NOTICE ABOUT FUTURE UPDATES!
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.

[spoiler title=”Recent Changes”]September 1, 2017 -- Version 6.4 Build 1
It's been a long time since a major new version has been released and this version is chock full of bug fixes and performance improvements. And now for the list of changes...
* Optimized much of the code used to parse Boolean values from the Registry.
* Added EnableWindowsFormsHighDpiAutoResizing to the embedded app.config file.
* Fixed multiple parts of the program to be thread safe.
* Added better handling of Integer Strings to the List View Sorting code.
* Simplified the RegEx parser used to the existence of numerical Strings with commas in it.
* Cleaned up some code on the Update Notification window.
* Added a Debug Mode and Build notation to the crash data that's written to the application event log.
* Improved the operation of the Application Event Log search tool. This required a massive rewrite of the Application Event Log tool in terms of how it holds data in memory.
* Improved code that's used to compare String values.
* Included additional code to handle user.config file access violations that could cause the program to crash. Thanks goes out to Terry Lynch for reporting this issue to me.
* Improved the window width restraints of the Disk Space Usage tool and Update Notification windows.
* Merged in version 1.300 of the HTTPHelper class and a new version of the deleteAtReboot Class.
* Fixed the support.convertErrorCodeToHex() function in which there was a possibility that "0x" wasn't prepended to the returned String.
* Optimized the code of the addExtendedCrashData() function along with adding support to handle StackOverflowException.
* Replaced the Please Wait window with a Please Wait panel built into the window itself. This major change to the program should go a long way in solving a lot of crash issues that people have been having with the program once and for all.
* Fixed a grammar mistake on one of the dialog boxes.
* Fixed a bug in which the label that tells you how many restore points are on the system wasn't updated after deleting selected restore points.
* Fixed a bug in the file download routine in which it was telling the user to check the Application Event Log if an error occurs but the program wasn't logging anything to the Application Event Log for the user to check.
* Removed an unnecessary thread declaration from the update checking routine.
* Changed the way that custom colors and column orders are saved by the program in the applications settings data. It now uses a much simpler way of storing the data.
* Removed the code to handle Specialized String Collections from the settings import and export code since it's no longer needed.
* Added a limit of 6 MBs of files to be attached to the Official Contact Form. This is so as to not overload the mail server on my web server.
* Changed the memory dump file type that's created when the program crashes. Hopefully it doesn't result in too big of a file.
* Greatly improved application startup times by properly setting the process priorities such as the CPU and I/O priorities. Before these were set to below Normal when launching the program using the Task Wrapper which caused the program to run slower than it should have been, especially at application launch.
As stated before, development of the program will be considerably slowed down. I don't have nearly the same amount of time that I used to have to keep a heavy active development cycle like what I had before with a 15 day release cycle. This new release is the first new major release since[/spoiler]
[spoiler title=”Attention users have been having crashes with this program”]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 Tweaking.com’s Windows Repair Tool at http://bit.ly/winrepairaio, 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.[/spoiler]
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.

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.
