Tip & How-To about Computers & Internet
Hi, some time we have a problem with our system (slow because of an installed update, program, etc) and we need to get it back the way it was just before the problem. Here are a few steps to take to restore our system in Microsoft windows 7 Operation system (OS).
If you accidentally modify or delete a file or folder, you can restore it to its previous version as part of the restore point.
Start your system and let the OS boot completely. Log on to your computer with administrative privileges.
Click on the start button, All programs, Accessories, System Tools, System Restore.
Read the warning message and choose the restore method you want to adopt.
You have two options;
1.) recommended Restore
2.) Choose a different restore point.
You can choose a particular restore point, to restore your system to that date and time. If that does solve your problem, you can revert back (Undo the restore) by restoring back your system to the current date and time which will be created before starting the restore.
Confirm the restore point. This is the drive where the restored data will be stored. You can also click scan for affected programs, to see the programs that will be restore/removed when the system restore is complete.
System protection must be turned on for you system to store restore points to your hard disk. When the space allocated to the restore point by the system is full, old restore are deleted and new ones created.
If you click the finished button the system will request you restart it. Save you document and exit all programs and click on the yes to restart your system.
System restore does not affect any of your documents, pictures, or other personal data. Also recently installed programs and drives might be uninstalled.
When restarts is complete, your system will be restored the state it was just before that date and time on the restore point.
