Hello @pozso123 ,

Antivirus software usually dont interfere with system restore points since most of the big mainstream software (including malwarebytes) makes a restore point incase your system breaks during the install, usually, it might just be a corrupted restore point. Have you tried booting into safe mode and restoring the restore point from there?

Windows System Restore doesn’t save files or folders, instead focusing on the current state of your OS. This includes saving registry settings, system information, and OS state. System Restore simply rolls back your Windows 7 PC to a previous state that is either automatically or manually created at key points of usage.

System Restore  - Windows 7 from the Control Panel
click System Restore > Control Panel > Back up your computer > Recover system settings on your computer > Click (Open System Restore) >
It’ll take a few moments for Windows 7 to open System Restore > If you click “Choose a different restore point,” you’ll be given the option to choose another time frame to restore > You’ll be given a list of the reasons why a restore point was created. In this case, we have several drivers that were installed along with a system initiated restore point.

Clicking “Scan for affected programs” to let System Restore try and locate issues on your computer that can be potentially fixed by a restore > You’ll be shown restore points that can be deleted; you’ll also be shown points tat might need to be restored because something went wrong during the process

You can click on any of these points to use them as your restore point > Once you’ve chosen the restore point you want to restore, you’ll be able to confirm where it’ll be restored to – in most cases, that’ll be your primary drive where the Windows OS resides – and you can click “Finish” to start the restore process.
The restore process will restart your computer and begin to overwrite your current OS with the restore point.

Note: This is how you can detect a problem with a restore point and can fix it easily. You can restore only the OS previous setting, not the complete data. For that, you need to create a ghost or shadow of the window.
