Error message "restore failed 0x00000070"


Step 1:
Which operating system ?

Use an external memory device such as a DVD, flash drive or external hard drive to back up the data you need to save from your eMachines computer. Any data that isn't saved to an external source will be erased when the computer is restored to factory settings. Remove any discs that are in the optical drive and unplug the computer's peripheral devices, such as an Ethernet cable or scanner. Do not disconnect the keyboard, mouse or monitor. Click the Windows "Start" menu and choose "All Programs." Navigate to "eMachines" and choose "eMachines Recovery Management." Click the "Restore" tab. Click "Password Settings" if you have not already set a recovery password. Type a new password in the text box and click "OK." Click "Restore System to Factory Default." Type the recovery password and click "OK." Click "Next" to wipe the eMachines computer's hard drive and begin the recovery process. Select "Finish" and wait for the eMachines computer to restart. Use the series of installation prompts that appear on the screen to create a new user account for your operating system, set the system date and time, and set up your Internet settings.

I have Lenovo laptop y410 & When i open mt laptop then showing c/wins/system32/wtsapi32 there is some problem ...and i couldn't access normally if u suggest something for me that will be good!!!!!!


Hi Adhikary_pin,

If you can't run the system normally and produces error c/wins/system32/wtsapi32 it is due to corrupted operating system file. There are several ways on how to to resolve this issue, either you restore the computer using Windows system restore or put back the default factory setting on it. Here are some steps on how to use the Windows system restore.

1. Turn off the computer.

2. Reboot the computer then start tapping the F8 key.

3. Now once you're in the"Windows Advanced Boot Options Menu" select the "Safemode Option".

4. Computer will then begin to start in safemode.

5. Now click [Start] point to [All programs] go to [Accessories Folder] then [System tools] and click "System Restore".

6. On the "Welcome system restore" page, click the "Restore my computer to an earlier time" option then click next.

7. On the "Select a Restore Point page", click the most recent system restore point in the On this list, click a restore point list, and then click Next.
--> A System Restore message may appear that lists configuration changes that System Restore will make. Click OK.

8. On the Confirm Restore Point Selection page, click Next and it will restarts the computer.

--> if after these process and you're still encountering the same issue, I recommend to perform One Key Recovery to bring back the factory setting of the computer.

For the One Key Recovery procedure, kindly visit my link below. You will find helpful tips and guidelines on it.

My pc is infected, and I need to reboot it to its factory settings.


Restore your Laptop to Factory Settings is an EASY utility BUILT into Windows -- it CLEANS EVERYTHING...computer and hardware. But, it is HANDY. jQuery(document).ready(function(){ jQuery('.intro .thumbnail a:first').attr('href','http://i.ehow.com/images/a06/6v/d1/reboot-laptop-back-factory-settings-800X800.jpg'); }); Rebooting your laptop back to its factory settings restores your computer and its hardware to its original settings when it was purchased. This is helpful when troubleshooting major hardware and system performance issues. It can also be used to fix virus related issues. Restoring your computer to its factory settings is similar to performing a clean install of your operating system. Windows uses a utility program called System Restore that allows you to restore your computers settings to a specific date.
jQuery('.intro .thumbnail').each(function(i,e){ jQuery(e).find('img').one('error',function(){ jQuery(e).remove(); }); }); Difficulty: Easy Instructions
  1. Step 1 Turn on your computer, and then click on the "Start" menu icon in the bottom left-hand corner of the screen. Select "All Programs," and then click on the "Accessories" drop-down menu.
  2. Step 2 Scroll down to "System Tools," and then select the "System Restore" program and wait for it to open.
  3. Step 3 Select the "Restore My Computer to an Earlier Time" option, and then click on the "Next" button to continue. A window with a calendar will appear.
  4. Step 4 Click on the back arrow in the calendar's window. Click on the back-arrow until you have reached the date you either purchased or installed Windows on your Notebook. Select the appropriate date, and then click on the "Next" button to continue. Your computer will automatically restart.

Hi there
It has something to do with your antivirus i think, If you used the System Restore function of your computer, it is very likely to have installed an obsolete antivirus program. Almost all computers now come with an antivirus program some sort installed, and the Restore disks (or built-in System Restore) will reinstall it automatically.

Open the Windows Control Panel, check your list of installed programs, and see which antivirus program you have. Uninstall all but one of the antivirus program's.

Good luck and thanks for using Fixya!!
