hi,
urw,I guess there is no way to create restore point using the GP Standard values
BUT Do not get upset
You can use WSH (Windows scripting Host ) to craete a Logon Script or a resident script to create restore points for you ( I can supply you with a sample for codeing resident wsh scripts if you like.)

Hi,RavinderPanchal
This feature is enabled by default and runs in the background , the only you can do through GP is
enable or disable system restore on all clients which are effected by Group policy
------
1-START>RUN>GPEDIT.MSC
2-local system policy > computer configuration
3-Administrative Templates > System > System Restore
on the righ panel
Double click "Turn off system restore" and set it to one of the right 4 u values:
"not configured" : does nothing and applies the defined local group policy(reverts the default local policy ) , user can manage the system restore configuration.
"enabled" : will disable the system restore and enforce it to clients
"disabled : will enable the system restore and enforce it to clients

after choosing the right value :
1-try "gpupdate /force" command on server side ( your DC)
2-reboot the clients so the policy will update and affect them the in next boot up
Good Luck
