Given that the scheduler is to run an Mp3, should it open WMP to do so? I have posted a thread on the subject But i believe i am asking more questions than i am getting answers.

I would like to have system restore feature only run when a new program is installed on my computer and at no other time unless I manually create one. Is this possible with Task Scheduler and HOW Please? Thanks everyone.

hi ahamprema, i believe windows does this automatically anyway, i'm not sure what your asking, do you mean you want it to not create automated restore points every few days?

Yes I would like to only create a restore point when a program is installed and not every few days. I would also like to know if turning off system restore means I can't use restore anymore or it just turns off automated creation of restore points. Anyone know the answers to these questions or know where I might find them?

Unfortunately you cannot create system restore points after the system protection has been turned off.

This may affect how restore schedules work but that part isn't my speciality

Wow, what a coincidence!

I was wondering if Windows 7 had a Reminder/Notes/Task thing like this about 5 minutes before I came across this thread.

Great job, buddy! Sure made my life a tad bit easier.

I've used Task Scheduler to make SpeedFan run on startup. I need this program because my Ferrari 3400 has overheat issues. I set speedfan.exe to run on log on. I logged off and logged on but it didn't show up. It dosen't run on system startup. Can anyone help me fix this?
