Default Re:


The reason why the system restore points are failing is because a critical change has occured between the time of the restore points and now. But critical in the sense of significant change, rather than problematic change. So there is an important system change which is imperative, which cannot be cycled back.

Unfortunately, this kicks restoring out of the option. You may have dead registry keys in your system's registry, which need clearing. Perhaps you should contact EA Games .
