Task Scheduler question (System Restore)
Hi,

I accidentally (doh!) deleted the SystemRestore Tasks in Task Scheduler
(Vista).

I'm recreating them, but what arguments (if any) are passed on to rstrui.exe
when it's invoked as an action?

Is rstrui.exe the right program to invoke?

I've looked around on the web but can't find an answer.

Thanks much!
George

Here is what I have as the default under the Actions Tab in the SR task.

Action tab = Start a program %windir%\system32\rundll32.exe /d
srrstr.dll,ExecuteScheduledSPPCreation

(Note the spaces in the command)

Great! Thanks so much.

I realized (later) that I also could restore the relevant file from backup,
but this is exactly what I was looking for.
