    I remember being able to do a System Restore shortcut icon with XP. I recently bought a new computer with Windows 7. I want to be able to create a desktop icon that will set a Restore Point when I click it. I googled the query and tried a number of suggestions (most involving a .vbs script) but I keep getting invalid character errors.

    Any suggestions?

    Mel, Welcome to the Lounge.

    Try this method show in Windows Seven forums. It appears to be exactly what you are looking for.

    Good morning Ted.

    Why be so complicated ? No download required to do this shortcut to Restore.

    Go to Start and do not use the Restore there if it shows. Go to Accessories -> System Tools -> Restore, here , do a right click on it and send to Desktop, it will ask you if you want to make a Shortcut, acquiesce to this and voilà !

    I need simple ways to do things on my machine. JP.
