How to Create a Desktop Shortcut to Sys Restore in ME?

by tobeach / May 15, 2006 7:00 PM PDT

I've just been handed a 128RAM,40G AMD Duron Compaq computer to clean up before it's given as a gift to a not terribly informed user, new to the OS.
While removing 10 download Trojans, 8 data miners,10 browser re-directs etc., I've discovered to get to System Restore, one has to go to ''help''(Or via Accessories>system info> etc),
to find a link on upper left to click which opens Sys Restore. At each stage I've tried to right click for a ''send to desktop'' with out any automated response.
I suspect(being ME)she'll need to use this frequently and having it on desktop would be least confusing for
her... But exactly how? T.I.Advance for your help! Happy

Right-clicking and empty spoy on the desktop and select New > Shortcut.

Point it to:

C:\windows\system\restore\rstrui.exe

That should do it.

Or you can also just go to the program in the start menu, start, programs, accessories, system tools, system restore and on system restore, right click and send to desktop (create shortcut) then the icon will always be on the desktop.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
