    Create Automatic Restore Point

    I would like to automatically create a restore point everytime I shut my computer down.
    I have had no success with TASK SCHEDULER (which could easily mean I'm doing something wrong)

    Any ideas?
    Heard of/ Use any 3rd party software for this?

    did you read this thread?

    System Restore in Windows 7 and Windows 8.1 creates a scheduled restore point only if no other restore points have been created in the last 7 days.
    System Restore in Windows XP creates a checkpoint every 24 hours of absolute time.

    You can open the dialog using sysdm.cpl ,4 which you could schedue on log-off but it wouldn't be automatic.
