Restore Point Creator

As of this point going further development of the program will be considerably slowed down. In the past new public release versions would be released every fifteen days with public beta versions being released in between, this is going to end. From this point on there may be as much as two months of time (or even more) between new release versions due to personal reasons. There’s no big development house behind this program, no large team of developers; it’s just me. One single guy who writes this program for donations. I give away this program for free but if you want to, you can donate. At no point do I tell you that you have to donate or even lock you out of parts of the program because you haven’t donated. No, that’s not my style. Anyways, I’m just here to tell you that development of the program will be slowed considerably from this point on due to personal reasons. This however does not mean that I’m abandoning the program. Nothing could be further from the truth.

It has come to my attention that many users who have downloaded this program may be experiencing program crashes when using this program. I, the developer of this program, have tried to make this program as crash-proof as possible. A majority of users who have downloaded and used this program do not experience program crashes. Those who are receiving program crashes most likely are receiving these program crashes because Windows on your system is broken in some way. My own machines (including several virtual machines) do not have crash issues with this program. If you are receiving program crashes I suggest you download’s Windows Repair Tool at, download it, and run the following repairs on your system.

01 – Reset Registry Permissions
03 – Register System Files
04 – Repair WMI
18 – Repair Volume Shadow Copy Service
25 – Restore Important Windows Services
26 – Set Windows Services to Default Startup

If this doesn’t work for you then your system will need to be re-installed from your Windows installation media.

If you need to bypass the no UAC launcher, download Restore Point Creator forced UAC Prompt.reg and launch it. This will force Restore Point Creator to use the UAC prompt.
To restore the no UAC launcher, download Restore Point Creator no UAC Prompt.reg and launch it.

Ever found that creating Restore Points in Windows is a bit tedious?  Click this, click that, go there, click another thing, and then finally you’re at where you need to be to create a Restore Point.  There’s got to be an easier way to do all of that.  Right?  Well, now there is.

Introducing Restore Point Creator, written by Me.

Create and manage System Restore Points quickly and easily, all from a free simple program.  No more drilling through multiple menus in Windows just to create a System Restore Point, now all you have to do is run this program and that’s it.  Follow the simple program layout and you have your System Restore Point created in no time at all.

Plus, for users of Windows 7 and Windows 8, creating System Restore Points is even quicker and easier with this program.  Just pin this program to the Taskbar and you have the ability to quickly create System Restore Points using one of the two pinned Tasks (“Create System Checkpoint” and “Create Custom Named”) that the program creates.  It’s that simple.

  • Create System Checkpoint — Creates a System Restore Point with the name of “System Checkpoint made by System Restore Point Creator”
  • Create Custom Named — Asks you what you want your System Restore Point to be named and then creates one based upon what you inputted.

Download it for free here.  Full Source Code is available for review upon request.

If you like this program, feel free to donate.  Or feel free not to donate.  It doesn’t matter to me.  Donations to use this program will never be required to use this program.  It is and always will be a free program.  But, if you do feel that you want to donate it would be a nice gesture of appreciation for the program.

A fan of this program decided to put together a video demonstrating the usage of this program. Thank you.
