    Scheduled Restore Point

    I used the Scheduled Task Wizard to create a system restore point daily at 9PM every day. I was told that I had successfully completed the schedule. Then Task Scheduler appeared with the message that "The new task has been created, but may not run because the account information could not be set.The specific error is 0x80070005: Access is denied. Try using the Task page Browser button to locate application."

    The task has not been run and I need help determining where the account information is, how to get the task to run, and where the task page browser button is.

    Re: Scheduled Restore Point

    Is this a Windows XP question, Gloria? If so, I'm gonna move it there for proper attention. I don't use System Restore OR scheduling with XP, so I don't have any suggestions for ye I'm afraid.

    Re: Scheduled Restore Point

    A common solution is that Scheduled Tasks require an account with a non-blank password.

    However you can use this work around......but I would use the above if I was you

    1) Start | Run | regedit.

    2) Once in regedit navigate to :

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESYSTEMControlSet001ControlLsa

    3) In the right hand pane, right click on limitblankpassworduse and

    4) Select modify.

    5) Change the Value data to 0.

    Close the registry editor.

    Re: Scheduled Restore Point

    I suppose it's a Win XP problem, I wasn't sure if this was peculiar to just XP or all OS's.

    Re: Scheduled Restore Point

    I learn something new every time I ask for help in here. I didn't know that a password was required, I never use that function, the last time I did that I was running Windows 98 SE.

    I don't want to use passwords, because sometimes I lose them or forget which one I used. I will use the work around and I thank you for the information. Perhaps it may be best to forget the whole thing, I can do it manually with no problem. Yes, I think that's what I will do and leave the registry alone.

    So please consider this post completed and resolved.

    Re: Scheduled Restore Point

    For whatever this is worth to you Gloria, I'd like to recommend that you re-think the idea of NOT using passwords on a computer running Windows, or any OS for that matter. You can Google around and I'm sure find others who will agree with my opinion. In this day and age of worldwide access via the internet, as you know, the potential for "hacking" from outside your building is a real threat. If you setup your system to run only after logging on with a password, at least you are providing yourself a first line of defense from those potential hackers. In order to "see" your hard drive, a hacker would, at a minimum, first have to crack your access password. Now, I admit that they can do that, but at least you can protect yourself from so-called casual hackers by using a logon password.

    I know that keeping track of passwords can be a bummer, but the potential benefits in protection are well worth the effort involved. Just wanted to throw this out to ya...

    Re: Scheduled Restore Point

    I know I should Doc, and I use RoboForm to help me remember them,but using one to log-in scares me. Suppose RoboForm failed or I had a crash and forgot my password. I could write it down, and then fail to find it, wouldn't that be a kick in the pants? A long time ago when I was running Windows 95, that's what happened to me and I had to format and start from scratch (not one of my favorite things to do).

    At my age, it's so very easy to forget things, but when I forget my name or address, I will sign myself into the nearest nursing home. I will think about choosing one, but I guarantee nothing.

    Thanks for the suggestion, I always value your opinion.

    Re: Scheduled Restore Point

    That's why you make the password complicated for everyone else, but easy for you to remember. Use name of your street and the last four numbers of your phone number, or two other easily remembered (for you) pieces of information.

    It's really not that hard.

    Re: Scheduled Restore Point

    You should not need to schedule a restore point creation anyway. By default, system restore creates a restore point daily. See the first paragraph in the "Understanding System Restore" section at Windows XP System Restore. See also - Microsoft Windows XP System Restore.

    Re: Scheduled Restore Point

    Joe, as i understand what I read, System Restore creates restore points when needed but NOT at system startup. Did I understand what I read? If I don't create a system start up point when I ask it to go back to a previous time, I'm told that NO restore point for Startup was created.

    Re: Scheduled Restore Point

    That's a good idea, perhaps I can remember my phone number and my house number. <img src=/S/confused3.gif border=0 alt=confused3 width=45 height=45>

    Re: Scheduled Restore Point

    System Restore does create restore points under the circumstances outlined in those articles. Also, as stated in those articles it creates a daily restore point automatically. So, sometime in the last 24 hours there should be an automatically created restore point available. You are correct that a restore point is not created automatically on system startup.

    Re: Scheduled Restore Point

    I have no idea why mine is acting differently. Back on Sat. Jan. 5th, System Restore created a System Checkup and not since then. Most of the time the only restore point created is the one I do manually each and every day. That's no big deal, I have no problem doing that.

    Re: Scheduled Restore Point

    Most likely thing that will do this is some "Hack" done in the registry. I have run into this a time or two, and was told that "Yes all I wanted to do was see what would happen". Guess what, they found out <img src=/S/evilgrin.gif border=0 alt=evilgrin width=15 height=15>.

    Now running HP Pavilion a6528p, with Win7 64 Bit OS.

    Re: Scheduled Restore Point

    I can't guess what they found out and I don't want to learn either. I never go into the registry and delete things to found out what would happen. I don't do that with system files either. I only mess with my program files, if I make a mistake the worst that can happen is that the program has to be reinstalled.

    Do you, perhaps, know how to set System Restore back to it's original settings or should I leave well enough alone?
