Maintenance :: Windows 8 Task Manager Deleting Old Restore Point

Mar 24, 2013

Considering the issue with Windows 8 restore points getting deleted, I decided to use Task Manager to create a new one weekly. The problem is that if I do not boot into another partition or manually delete the old restore point, they are going to pile up. Is there a way in Task Manager to delete the old restore point before creating a new one?

Windows 8 - File History Create Restore Point?

Jan 11, 2013

Does file history also create a restore point?

It was nice to have that restore point to where is you blue screened you could reboot and restore to a recent, previous system state.

Doesn't really say anything in the file history settings page, and I'm curious.

Maintenance :: Windows 8 HP Pavilion - Cannot Create Restore Point

Jan 9, 2013

I have a new Windows 8 hp pavilion all in one desktop computer and since a windows refresh, a month ago, it has stopped creating restore points and it fails to manually create a restore point also.


I have allotted 15% or 66.67 GB for this feature in the "configure" option. The C: drive is the only drive marked as "ON" to be restored. The only restore point listed is for a WinZip 17 installation on the day of the windows refresh, which was as I said before, a month ago. The are no other restore points at all and can't create one.

Can Create System Restore Point From Batch File Or Powershell?

Nov 9, 2012

Since Windows 8 is not creating System Restore points, apparently because I have a dual boot Windows 8 / Windows 7 setup, I'd like to schedule one every 3-4 days or so.

Is there any way to run system restore from Command line or batch file or Powershell? If so then I could schedule it to run when I want.

Maintenance :: When Does System Restore Create Daily Automatic Point

Mar 13, 2013

I have read several times now that system restore creates a daily automatic restore point, I had a script to do this in 7 and I added it to win 8 , now I am thinking I don't need it.

I would guess it does it at start up. Having looked at the restore points going back to the 6th when i first got this laptop i dont see any instant restore points that look to have been created automatically(daily), and I don't see points for each software installed either (i read it does this also) as its a new laptop I have installed quite a few things and there ought to be quite a few restore points if this is the case.

Apps / Software :: Mail And Video Apps Keep Opening In Task Manager After Closing

Apr 1, 2014

I normally only use 2 apps: the Mail and the Video, and even after I close these two apps, when I take a look at the Processes tab in the Task Manager, they are still there, there's no more CPU usage but they keep using Memory, which is usually a lot. So every time I want to actually close an app I have to open up the Task Manager, go to the Process tab and kill them off there, otherwise they'll keep using my memory.

Virtualization :: Unable To End Task In Task Manager Win8.1 X64 And VMlite?

May 20, 2014

As my machine doesn't support SLAT in HyperV I am using VMlite XP mode to run some 16 bit programs I need. Very occaisionally VMlite hangs on close after it has saved state or shutdown the guest machine.

I go to task manager and click end task on the Workstation GUI and it closes but very occaisionally end task wont closed the program. Sign off wont close the program either and restarting hangs at the blue screen 'restarting' I have to push the reset button on the tower to get the machine to restart.

Is there any hidden way of closing VMlite so I dont have to restart, a sort of hard end task?

Access Run New Task / Create New Task Dialog Box Directly?

Jan 14, 2013

Not sure if this is the right board, but I'm keen on accessing the aforementioned box directly rather going through task manager due to the run as admin check box, but I can't find the file location. I prefer using the run dialog usually to access apps because I could do without extra effort to merely SEARCH for apps. However I can't use it to run apps as admin (at least I've forgotten the line I might have used in vista and 7). Can the aforementioned box be accessed directly?

How To Set Restore Point And Make Sure Security Is Enabled

Nov 21, 2012

I read one online article that said to "click the Windows 8 start button", and I gave up on that article. I can't figure out how to set a restore point with Windows 8.

I was also told that I needed to "enable security". I would have thought that would have been enabled automatically, but I guess not.

Maintenance :: Making Restore Point From External Drive

Jul 18, 2013

I was trying to install Kali linux as a partition on my windows 8, and was using EasyBCD to add Kali linux to the boot entry. Somehow I ended up deleting the Windows 8 boot entry, not deleting the Windows 8 drive but deleting the boot entry meaning I can't boot into it. I have tried MANY MANY MANY solutions to fix it. I've tried using a recovery disk but that just shows the windows logo and reboots and reboots and does the same stuff.

Eventually I just gave up and thought I'm just gonna get rid of this windows 8 which by the way came pre-install with my Toshiba L855-149, and just install windows 7. Of course I NEEDED my files so just an hour ago, I removed the hard drive from the laptop, put it into HDD Docking thing I have which allows me to add the hard drive as an external drive to my other win7 desktop PC. I started copying all my files which I am still doing now. I was thinking is there a way to make some sort of restore point from the hard drive or something? Is there another way to boot up windows 8?

Maintenance :: Windows 8.1 - Microsoft Restore Point In HP Support Assistant

May 13, 2014

I need some info re creating restore points. In the HP Support Assistant, under updates and tune-up-change tune-up tasks, should the "set restore point" be turned on to "yes" when a tune-up is scheduled? I understand that windows 8.1 automatically sets restore points, but I don't know how or when or where the restore point info is stored. Is the HP Support Assistant "set restore points" the actual method used by Microsoft or an additional option?

Cannot Open Folders Or Task Manager

Jun 8, 2014

Since yesterday, I cannot open any folder on my PC and when I try to open task manager to close explorer, it closes right away.

When I try to open any folder (This PC or Downloads for example) my background flashes black, then the task bar goes blank and then nothing happens. When I try to open the task manager, it opens for 2 seconds and then closes itself down. All my files are still accessible since I am able to still play movies from WMP and I can still search from the Start screen.

I do not want to format my PC just to get something like this working again.

OK, I've noticed that what's happening is, explorer.exe pretty much restarts every time I try to open a folder. And that obviously stops the folder I'm trying to open, from opening. What's happening with task manager.

Maintenance :: Windows 8 Task Manager And 4th Gen I7

Sep 28, 2013

I just got a new laptop with an i7-4700mq in it.. 4th gen Intels.. what does task manager performance tab show? Mine shows the processor at 1% usage, but the speed up at 3.2 GHz which is turbo boost speed I think..

Dell Inspiron 3520 - Losing Internet And System Restore Point After Updates

Dec 17, 2012

I have had a Dell Inspiron 3520 for 3 weeks now. It has had 2 Windows Updates in that time. Both times I lost Internet connection and any way of connecting. The connection bar for the wi-fi was on, connection good but no Internet. After a lot of chat with Dell I did a System restore to Factory settings the first time (16 days ago). I also did a restore point once I'd re-set everything up again.

2 days ago the same thing happened after a Windows update and I also could not locate the restore point so it was back to Factory settings.

Task Manager Crashes - Application Error

Nov 30, 2012

Recently Task Manager decides to crash on open.

After that these 2 entries are created in the Event Viewer:

Event ID: 1000, Source: Application Error

Faulting application name: taskmgr.exe, version: 6.2.9200.16384, time stamp: 0x50107c26
Faulting module name: taskmgr.exe, version: 6.2.9200.16384, time stamp: 0x50107c26
Exception code: 0xc0000005 Fault offset: 0x0000000000039924

[Code] .....

I suppose the second entry is sent by Error Reporting to MS? What is causing the crash?

Task Manager - Startup Programs Not Populated At All

Jul 12, 2014

Just found out that when I go to Startup items from Task manager and msconfig, Startup is not populated at all. All the items set to start are working and visible, just no listing in Startup for any. System scan including Dism comes up clean as a whistle and so is malware detection. Haven't checked since newest updates but can's see a reason for them to do only that.
