Well, according to zemana, the tasks were trojans that exist in the RAM. Could that explain it?

It wouldn't hurt to do a full scan of your system to be safe in case it may be from something else.

Doing an offline scan at boot with Windows Defender Offline or an AV of your choice would be a good option.

Auto Restore point not working

Hello All,

great tutorial, many thanks.
I have followed method 2 and task history shows the task ran, however there are no restore points associated. I am running windows 10 64bit, any ideas?

Many thanks

Hello delmonte, and welcome to Seven Forums.

Sometimes it may take a few minutes for the restore point to show up in System Restore.

For now, you might see if either tutorial below may work for you instead.

Scripts work great.

I have the machine setup to create a restore point at startup, but two more things Id like to do.

1) Bypass the User Account Control. I've tried 3 methods: Task Scheduler, Winaero Elevated Shortcut.exe, and UAC Trust Shortcut.

The first two dont work at all (because they dont work with vbs scripts?).

In the case of UAC Trust Shortcut, when you are fully loaded in windows, it work fine. The problem is that UAC Trust Shortcut must be running to affect the shortcuts it has created. Thus, I have it set to open at startup.

The dilemma here is that when the startup folder shortcuts take effect, the system restore script initializes before the UAC Trust Shortcut program

2) I want to eliminate the "system restore point created successfully" message


thanks

Hello kitpzyxmsir, and welcome to Seven Forums.

You should be able to use Method 2 as is in the tutorial on the first page here to create an instant restore point without a UAC prompt or success message.

Hi Brink,

The main reason I have been using a combination of methods for eliminating the UAC during startup of specific items is that, for me, none of the methods work on all file types.

I would prefer to always use the "scheduled task" method for this purpose, but I have never been able to initialize any VBS file in that environment

The Method 2 scenario wasnt exactly what I was looking for, but the Instant_Restore_Point.vbs would be ideal for working silently in the background whenever windows boots up.

However, I did set up Method 2 as-is (well, not exactly as-is....I made a few changes I hoped would no matter) to see if i could finally get a VBS script to work in there

I tried the daily setting and the one time setting.

It still didnt work.

I never get a password prompt when trying to setup a task because my intent is to eliminate the UAC, not setup a schedule, so the "trigger" in not a factor. I really dont want to have to setup a login password.

Is this the step that is stopping me? Is there something unique about VBS scripts in re passwords or otherwise?

In the screenshots you will see what I did, including "configure for Windows 10"

What changes did you make?

Luckily, you're not prompted for a password in W10.

Yeh, I dont know if it is still this way, but I learned my lesson the hard way when I first got Win 10, created a microsoft user account from the start menu, and got stuck with an unsolicited and unwanted computer password login
