Rocky,
You did everything correctly.

Somewhere I slipped in a mistake into the version you downloaded.

The statement at the end:
$obj > $env:\userprofile\desktop\restorepoints.txt is WRONG.

Remove that backslash between $env: and userprofile.
That line should be:
$obj > $env:userprofile\desktop\restorepoints.txt

Very sorry about that.

That worked. Hopefully Rocky can do that as well (This is Ztruker - I reported the error).

Rich,
Thanks. I also have a much shorter script (a one-liner) that I'll be using in the future.

I wish I had the patience to learn Power Script? It is amazing what you can do with it.

Do you know of any online courses available? Something I would pay for and therefore (because I'm thrifty ) would actually apply myself to doing the course?

Ztrucker,

I have had to google almost everything.

The lanaguage has "evolved", consequently, I recommend ignoring anything more than a year old. This situation will worse when PowerShell III iis unleashed in its 'final' version.

I'm just in my infancy in learing PowerShell. The language and, especially, the tools to help you write scripts have a long, long ways to go compared to C++ or VBasic.

I'm busy trying to get some answers out of the way, after which, I'll search thru my links,etc. which I've used.

Some of the syntactical rules are different from some ingrained programming habits of mine.

Thanks for the links. I've not done any serious programming in 10 years or more other than Web Site stuff (HTML/CSS/Javascript, PHP, MySQL). I can hardly spell C++ any more.

I'm getting started. Also found these 5 tutorials on PowerShell: Scripting with Windows PowerShell

The first one is a good start on what PowerShell is and how to use it command line without thinking about scripting (yet). I learned that Get-Help is your friend!!!
