I don't see how that would work without a lot of extra work. I make a recovery point ,then install program A. A few windows updates later I make a recovery point and install program B. A few more Windows updates later I make a recovery point and install program C. A few more windows updates later I decide to uninstall program A and run the recovery point before installing program A. Wouldn't I be back to square 1 and have to start over again or am I missing something?
No, you're not missing anything. What Lee is proposing is only in case you want to get rid of newly installed program immediately and do not save any work you did on it. Restore point does not change personal files so they would be left on the disk. This would be also more cumbersome and longer to implement than just using a dedicated uninstaller which MS could and should make easily.
