Windows 7: Restore Point - Add "Create Restore Point" to Context Menu in Windows

The easiest way to remove this from your context menu would be to use OPTION TWO in the tutorial to use the .bat file. Be sure that you do all of the steps, and will remove it for you automatically.

OK, The DOS window opens with the little curser flashing. What is the command line I must enter to to make it run?

You don't need to type anything. Are you logged in an administrator account?

Did you right click on the .bat file, click on "Run as administrator", and click on "Run" and "Yes" to approve the .bat?

Yes! After hours of trying, I re-installed the program, followed Option 2 once more and it looked promising because the command prompt line now read DELETED: and the details; it disappeared so quickly that I could not copy the rest.
I restarted W7 for the so many-est time and the "Create Restore Point" once again appeared!!!
I solved it finally, by going to the windows Start Menu/Programs/ Start Up and found there the 2 files that kept opening and showing "Create Restore Point"and deleted them.
A re-start confirmed success.
To finish off I used the standard Windows System Restore program to create a restore point, just to make sure "all was well"
I like to thank all who have tried to help; one big plus is that I have have discovered and joined Seven Forums!

Greetings, hansjohan

Ah, you had used something else instead of this tutorial to add a "Create Restore Point" shortcut to your startup programs.

I'm happy to hear that you got it sorted.

No Luck

I followed the directions exactly as described, when i click on the create restore point there is no warring i needed to bypass. It goes right into create the restore point. so i dragged and dropped the script into the c:/Windows drirectory and added the registry key. The key shows on my desktop context menu, but when i click one it i get the error in the pick. I followed all the directions more than once and i read them over and over to makesure i was doing everything correct. Acorriding to the tutorrial i am doing everthing 100% correct. Nomatter what i do the same error/thing keeps happing. Any ideas why or what could be wrong? Here is a Pic to show what happens when i click the context button and also the location of the script.

Figured it out

Looking at my own Pic i noticed the script was in the main C drive not C://Windows folder. I just put the script into the windows folder and bang everything works 100, Thanks for the tutorial

Nar, you shouldn't. Option Two will undo it if you should ever want to.
