In Trouble Don’t Forget System Restore

If you see that there is an issue with your computer that has suddenly appeared , try system restore.

This can be a lifesaver especially if you have just installed something on your computer and it has gone horribly wrong and in some cases if you have just picked up a virus infection on your computer.

You are then able to pick a date to ” rewind ” your computer to a time when it was working properly.

It will only affect your Windows operating system not your documents

So how do you start System restore?

  • In Windows 7 , Go to Start , Accessories , System Tools , System Restore 
  • Windows Vista, Go to Start , Accessories ,System Tools , System Restore 
  • Windows XP , Go to Start , Accessories , System Tools , System Restore

If you are having issues getting system restore to work , try starting in safe mode.

You do this by pressing ( in most cases ) F8 when restarting your computer , you then have a choice to start your computer normally , safe mode , and networking. Try safe mode.

If you cannot run System Restore in Safe Mode , you may have serious issues which need further consideration and usually means Windows is damaged or infected.
