No it didnt create by itself again and thanks to you for all your help. I would work on hotfixes ,my pc is old i dont think it can run windows 10 that good.

Im puzzled about that system restore point getting deleted automatically.

At this point I think a re-install would be best. But you would need to find the license key.

It could be a misconfigured Windows install, and you'll need the key anyways to install SP1.

How you got cryptomining malware on your PC is unknown. But to prevent it and further malware in the future, I would sincerely recommend using Malwarebytes + Emsisoft Anti-Malware. I have a review of EAM here on PCHF.

Getting error while system restore because of volume shadow copy service not getting started.

Sorry for the delay @Abhishek.

Seeing as your Windows is out of date, perhaps a new install of W10 is in order? What are the specs of your PC? W10 provides much better security, and if you go this route, I can suggest a good method of protecting your PC from future threats.

In this case, you'd want to install SP1. Almost all software nowadays requires at least W7 SP1.

The Volume Shadow error is likely due to a corrupt Windows install.

I realised that conhost.exe is getting generated again, and just upgrading to sp1 won't work. I'm gonna install windows in my system again.

If you're going to go that route, back up important documents and everything first. A fresh install will wipe everything off the drive.

Then install W7, then SP1, then all the updates.
