How to create System Restore

Microsoft Windows includes a feature that enables your computer configuration to that of a previous time when the current software problem did not exist. The feature does this by creating a restore point where it records the computer settings at that time and date.

When a new program is installed, the operating system automatically creates a restore point before it odds the new software. You can also set restore points manually.

If you experience a problem that you thin may be due to software on your computer, use System Restore to return the computer to previous restore point.
