How to Run a System Restore
Have you ever installed a program that caused all kinds of problems with your computer or installed a bunch of junk software that you didn’t want? Well if you have and you catch it soon enough, that’s when a System Restore could come in real handy for you.
System Restore, NOT, I repeat, NOT a system recovery. Two completely different things. A system recovery will wipe out everything and returns your computer back to factory settings, erasing all of your data. I am talking about a system restore.
In Windows 7: System restore you can find by going to “Start Menu” / All Programs / Accessories / System Tools / System Restore.
In Windows 8/8.1: CTRL+Q, Type: System Restore, Select System Restore from the list:
Click Next to begin:
Then notice from the screen shot below I checked the box for “Show more restore points”
Select your desired restore point from the list and click next, next, next.
