    In Windows 10 Home, the System Restore Points system has moved to a new level; I cannot find visual notice of the Restore Points, but I can see the, something like, "move system to a previous state" thing there, at the Settings.

    Help me here?

    Let me know if this is what you are needing help with or something else.

    To see Restore points:
    Click on the Start menu
    type create restore to search menu
    Select Create a restore point from the menu
    This will open Restore point dialog
    Click on System Restore
    Select Choose a different restore point to list all available.

    Restore points should not be created automatically. There is a registry change that can be made to perform auto restore points so I guess it is possible your registry was changed.

    Click on Start menu
    Type command to start searching
    Right click on command prompt in list and select Run Administrator
    Copy
    and Paste the command below and press enter key
    This will open the results in Notepad
    Copy and paste the Results to your reply

    Code:
    reg query "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows Defender" /s > "%userprofile%\desktop\reg.txt"
    notepad "%userprofile%\desktop\reg.txt"

    Thanks, but this computer is only mine, there are no reg. changes was made.

    ...what I mean, is that on Windows 7 it all was clearly seen. Points were made on auto after each Windows update... as for Windows 10 - I don't know now.

    "System Restore works by detecting system changes, such as in system files and settings, Registry, applications, and drivers, and saving a working state as a "restore point."

    Windows 7 restore points system - is it the same for Windows 10 Home, that I have? How to see that?

    ...I wasn't sure what EaseUS Todo Backup for.

    Yes it is the same for Windows 7 and 10. However, 10 does not enable System Restore by default.

    In the link below i posted earlier it shows how to Enable System Restore and more.

    An image backup consist of a full image of the entire operating system drive including all the Windows system files and installed programs, files, settings, etc. It makes it very quick and easy to restore your full system to exactly the same way it was from the last image backup.

    DaveA, I was just trying to understand exactly what the OP was asking. Of course some restore points are created automatically, but I thought he meant all the time or something else. As I mentioned above.

    "System Restore works by detecting system changes, such as in system files and settings, Registry, applications, and drivers, and saving a working state as a "restore point."

    I agree that a image is the best there is.
    But any and all restore points just may be more helpful than a complete system rebuild.
    Besides, with the restore point one will not loose the data since the last image.
