Reliably create a system restore point from the command line

QuickSystemRestore is a command line tool with a single purpose: to create a System Restore point.

While that sounds simple enough, the program is actually a little smarter than it first appears. Because if the creation fails for some reason - System Restore has been turned off, say, or it's broken for some reason - then it'll try to repair your system to get everything working again.

And the repairs are surprisingly thorough. So QuickSystemRestore will look for policy settings which might be causing a problem, say, and restart the necessary services. It'll try to repair System Restore, as well as the WMI service, and if a Restore Point still can't be created, will prompt you to reboot your PC.

Please note, in order for this to work, you must run QuickSystemRestore as an administrator. And, annoyingly, if you forget the program won't point this out. Rather, it'll complain that System Restore isn't working, which is rather misleading.

If you set up and run the program correctly, though, this won't be an issue, and QuickSystemRestore will create restore points on command whenever you feel it's necessary.

Verdict:

The program needs to recognise when it doesn't have the necessary permissions to run properly, but otherwise QuickSystemRestore provides an easy way to create Restore Points on demand

Spektrel Art 1.0.0

Free Full Commercial Software

Spektrel Art is a stand-alone program and Photoshop plugin which transforms digital photos into "magical art that glimmers and gleams with intersecting lines of tapered light".

What does that mean? Essentially it applies a configurable mix of effects, enhancing edges, smoothing backgrounds and emphasizing colours. Take a look at the thumbnail for one example, and the official product page has more.

Spektral Art works much like any similar tool. Open an image, click one of the thumbnails to apply a particular preset, or click a few buttons and drag some sliders to fine-tune the results.

There's surprising scope for variation, too. For example, just switching from the "Light" to "Dark" theme can transform a bright and friendly image into something dark and sinister, at least in some cases (results vary depending on the source image).

Please note, the demo version doesn't allow images to be saved.

SPECIAL OFFER: as we write, the developer is offering Spektral Art for free. The offer expires August 29th. Please note that you must provide your name, address and phone number to receive your free license.
