Windows 7: Shortcut to Create Restore Point

Shortcut to Create Restore Point

Hello all:
I just migrated from XP to Windows 7 and am trying to get used to the changes. In XP I had a shortcut in my start menu that took me to the System Restore app. In XP this app covered both creating a restore point and performing an actual restore. In Windows 7 they are separate. The shortcut info in XP was:

target:
C:\WINDOWS\system32\Restore\rstrui.exe
start in:
C:\WINDOWS\system32\Restore

I did a search for rstrui.exe (in Windows 7) and ran it. It took me to the System Restore app that performs a restore. I'm looking for a link that takes me to the app that is for creating a restore point.

I know very well that I can get to this via the control panel, but I would like to have a link in the start menu that takes me there directly, as it did in XP.

So, does anyone have a solution to this? Any help is very much appreciated. I hope I'm making myself clear.

Thanks again!
