I have never relied on something else to do something for me when it comes to my computer, especially making System Restore Points.
I've never had a problem with an update before so it doesn't bother me if it doesn't make a restore point. However, I do manually make restore points if and when I'm about to do something stupid. And by stupid I mean things like updating drivers, replacing drivers, changing some obscure setting, etc.
, given the way you refer to security software and the way you want ABSOLUTE
control over just about everything
on your computer, I'd have expected you to be making your own restore points.--
