    Win7 rolling back frequently

    Hi, we've rolled out Windows 7 on the network, but there's a surprising number of computers coming to me which are in the process of rolling back to a previous restore point. Given that these are all different laptops which to my knowledge haven't previously or since shown any stability issues, what could be causing them? It's happened on both laptops and desktops and across a variety of hardware.

    Given that each rollback is taking up a good chunk of a lesson (~15 minutes plus) this is obviously rather inconvenient to those affected. Event Viewer seems to be next to useless "unspecified changes to system configuration might have caused the problem" and "repaired to the corrupted files from backup".

    We've only ~120 computers in school, Win7 has only been rolled out in the last few weeks - why have I seen some 10 computers being repaired?

    Any ideas? :\

    Unclean shutdowns are what is most likely tripping it. Disable System Restore through GPO - you'll be glad you did.
