    Oops, yes, it certainly works for me. I didn't notice the update, thanks.

    Only difference is that I had this dialog set in the task settings. I don't know if it exists in Windows 7 as it doesn't appear in the screen shot in step 6 of the tutorial one way or the other.

    Great news.

    That setting should be in the Settings tab at the bottom.

    That path is for the tabs you had open in your last Internet explorer session - it is nothing to do with restore points which are stored in C:\System Volume Information\.

    A Look Into IE?s Reopen Last Browsing Session Feature Internals | Ramblings On Windows Development

    This folder is hidden and you will not have access to it so easiest was to see your restore points is with the Get-ComputerRestorePoint powershell command.

    Please post the results from this and your complete task set-up and history if it is still not working. Double check also you are using the new script as it works for me.

    and Get etc....

    which still remains very small.......

    i appreciate the work you invest in this, but i am giving up on it.

    I really work hard and go on the internet during work, although i should not.

    It really takes too much time for me, and it probably is my fault....

    Hope you understand

    ok guys, me again, although i wanted to give up, but cannot let go...

    So today Sunday a bit more time.

    This is what happened:

    Brink informed me to read this thread: http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials...u-windows.html

    which i did.

    Overthere it is said to put the downloaded/extraxted file in C:\WINDOWS, so i transferred the file from the Program Files to the Windows folder.

    Changed the location of the file in the Task Scheduler (actions) to C:\WINDOWS, put in the hour of 13.30h local time Belgium and kept on looking when the program would start. But for me it did not start.......nothing happened.... (was away for a few minutes)

    So i restarted the program manually, but nothing happened right away, so i restarded it again.

    As you can see averything ran, the manually started both times did run with a difference of 3 seconds.

    Did start a manually create restore point before that, to have on at 13.22h.

    So right now i guess it depends on where you put the file in order to work.

    Will try this afternoon the same with the option of Adam and see what gives.

    Jeff

    P.S.

    with many thanks to Shawn and Adam

    Did let it ride again at 14.40 automatically.
