Should Windows create a Restore Point before updating?

    That's a really good question, After reading I looked for triggers in Task Scheduler and it was blank on that tab:
    Mine is empty too.

    What would you put in the trigger tab to make it create a restore point before an update? I guess I should have said, what do you put in all the tabs to make it work. I have never done anything in the Task Scheduler.

    True some updates create one, some don't, but also notice it increases in size over time adding more to most recent or only restore point. Revo uninstaller makes restore points and registry backups. I to tend to make them manually, before and after.
