Hello guys;

Great tips here. Had a similar idea and was about to post here. Thanks to Tactics for starting this one.

I'd like to ask something on the Brink_Task.zip(decided to apply the Task Scheduler tweak Method 2). I get an error when I have finished all of it. Please see image attached. I am running admin on the pc I have selected to do the Method 2 so I do not do step#3. Now I do not get to step#8 and the error appears...Now I already placed the Instant_Restore_Point folder as Trusted in my AV/Firewall but still there is the error.

Can you guys help me out please..

Thanks!

Suggest you start your own topic. This one is quasi closed and you will not get a good response.

Hello.


Do you have a password enabled on your Windows 7, I'm concerned you may not be able to use the Method Two of that tutorial if you don't as adding a password for that in the Task Scheduler in a necessary step to complete successfully.

Hi;

I am sorry for posting here. But allow me to finish just this one. Pardon to Tactics too.

@BFK;

I think I sorted it out. I just placed a check-mark on the box where it says, "Do not record passwords...(something).." I checked earlier and I have a system restore entry at the time I have specified it. Thanks guys for the tips here. You guys rock!

That works! I didn't get a chance to try those settings last night. I was too busy setting up HDMI to work with my video card and LG TV - all good.

Going fine here. Checked it again and there is an entry in the system restore "Instant Restore Point". Great!
