How to Restore your System to its Sate A few day back.

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.

Note:
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.

computer very slow


If your problem is that your computer is very slow and you have upgraded your memory to the maximum, then you should concentrate on cleaning up and optimising the Windows file system.

Download and install the following utility programs that can help you to improve the performance of your computer.

Advanced System Care Free - run the Deep Care option of this utility.
DiskMax - run a Detailed Scan and let it clean up all profiles, updates, cache etc.
Smart Defrag - run a Defrag and Fast Optimize
CCleaner - use this to compliment the above plus use the Tools Uninstall option to remove any unwanted software programs, browser tool bars etc. Also use the Tools Startup option to disable any of the programs being started on every boot that don't need to be, i.e. things like QuickTime, Adobe Reader.

can't update my bios on hp pavillion a1010n??


Have you downloaded the right BIOS for your computer and do you really need to update this?

According to the HP support web site above the only version is 3.09 dated 21 June 2006 - if you already have this version, this may be why you cannot update it.

If your problem is that your computer is very slow, then updating the BIOS will not make any difference - you should concentrate on cleaning up and optimising the Windows file system.

Download and install the following utility programs that can help you to improve the performance of your computer.

Advanced System Care Free - run the Deep Care option of this utility.
DiskMax - run a Detailed Scan and let it clean up all profiles, updates, cache etc.
Smart Defrag - run a Defrag and Fast Optimize
CCleaner - use this to compliment the above plus use the Tools Uninstall option to remove any unwanted software programs, browser tool bars etc. Also use the Tools Startup option to disable any of the programs being started on every boot that don't need to be, i.e. things like QuickTime, Adobe Reader etc.

Toshiba Satelite A150-S4184,Hasent been used much,It was verry fast, now have internet again and loads very slow and takes long time to load pages,I think auto downloads instales windows 7,What can I


How much memory do you have in your Toshiba Satelite laptop?
Windows XP with Service Pack 3 needs a minimum of 1GB but ideally would run better with 2GB.

Windows 7 would need the same but there is no auto-update process to go from XP to 7 as this is not allowed - you would have to do a Custom install of Windows 7 which requires a clean install (i.e. format the hard drive and start from scratch).

If you are running XP with less than 1GB memory, then you need to check what the maximum memory that the laptop can be upgraded to?

The easiest method is to use the Crucial Memory web site System Scanner utility which will detect how much memory is installed and advise how much you can upgrade to according to the options available for the specific make & model of laptop.

If the laptop hasn't been turned on or on-line for a long time then you may be using a lot of resources downloading Microsoft critical updates plus updates for other installed programs like iTunes, QuickTime, Java etc.

Try downloading and installing a copy of the free Advanced System Care 5 utility then running the Deep Care tools which include System Optimisation and clean-up utilities to improve system performance.

genuine microsoft download my system, for that windows os will be slow,genuine microsoft must remove from our system


Hi,

This is installed as part of the Windows Updates. The easiest way to get rid is to perform a system restore. This will put your pc back to the way it was on a date you specify - you will want to choose a date before the Windows Updates were installed.

Go to start, programs/All programs, accessories, system tools, system restore. Go through this wizard and it should end up like it was before the updates were installed

Hope this helps
