Hi Brink,

Your sugesstion does not help.

My probkem is a little different.

Whenever I shutdown and reboot my laptop, Everytime, I need to remerge the default VBS file. Is there a way I can solve the problem permanently?

I also noticed that when I go "Open with"and go to "other programs" the option stating "always use this program to open this kind of file is greyed out"and I cannot check thsi option.

I use win 7 64 bit OS.

Running the VBS file only creates the restore point for just that one time. If you want it to create a restore point at every startup, then you will need to do METHOD TWO in the tutorial instead.

Hi Brink
Yes I understand. My problem is that I follow the tutorial and by use of task scheduler make an auto restore point creation.
This works perfectly well. But only tillmy laptop is running.
If at the end of the days shutdown my laptop the next day the restore point is not created attached upped time.

I need to once again run the vbs default file by choosing the regedit program from win 7 program file.
This will then work fine till the time I shutdown my laptop.

In short the VBS file is loosing its default program connection to regedit whenever I shutdown the laptop.

Thus I was asking if there is a way wherein the vbs file remains permanently associated with regedit.

I'm not sure why or where you got that you need to have VBS files to be associated to open with regedit. If you do, the VBS file will no longer work since it needs to be associated with C:\Windows\System32\wscript.exe (Microsoft Windows Based Scipt Host) instead.

Are you changing it to open with regedit? If so, then do what I posted above to restore the default associations of VBS files, and stop that.

Windows 7 Professional x64

I tried method two (Task Scheduler) and upon clicking OK at the Actions tab, I got:

"An error has occurred for task auto_restore_point. Error message: User account restriction error. The possible reasons are that blank passwords not allowed, or that a policy restriction has been enforced."

I carefully followed the instructions twice and I did not get in step 4 an 'Access Denied' dialog box or a UAC prompt.

What am I missing?

Hello ixodid,

Is this a home computer, or are you in a domain?

Are you logged in as an administrator?

Does it have a password created for your administrator account? If not, you will need one.

Do you have UAC turned on?

Hope this helps for now,

This is one of my favorite apps to use for Windows 7. Now that everything is switching towards Windows 8, someone needs create one for Windows 8. I can't seem to get it working working with Windows 8 with either methods.
