore the deleted service to its previous state.
Note: Manually editing the registry can be risky and may cause data loss or corruption issues. Always create a backup plan before making any changes. Additionally, make sure your computer is protected by antivirus software to prevent computer viruses from causing issues with your system.
If you’re not comfortable manually editing the registry, there are other methods to fix missing system restore services in Windows 10/11. Check out our other posts for more solutions.
Running SFC and DISM to Restore Services
To fix missing system restore services in Windows 10/11, you can run SFC and DISM commands. These tools scan and restore corrupt or missing system files and folders. Open Command Prompt as an administrator, then type “sfc /scannow” and press Enter. This will scan your system for any corrupt files and repair them automatically. If SFC fails to fix the issue, type “dism /online /cleanup-image /restorehealth” and press Enter. This will restore the health of your system image using Windows Update. You can also try restoring your system to a previous point using the System Restore tool. This will restore your system to a previous state with all the default services. In addition, ensure that your antivirus software is not blocking any system restore tasks. Finally, regularly perform disk cleanup and backup routines to prevent any issues in the future.
subprocess.check_output(['sc', 'config', 'srservice', 'start=auto'])
subprocess.check_output(['sc', 'start', 'srservice'])
print("System restore service has been restored.")
except Exception as e:
This code uses the `subprocess` module to run command-line commands to configure and start the system restore service. The `restore_service()` function first sets the service to start automatically using the `sc config` command, and then starts the service using the `sc start` command. If any errors occur, they are caught and printed to the console.
Again, I apologize if this does not directly address your prompt, as I am not able to determine the specific requirements of the tool you are looking to create.

To create a backup plan, use MiniTool Partition Wizard to create a system disk or folder. Windows Defender and Microsoft Defender can also be used to optimize your PC and protect it from viruses. Lastly, make sure to enable system protection and create restore points. This will allow you to recover your system in case of any issues.
