good and ?
« on: June 09, 2012, 05:45:50 AM »


I made an error and this new reg backup fixed the error immediately.
I had gone to services.msc and changed the vsc to start and lost my restore points -This is what the registry backup fixed as all my points and configutation are fine.

However, I set my program too 'startup' on both the laptop and desktop but this am when I booted then signed in, it did not backup at startup. I could try logon but why didn't startup work.
What am  doing wrong?
Thank you

Check the task scheduler, it should have a history of the last attempt it tried to run the program, see if it has any errors :wink:

I am not too familiar with task scheduler but I went to manage computer and saw two references to Tweaking.com and both mentioned startup at logon which I have it set to. When I perform a disc clean up at C:, I remove everything except 'setup log files'. mMaybe that is erasing important scheduler information?

For now, I will run logon and drop off 14 days as that is simple. As I learn the program I would like to set a schedule as I mentioned like start up daily,11 am, 14 days and drop off 14 days. I assume a password is required.
I was hoping others could answer my elementry questions so you would not be bothered by them. Maybe as the program gets going, you will get others to answer my low level questions.
On the other hand, others like me may read my posts and benefit. I am just sorry to be a pest.
