Windows 7: System Restore Question

System Restore Question

Hello,

As I mentioned in a previous Post, I had to use System Restore to "normalize" everything again, after downloading AVG Free.

Surprising how well it worked.

Question: I looked on the screens for System Restore, but can't seem to locate it.

Is there an option, somewhere, to set how often it automatically creates
these points ?

If so, where, please ?

What's a good rule of thumb as to how often ?

Thanks,
Bob

Once a week is default and a good rule

You do not need to create a new task in Task Scheduler, but merely change the SR task already set for once a week.

Bugsy you have a great answer. It will help those with questions about SR that will not be covered by the answer that I gave.
That is how the forum works, to teach everyone, not just the OP.

From OP:

Hi,

Much thanks.

Never thought to look in Task Scheduler.

Expected it to be with the regular SR screens.

Thanks,
Bob
