    To fix this issue,open the Task Manager and choose the Process Tab. Now move to the bottom part and click on "Show Processes from all users". It can ask for confirmation so don't hesitate to confirm it. Try to find "rstrui.exe" process in the Image Name. After finding it,right click on that process and click on "End process" option. Once done,click on "End Process" and you are done.

    To get the solution for the above problem follow these

    First of all press windows key+R and type taskmgr and click OK

    Now tap on APPLICATIONS tab then now choose SYSTEM RESTORE from the applications list ....and right click on it ...and select END TASK option from the pop up

    After that it will be stopped ....and if the SYSTEM RESTORE is not available in the applications list ....simply tap on PROCESSES tab

    Find the RSTRUI.EXE option .... and click the END PROCESS button ..... that is
