Check the restore points
All the restore points saved by the system need not be good ones. Some of them will be infected ones or might represent some other faulty conditions. The restore points created by the system might be malware infected one and if you restore the system to these restore points, these malwares will enter into this new stage also.

Ensure hard drive capacity

The normal amount of free space needed to do the restoring is 200MB. The hard drive with below this free space capacity will not let you complete the restoring process. So check the hard drive properly before the restoring process. If the hard drive does not contain the needed space, free up more space and then do the restoring.
If you are restoring the system while connecting any other additional peripherals, you need to disable them before restoring. If you do the restoring then, these additional peripherals also will be listed to the restore items. More memory will be needed in this case and this is time consuming. So remove all such additional peripherals from the system during the restoring.
