    Restore System using restore point


    Hello,
    Had to use a recent restore point. Started the restore, made a list what will be affected, and it started. After waiting about 25 minutes I got an error notice that restore was not succesful because of anti virus (?). The only antivirus on my system is windows defender, tried to stop it in task manager by selecting "end task" and acess was denied.
    Finally had to use the macrium backup.
    So:
    1. Whats the use of restore points if cannot use them ?
    2. How to stop the defender so I can use the restore point ?
    Answers will be appreciated.
    Thanks


    :)

    Restore System using restore point

    System Restore is on But No Restore Points

    Merely enabling the System Restore feature won't create a restore point. In older version of Windows, there was a scheduled task that periodically did a restore point.... but the schedule isn't configurable in Windows 10

    So, Restore Points are created when:

    • You manually create them
    • You do an install or uninstall of a software package
    • You get an update from Microsoft
    • Periodically... but you can't choose when

    Here is an example of my Restore Points (notice that "Show more restore points" is checked):
