    Cool Auto Restore Point is possible.

    Going all the way back to the introduction of Windows Vista, I've been looking for a .reg or .vbs script, to force a new restore point.

    Well tonight I found it, or at least a link to it..... on the Windows Secrets forum.

    Compared to the script for XP, it's really long, but it works. I put it in the Startup folder for Windows 8 and 8.1 and every time I reboot the PC, the script runs and makes a new Restore Point.

    It even works good on Windows XP, and should work equally good on Vista and Windows 7.

    Voila! Success at last!

    You have link to this script?

    I think the link would be the most important part of your above post....don't you...but you seemed to have left it out for some odd reason....LOL.

    Now, I need the link for a guy on another forum who would greatly benefit from it....

    Well, I did tell you where I found it.
    Sorry, I didn't kiss you goodnight and tuck you in.

    Just joking. :ROFL:

    What I'm going to do, is put the actual script in my Download Box and then I'll post the link to that.
    The original path was long, treacherous and life threatening.

    I guess you didn't feel like Indiana Jones, to go and find it. Eh?

    I'll be back!

    Ok, job done.

    The "Instant_Restore_Point.vbs" file is now located Here:

    https://app.box.com/s/v0s7fhxx7yah6wgynik2

    The way I use the file, is to put it in the "Startup" folder and then make a shortcut to it on the desktop.

    Then you can run it manually, any time you want, and it can also run Automatically every time you boot up your PC. *

    * I also put a shortcut to my Cleanup.bat program in my Startup folder too, so I get a little FREE Maid Service on every boot up.

    I was at a customer's house recently to fix a problem with their email program.
    I knew that all I had to do was run System Restore to fix the problem, but.....
    The system had not made a restore point for the past two weeks. That was one of those "Awshit!" moments.
    It took me an hour to manually repair the problem!
    Even worse, is when some dolt shuts off System Restore all together.
    Then fixing a problem can be a real PITA.

    I do hope you can and will put that file to good use. I left the author's name, at the top of the file.
    He really does deserve the credit for such a neat script.

    Oh yes, it works equally well for all OS's all the way back to Windows XP.

    Cheers Mates!
