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.
Note: Always use this System Restore procedure before you use the System Recovery program.
To start the System Restore:
- Close all open programs
- Click the Windows Start Button, All Programs, and Accessories.
- Choose System Tools, System Restore, and the click Next

To manually add restore points:
