That post was from May 2008 and says the following:

There are two simple methods to get rid of this problem: either you download the latest version of the application (which, by the way, was released today for both Home and Professional editions) or you disable the Avast self-protection

Thanks Eric.

But that same problem is described by Avast users last month, so apparently that upgrade didn't completely resolve this issue.

Thanks for that Eliuri

I suspect it may have been Avast.  Since  uninstalling it I have checked the restore function on both of my machines and they work ok.  The Microsoft Security Essentials has fairly good reports and seems ok at the minute.  I may give Avast another go at some other time with the recommended tweak. :)

Thanks debroos:

Curious if it will do the trick for you, as I'm considering that very combo: Comodo Firewall and Avast!

Trying to get as clearer a sense of this before uninstalling my present security suite because of this very issue.

=======================

Were you and her using just the  Comodo Firewall in CIS or the Comodo FW+AV?

Like i said in my previous posts its with the AV, thinks its still problem with sfi.dat. i just made the above post  because there was talk that Avast caused the problem.

No, the talk was that Avast caused the problem because the user who had the issue wasn't using the AV in CIS. The user was saying that a firewall only installation of CIS also caused system restore issues, which wasn't the case. The problem in this instance was Avast.

I was think about comodo bugs today and decided to check my system restore again since am now running a new computer. And it actually went without a hitch. Its strange, Like Heffed mentioned, that only some circumstances prevent system restore from running.

Cheers
