    Damn so many probs or things to lookout to use this software. It seems I may better use AX64...effective, reliable & no probs.

    Yes i do have the msg but i don't see it affecting me in any way. Anw if you are bothered by the msg you can do what the link is saying to fix it. I don't bother because i never go in group policy.

    I too am leaving it alone. What I could gather & understand through Google search...the error seems minor i.e related to Store i.e Store setting doesn't appear in Group Policy in Windows Components...nothing major for me. As its Windows Updates prob...future Windows Updates will fix it.

    Umbra,

    Installed Rollback Rx.
    I have protected both partition & set to hourly snapshot.

    I have set to hourly snapshot so should I uncheck the option under settings - program appearance - autorun missed scheduled task at next logon?

    And to exclude Rollback in AVs, I have excluded Shield folder in program files.
    Anything else to exclude?

    I didn't mention it was due to Rx. Rx I installed just now.

    For Windows Updates, in Group Policy I noticed there is an option "allow local admin to choose settings", whats this?

    Ok, found the solution.

    First I removed built-in apps with powershell. I thought if photos, etc... will not be there then I may be able to set default to picasa, vlc, etc.. but no success.

    I thought lets try online windows account as win 10 is spying, syncing, etc...

    I use local account & wasn't able to set default apps in settings.
    I sign-in with outlook account & was able to set default apps in settings:rolleyes: sign-out outlook account & restarted the system & default apps were fine.

    Ok, I did quite a few restore & were successful.

    But the last restore was not good. I uninstalled & reinstalled Adguard Desktop & tried few other programs. I restored back to clean state. Everything was fine i.e software I tried were not there.
    But Adguard Desktop was back to default settings...it was on custom settings on this snapshot & Eset Banking Browser was also back to default settings...it was on custom settings on this snapshot. Atleast these 2 changes I noticed. I checked other few & were fine.

    Guess will have to keep an eye on Rollback restore & if happens again then back to AX64.

    Win 10 64 Pro
    Rollback Rx latest
    System Restore disabled
    Defrag disabled
    Fast Startup disabled
    Rollback Rx folder in Program Files i.e Shield excluded in Eset Smart Security

    I simply restored back to a snapshot created automatically before my testing of software. I selected that snapshot & chose restore & system restarted. Rollback Rx restored & restarted the system. Rest mentioned in my last post.

    Previously way back I have tried Comodo Time Machine, SysRestore, etc... similar programs. And I have noticed these type of programs do sometime revert back some programs settings to default.

    Have you ever tried Toolwiz Time Machine? It is similar program like Rollback but mention on the website something like doesn't use MBR but use backup architecture. Guess its not for Win 10 atleast doesn't mention Win 10 on the website.

    Umbra,

    You installed yesterday released Windows Updates yet? Is it fine with RollbackRx? No info on RollbackRx forum yet.

    Just to make sure I will do things right, if something goes wrong while Rollback RX is installed and I have a AOMEI Backupper Pro bootable disk, I just have to fix MBR to be able to successfully restore from the bootable disk, right?
    7. Disk Imaging: All known disk imaging systems that normally run under the LIVE Rollback protected Windows system will not provide the proper restoration if needed unless additional steps are taken to return the system to a BOOTable state (see HorizonDataSys: How to reset your Master Boot Record). Following the successful return to a BOOTable state, RollBack Rx™ will be completely non-functional in its ability to operate, and all snapshot data existing prior to the LAST KNOWN SYSTEM STATE at the time of the image will be lost.

    Some examples of the more popular disk imaging application vendors that reside in this category are Horizon Data Sys (Drive Cloner v5), Acronis, TeraByte Unlimited, Macrium Reflect, Storage Craft, EaseUS and AOMEI. There are many other vendors of disk imaging software... basically any vendor who makes an imaging tool that runs under the LIVE Windows operating system will have its image affected in the above described way.


    Edit: Also, is Rollback RX not effective against malware/ransomware that touches the MBR? Is it useless, then, against these types of attacks?
