Windows 7: create restore point at startup

create restore point at startup

When using XP I could add a shortcut to rstrui.exe in the startup\program file which would create a restore point every startup. I found this very convenient as I often need to backtrack when playing with configurations and stuff. I cannot do this in Windows 7 .
Does anybody know how it can be done ??

Use Task Scheduler.
In fact, Microsoft already added a System Restore entry for running at system start.
