    System Restore Not Working On A Laptop

    Two desktops have System Restore Working and Laptop is not working.

    Interesting is they have a System Restore Service and the Laptop Does not.

    All three had a clean install of 1607.

    Suggestions ?

    Hi, could you clarify in what way system restore is failing?

    And could you clarify what you mean by a System Restore Service? I don't have one... but system restore works.

    It only creates a restore point for a program when it is installed or uninstalled.
    No restore points for updates, the January update restore points are missing.

    As I said desktops work and they have the service running, not completely missing.

    I was looking in Task Scheduler (didn't look long enough or missed it)
