Create A System Restore Point.

System Restore is a form of system backup that enables the user to recover from many a disaster. While system restore automatically creates a restore point at a given time each day, if your PC is not switched on at that given time then the system restore cannot be created; therefore, it is necessary for you to have to wait for the next scheduled restore file creation point.

While installing most software applications will automatically trigger a system restore point, it is good practice to get into the routine of manually creating a restore point every time you make significant changes to your PCs setup.

To manually create a system restore proceed as follows:

1. Click the Start button

2. From the Start menu click Control Panel

3. In Control Panel click the System Icon

4. On the Left of the System Properties Window you will find a list of Tasks. From this list click System Protection

5. In the next window click the Create Button

6. A new dialogue box now appears

7. In this Dialogue box type a suitable name for the restore Point (preferably one that gives you an insight into what you created the restore point for. It is far better to have a title such as: 'Changed display settings' than one simply called 'Restore point 1'. At least the first title gives you a description, the second does not.)

8. After typing a suitable title, click Create

9. The Creating A System Restore Point progress bar will now appear

10. Once the restore point has been created a box will appear with the legend 'The restore point was successfully created.'

11. At this point click OK to finish the process

As well as the above, you can also create a system restore point as follows:

1. Click the Start Button

2. Click All Programs>Accessories>System Tools>System restore

3. In the System restore window click the 'Open System Protection' link.

4. In the System protection Window follow instructions 4 through to 11 above to complete the task.
