Sorry I cannot read your screenshots.

By design System Restore runs in the background and when monitoring is enabled, will automatically create a new restore point every 24 hours (system checkpoints) or in some cases, when a program is installed or making configuration changes before the changes occur.

If you use the computer frequently, it may have restore points almost every day, and some days might have several restore points. The actual number of saved restore points depends on how much computer activity there is, the size of the hard disk, and how much disk space has been allocated on your computer to store System Restore information. When the allotted disk space is reached the oldest restore point will be purged on a first in first out (FIFO) basis. Otherwise, restore points over 90 days are purged automatically in order to keep the volume's usage within the specified amount. All restore points will eventually be deleted after the time specified in the RPLifeInterval registry setting is reached or earlier if allotted disk space is insufficient so it is not possible to create a permanent restore point.

Sorry for the delay in responding, but my PC time is rather limited. This was my first experience in screen printing and I underestimated the size. Try this, please.Attached File  10X3.jpg   67.23KB   0 downloadsAttached File  10X3.jpg   67.23KB   0 downloads
