Re: Windows XP Restore
In the event of a system problem, you can restore your computer to a previous state without losing your personal data files (such as documents, Internet favorites, and your e-mail). System Restore monitors changes to your computer, and periodically makes easily-identifiable restore points. These restore points enable you to revert your system back to a previous state. You can also create and name your own restore points at any time.
