What is Windows Restore?
The Windows System Restore tool can be used to revert the computer to a last known safe working environment. Whenever an installation takes place in a computer, the tool takes a snap shot of these points and stores them to a location in the memory. When there is a problem due to application malfunction and the user can no longer work on a computer, the System Restore tool gives them an option to undo any changes that may have been made to the system between a last known safe point and the current one.
What to keep in mind?
The process only undoes changes made to the system settings and does not in any way affect the user’s data or restores previously deleted files. In addition, the process does not interfere with Windows 7 status. The restore tool is useful when there is a need to make changes to scripts, batch files and executable files. Before undertaking the procedure, log into the system in safe mode as the system administrator. Safe mode can be accessed by rebooting the PC and pressing the ‘F8’ key until you see the boot options displayed on the screen. Use the arrow key to make the appropriate selection and hit the ‘Enter’ key.
To start the process, click ‘Start’ and then click ‘Accessories.’ In the ‘Accessories’ menu, click ‘System Tools.’ In the menu that is opened, click on ‘System Restore.’ A dialog box appears with restore points that can be used to roll back the system. Select from the list what you think was a last known safe location and follow the instructions given by the wizard by making appropriate selections.
