Windows 7: Do you play with you computer?

Do you play with you computer?

Optimizing, tweaks, registry settings, downloading and installing various doodad apps just for fun?
Of course you have a recent system image backup and there is always (should be) some system restore
points. Here's a nice little tool to use before making fun adjustments to your system but screw up.
Single Click Restore Point (SCRP) is a tool for creating a restore point in single click.
OK so you know how to already do a System Restore but it takes a few keystrokes. This is simpler.
SCRP.EXE I put mine in documents but you can put it anywhere like other system tools.
It is not installed but merely a file to click and it will make you a Restore Point. Comes in very handy.
I put mine in Task Scheduler to do this every couple days. When you get ready to do full system image
backups, use Disk Cleanup and under Advanced Options you can remove all but last System Restore
Point. Depending on your setting for space to hold these points, there could be many or just a few.
Use it in good health.

SCRP.exe is not a virus or trojan. If you were infected with a virus, trojan or any malware and then
do a System Restore from a created restore point after the infection well, yes, you will restore the virus.
I took scrp.exe apart and the strings are not remotely dangerous.
My computer is like Ft Knox. No site I visit or program I d/l gets malware on my system.
Use it, don't use it, makes no difference to me. I will continue use as I have for last couple months.
Your concern is noted.

Thank you for noting my concern.
That is exactly what I wanted.

Just a little information sharing, that may or may not be useful.
It's can't hurt but might help others.

The original is not spooky but if you have doubts (I have none) here is another one:
SysRestorePoint_v14.zip If opens with WinRAR.zip, save and extract file where ever it's convenient.
It does not install but merely on demand only unless you use task scheduler.
Just trying to help and share.

I never was able to get System Restore to work in any of my Win 7 machines (although it worked fine for me most of the time in XP) so I turned it off. Instead, I use Macrium Reflect to image my C: drive.

I have the opposite experience Lady.
Windows 7 Restore Points work for me and always have.
Maybe one of Baddog22556 suggested programs would be helpful for you.
I also use Macrium Reflect but I'm sure not as much as you do.

My Windows 7 restore works - in principle. Problem is that the restore points sometimes disappear. I never found out what causes this behavior. That's why I use Macrium on a regular basis. At least that works all the time.

This is also what I do even if the restore works. it seems every virus a client brings to my work has already taken out all of the points by the time we are called in. It's hit or miss.
