Hello BC members!
I'm sure all you old dogs know this, but maybe there are some that don't
I seldom use restore points to restore my PC to an earlier time.It however can be a good tool at times.
I recently noticed that my PC was not getting the automatic 24 restore points so I researched and found this link.
I discovered that my Task Scheduler in services had been changed to manual. It needs to be set to automatic for System Restore to work .
Both System Restore and Task Scheduler have to be on automatic in services.I don't know how or when mine got changed.
I'm now getting restore points ever 24 hours. Here's the link. I hope this will help someone!!http://windowsxp.mvps.org/checkpoints.htm
