    System Restore Point Shortcut - Windows 7 Help Forums

    Having tried unsuccessfully to program Task Scheduler (in 8.1), I found at the above site in Windows 7 forums a shortcut for a script which supposedly simplifies manual creation of a System Restore point. However when I use it the Restore Point created with the script carries the notation "Install" in the list of Restore Points. Does anyone have any idea what this arcane notation could mean? I'll try to attach a snap of the screen to show what it looks like.

    I have "install" too.
