       Windows 7 System Restore

If your computer has been acting strangely or going slow for a while now, there is a way to bring it back to a condition where the performance used to be satisfying. This is possible by using the System Restore option in your Windows computer. Such options in Windows 7 help stave off data loss. Here is an explanation of how System Restore works on your computer.

Using System Restore in Windows 7

System Restore creates markers of the setting configurations in the PC, without bothering you about it. As a result, if you choose to use System Restore, there is going to be a list of older points that you can move back to. There is also the option of using more than a single restore point if there is some specific state that you want to go back to. Here’s how to use the feature.

Steps to follow

  • Hit the Start button on your Windows 7 computer, and type in System Restore in the Search bar. Select the first result that you see.
  • Click Next and choose the required restore point from the options that are shown. You will be able to tell what each restore point is, and each will have a time stamp to identify it.
  • To see all restore points that are available, click on the Show more restore points link at the bottom. When you have chosen a restore point for the operation, hit the Next button, followed by Finish. This will start the process up, and when it is done, you will be brought to the desktop.

    Make A Restore Point

You can also make a restore point yourself. To do this, tap on the Windows key on the keyboard, and then enter Create a Restore Point in the Search bar. Select the first option that comes up. The System Properties window will open up now; from there, choose the Create option at the bottom of the System Protection tab. Now, enter a description for the Restore Point that you are making, and then click on the Create button.

There are cases where the manual creation of a restore point will run you up against a wall. The problem does not happen when the computer does it automatically. In either case, the way to fix the problem lies alongside a clean installation of the operating system.
