    I am creating restore points every other day just to restore computer if something gets loaded and causes a problem. How can I have the restore point automatically be created either at start up or after I'm on for 10 minutes or so. If it is done at start up, the desktop will take longer to load won't it? Thanks

    Wayne, since this is in the window 10 forum, I assume the OP wants this to run under windows 10. I installed this many years ago on my windows 7 system and later my old windows 8.1 system. The task ran flawlessly every day producing a new Restore point. But since upgrading my 8.1 system to Win 10, the task runs every day, completes with a zero completion code, but I never get a new Restore point created ? Have you tested this on Win 10, if so, did it work ?

    Thanks.

    The title on the article says

    I sent to desktop the "create restore point" from windows 10. I now have it on desktop to use anytime to create a restore point. Should be ok, Thanks for all you help.
