I tried solution 1 with the following result: Windows cannot create a shadow copy due to internal error in other system components. For more information view the event log. (0x81000109)That sounds scary to me!

I can now left click on the Windows Icon and get a response. This was through Classic Shell.
However I am still unable to create a restore point. Not a problem just now but is likely to be at some time in the future.
