How to Automatically Run & Create a Restore Point From the Task Scheduler

Restore points are recorded snapshots of the state of your computer that are used in the event a system error necessitates the need to run the System Restore utility. A default copy of Windows schedules the creation of a restore point via the Task Scheduler. If you would like to create a restore point or if you would like to change when this occurs, you can modify these settings in the Task Scheduler options.
