1: System Restore Error 0x80042318__2: Windows Media Player 11 Will not open__3: Internet Explorer 8 Freezes as soon as opened.

Problem:
I have these three program Issues after Reinstallation of Windows Vista and attempted (mostly unsuccessful) use of Windows Easy Transfer to move and reinstall my programs and files.
My computer was having some startup issues before, (it would almost always
give me the blue screen at startup and go into the startup repair).
The Startup repair would not fix anything and just waste about 20 minutes of my time.
Eventually it would not even load at all and startup repair wasn't helping so I finally decided to reinstall
Windows Vista.
This worked perfectly until I stupidly decided to try and use Windows easy transfer to hopefully "move" my programs over to this new copy of Windows Vista.

So now my issues are: Windows Media Player 11 will not open at all.
I can not see thumbnails of videos that would open with Windows Vista either.
Oddly enough though I can use Windows Media Center just fine.
I also have the Quicktime player installed and these
seem to work just fine.
This hasn't been disastrous but mainly an annoyance.
I've been using VLC player to handle most of my videos just fine, but liked using WMP before.

Secondly: I cannot create any restore points at all.
Any time I try I get this error message:
"The restore point could not be created for the following reason:
An error was detected in the Volume Shadow Copy Service (VSS).
The problem occurred while trying to contact VSS writers.
Please verify that the Event System service and the VSS service are running and check for associated errors in the event logs.
(Ox80042318)
Please try again."

Lastly, for some reason after the transfer, possibly after Internet Explorer automatically updated it will completely freeze when I open it.
It gives me the prompt to open the previously crashed session, and if I attempt that or close the dialog box to just
open the home page, it will completely freeze, even the blue loading circle beside the tab name.
Thankfully I have Firefox and Google Chrome installed, both work just fine.

Any help is greatly appreciated.
I'm not entirely fretting over IE8 and WMP 11 but I would really feel less stressed if I know that I have a System Restore Point in case my previous issues start to happen again.

Here's my system specs, in case that is in any way helpful.

Dell Studio 1535 Laptop
Windows Vista Home Premium 32 bit
Service Pack 2 Recently Reinstalled
Intel Core 2 Duo Processor 4 Ghz
3 GB Ram
4.0 Windows Experience Index/Rating

Major thanks in advance to anyone that can give any little glimmer of help.
I've tried searching for these issues online and found no help.
My next stop is Dell Tech support (..
not looking forward to it)!
Solution to 1: System Restore Error 0x80042318__2: Windows Media Player 11 Will not open__3: Internet Explorer 8 Freezes as soon as opened.:
Hi,
All these might be related and there might be corrupted system files on your computer that might behind this behaviour and error messages.
Before trying SFC scan, let perform clean boot.
You may try doing a Clean boot.
To help troubleshoot error messages and other issues, you can start Windows Vista by using a minimal set of drivers and startup programs.
This kind of startup is known as a "clean boot." A clean boot helps eliminate
software conflicts.
After starting the computer,follow the steps in the article: “How to perform clean boot”.
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/929135
   
Note: Please ensure that the computer is set to start as usual by following the step 7 from the article
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/929135
 
If the above doesn’t help try and use the System File Checker tool (SFC.exe) to check and fix system corrupted files. 
To do this, follow these steps:
Steps to perform SFC scan
1.
Click the Start button
2.
From the Start Menu, Click All programs followed by Accessories
3.
In the Accessories menu, Right Click on the Command Prompt option
4.
From the drop down menu that appears, Click on the 'Run as administrator' option
5.
If you have the User Account Control (UAC) enabled you will be asked for authorization prior to the command prompt opening.
You may simply need to press the Continue button if you are the administrator or insert the administrator password
etc.
6.
In the Command prompt window, type: sfc /scannow and then press Enter
7.
A message will appear stating that 'the system scan will begin'
8.
Be patient because the scan may take some time
9.
If any files need any replacement SFC will replace them.
You may be asked to insert your Vista DVD for this process to continue
10.
If everything is okay you should, after the scan, see the following message "Windows resource protection did not find any integrity violations"
11.
After the scan has completed, Close the command prompt window restart the computer and check.

Use the Sfc tool to repair - 1: System Restore Error 0x80042318__2: Windows Media Player 11 Will not open__3: Internet Explorer 8 Freezes as soon as opened.


sfc is a utility in Windows that allows users to scan for corruptions in Windows system files and restore corrupted files. This article describes how to run the System File Checker tool (SFC.exe) to scan your system files and to repair missing or corrupted system files. If a Windows Resource Protection (WRP) file is missing or is corrupted, Windows may not behave as expected. For example, some Windows functions may not work, or Windows may crash.

If You are Running Windows 8.1 or Windows 8

  • Open an elevated command prompt. To do this, follow these steps:
  • Swipe in from the right edge of the screen, and then tap Search. Or, if you are using a mouse, point to the lower-right corner of the screen, and then click Search. Type Command Prompt in the Search box, right-click Command Prompt, and then click Run as administrator. If you are prompted for an administrator password or for a confirmation, type the password, or click Allow.

Windows vista, Windows 7, or Windows 10

  • To do this, click Start, type Command Prompt or cmd in the Search box, right-click Command Prompt, and then click Run as administrator. If you are prompted for an administrator password or for a confirmation, type the password, or press Allow.
  • At the command prompt, type the following command, and then press ENTER:
  • sfc /scannow
  • The sfc /scannow command will scan all protected system files, and replace corrupted files with a cached copy that is located in a compressed folder at %WinDir%\System32\dllcache.
  • The %WinDir% placeholder represents the Windows operating system folder. For example, C:\Windows.
  • Attention please: Don't close this Command Prompt window until the verification is 100% complete. The scan results will be shown when the scan is finished.
After the process is finished, you may receive one of the following messages:
  • Windows Resource Protection found corrupt files and successfully repaired them. Details are included in the CBS.Log %WinDir%\Logs\CBS\CBS.log.
