    To restore your PC to an earlier point in time

    Swipe in from the right edge of the screen, and then tap Search.
    (If you're using a mouse, point to the upper-right corner of the screen, move the mouse pointer down, and then click Search.)

    Enter Control Panel in the search box, and tap or click Control Panel.

    Enter Recovery in the Control Panel search box, and then tap or click Recovery.

    Tap or click Open System Restore, and then follow the instructions.

Can you pin "create restore point" on the task bar to do manually. Numerous cases are being reported that it is not being done automatically in Windows 8 Pro.
