Windows 7: "Your computer has been restored to an earlier point in time"

I find that message strange and should not occur with a backup. That is the message you get with a successful System Restore.

Strange indeed. The only change I've made related to backup is an effort to schedule a task to shutdown after backup. That task, for an as yet unknown reason, does not get performed. I'll remove the task before the next backup and report on effect.

Turns out I was suffering from an acute case of CRS - can't remember s(tuff?). I had indeed done a system restore while chasing some other issue. So the message on backup completion was entirely appropriate.
