the critical point is:

Does "Create a System Restore Point in 1-click with Quick Restore Point Maker" work with w8.1??????????????

Yours sincerely

It works fine on my Windows 8.1. :)

Installed "Create a System Restore Point." Now what? How do I get to the restore point if I have a problem with a new program? Using 8.1.

In Windows' File Explorer, right-click "This PC" and select "Properties", then click "System protection" and "System Restore". OR: In Control Panel, click "System And Security", then click "System", select "System protection" then click "System Restore".
