    Windows 9 (aka Windows 10)

    I've always set my scheduled task to run under the System account. Works fine.

    Thanks, Shawn,

    As for the item 11 in your tutorial which is related to the password. Since I never use a password to login into my computer I found a way for this task to not ask for a password. In the General Tab under Security Options, I've changed the User from my account to System. After done that I was able to create the task without any password. Is that ok?

    That's great news Johnny. Thank you for sharing. Welcome to Ten Forums.

    If it's working for you, then it'll be safe and fine to use like that.

    I suggested using the System account 2 weeks ago, and wasn't lying when I said it works fine.

    Awesome thread ...

    1a) Backup Registry
    1b) Download your Registry addon

    I will say that I needed this info as my system died Dec 9th.

    Nothing worked.

    System would boot up and then hang - with a dialogue box that Windows had crashed!

    Why?????

    System Restore failed.
    System Reset failed.

    Then upon a 3rd system reset it started undoing the changes. Thank God - I did not want to reset to Windows 7 and then start the long arduous journey of migrating to 10.

    The next morning Dec 10th - I turned on the laptop and was greeted with the standard Windows 10 login and I logged in.

    Ok - everything worked. The PC was purring!

    Suspiciously I looked at the Windows update and noted a critical update on Dec 10th @5:00 am.

    Could my nightmare have started with a bad patch? And end with a good one?

    Sufficed to say I started looking for an automated system restore create and found yours.

    Kudos!!

    Hello shamrockoz, and welcome to Ten Forums.

    I'm glad the tutorial can help with your restore points.


    Windows Updates can often reset some settings back to default and come with bugs, so it's possible an update could have fixed or caused an issue.

    Thank-you so much Shawn! I always forget to make restore points, now I don't have to worry about it.

    Great tutorial as usual.
