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.

    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 :)
