If you like as a test, create an elevated shortcut of the .vbs using the tutorial below first. Afterwards, set the task to run the elevated shortcut to see if it may run via the task.

Elevated Program Shortcut without UAC Prompt - Create
The elevated shortcut worked. So how do I use this knowledge to make the task scheduler automatically create a weekly system restore point?

Good news so far.

You would use the same original "System Restore" task, but edit it to have it run the elevated shortcut instead.

So you want me to create an automatic task that is scheduled to run an elevated shortcut that runs a task?

Isn't there a way to just create an elevated task? Can't I just write a new task that is a copy of the elevated one and give it a trigger to run once a week?

Basically yes.

It's the only workaround that I know of to have a task run an elevated task/shortcut when the method on the first page doesn't work.

Can I place the shortcut in a separate folder or does it need to stay on the desktop?

Yes, you can move the shortcut to anywhere you like. You'll just need to specify that location in the task.

Ok. So: do I just create a regular scheduled task that uses the elevated shortcut, or do I have to write it like I wrote the task for the elevated shortcut so it's elevated itself?

You'd basically just repeat the tutorial on the first page here, but use the elevated shortcut instead of the .vbs file.

Can I just edit the original task that failed to use the elevated shortcut, or do I have to make a new one from scratch?

You could edit the task to run the elevated shortcut, but you don't want to edit the task used to create the shortcut.
