Restore Point Creator will create and manage System Restore Points quickly and easily, all from a free simple program. No more drilling through multiple menus in Windows just to create a System Restore Point, now all you have to do is run this program and that's it. Follow the simple program layout and you have your System Restore Point created in no time at all.
Plus, for users of Windows 7 and Windows 8, creating System Restore Points is even quicker and easier with this program. Just pin this program to the Taskbar and you have the ability to quickly create System Restore Points using one of the two pinned Tasks ("Create System Checkpoint" and "Create Custom Named") that the program creates. It's that simple.
- Made it so that the routine that loads the list of restore points from the system into the listbox on the main window waits 750 milliseconds so as to allow the main window to catch up and be shown to the user
- The Please Wait window will no longer show on the taskbar
- Put some additional checks into the code for deletion of temporary files after the update is complete
- Some additional minor tweaks to the code
- Introduced the multirun mode for the Task Wrapper on Windows Vista since Windows Vista does support it
- Fixed an issue with the program asking if you really wanted to make the restore point
- Fixed a long standing issue in which the Please Wait window that first appears when the program loads while loading the system restore points into the list appears in the upper-left corner of the screen. This was caused by the Please Wait window not bei
- Fixed a possible hang on close of the program that could occur if the Check for Updates thread routine doesn't finish properly
- Multiple bugs were fixed in the HTTPHelper class that the program uses for the checking and downloading updates. This included fixing a couple of memory/object leaks. Updated the HTTPHelper class to version 1.180
- Fixed a possible NullReferenceException that may occur in the savePreferenceToRegistry() function on the main window
- Fixed a typo in the code in the savePreferenceToRegistry() function in which it wasn't passing the right variable as the first argument to the Registry SetValue function
- The application update process now doesn't download the compressed ZIP package from my web site to disk, it instead downloads the data into system RAM and holds it there temporarily. This makes it so that we don't write any unnecessary data to disk. For
- Fixed an exception that could occur if the user.config file was corrupted in some way
- Included several improvements to the code across the entire program that deals with scheduled tasks. This includes better validation of task settings
- Put some safeguards into the Disk Space Usage tool to make sure that the window's handle has been created and if not, code is been put into force the window to create the handle before anything else happens
- The Manage System Restore Storage Space tool wasn't loading the saved location, it was saving it but it wasn't loading it; this has been fixed
- Included some cleanup code when closing out the Official Contact Form to delete any possible files created by the window such as when you want to attach the application logs
- Optimized much of the code used to parse Boolean values from the application's System Registry key
- Added some additional logging when updating the program
- Fixed a possible crash on startup while attempting to delete the old updater.exe file that was used in the past to facilitate the updating of the program. This was because the program was trying to delete the file while the program was still running. Th
- Included some minor code optimizations
- Added some Alt hotkeys to the Yes and No buttons to the Update Notification window
- Added a countdown of 30 seconds until the Yes button is pressed for you on the Update Notification window
- Rewrote the process search and kill code to use Windows API calls instead of the WMI. This is in an effort to try to minimize the dependence on the WMI and use more traditional Windows API calls instead. Using more traditional Windows API calls is more
- Optimized much of the String comparison code in the program and most importantly improved the performance of the CaseInsensitiveContains() function by no longer relying on slower RegEx-based code
- Fixed a small bug where the String StartsWith() function caused a crash

Nice shortcut and full of features. Makes creating a restore point or restoring one a breeze especially if I pin the app to the start menu or task bar. Thanks.
Also if a computer goes under a heavy defrag it is common to loose stored restore points. I can now easily check by opening this app and ensuring that I have two or three restore points at all times.

Windows already has this.
I recommend ERUNT GUI.

Sir, I like your software. It's simple, to the point, and I can use it with AutoHotKey to schedule weekly restore points and place custom descriptions as I please. Thanks for your efforts.

Well using a VBS is fine but the main reason why i created this program was to learn the System Restore APIs and create this small program for my own use. It may be small, but i think some might find it useful :)
