You may be disappointed by reading this information but Microsoft made it totally cumbersome to understand how the automated system restore point works.
The system restore points are created automatically once per week or when a critical change to a system is done via driver or software or update installation.
If you go to Task Scheduler and edit the trigger to run at specified time every day or every hour - it will run but it will not create a system restore point. All it does is checking if a system restore point has been created since last 7 days. That's all.
If none was created - it will create one.

If you want more recent restore points then you have to create them manually via system protection in system properties.
Or use a third party backup tool such as Backup & Recovery Free: http://www.paragon-software.com/home/br-free/download.html

The only restore points which can really get you out of trouble are the Windows update or critical updates, anyway, and I still find M$ system restore to be problematical...
I have found Tweaking.com's registry backup to be just as useful, if not moreso: http://www.tweaking.com/content/page/registry_backup.html
