Start-->Programs-->Accessories-->System Tools-->Schedules Tasks-->Add a Task Wizard.

System Restore in in the list of available tasks....customize the schedule.

Just make sure that you clean out the old restore points often or you will quickly fill up the HD - then you will be wondering, "Now why is my hard drive full?".

System Restore defaults to 12% of hard drive space. With hard drives as large as they are now, there's no need to have it set this high. 1200 - 1500 MB is adequate, unless you like having a lot of restore points.

Recycle Bin is another one that defaults to 10% of hard drive space. Moving the slider back to 2% - 3% is adequate.

I tryed this and for some reason it is not working. It keeps saying permission denied. (I'm the admin too.)
