Hi, System Restore does this as a matter of course.

It should do about one a day, on average.

It makes checkpoints by default but there is no facility to set auto restore points,wouldn't be much use to you if it was auto setting in the middle of problems that system restore is designed to eliminate, the idea is to ensure your PC is optomised, spy/malware trojan free then set a restore point so if anything does go wrong you know you are going to restore your PC to a good working state.

System restore usually only sets its own RESTORE point if and when you make deliberate changes like install or uninstall a program or whatever. In other words it will detect any changes to your system and set a resore point. For example - i have made no changes to my syustem for the previous two days and when I look at all my RESTORE POINTS those days are not restorable. However, I did install some software packages on Monday the 18th and system restore detected this and set a restore point automatically. There is no restore point for the 19th and 20th. Remember, System Restore does use a great deal of system resources - indeed some Geeks recommend disabling it not only in your desktop but also in - please see Black Vipers recommendations
