Creating and Using a Restore Point: (Back to installation instructions)

When you install a new piece of software or hardware, if things don't go quite to plan, you can tell the computer to go back to how it was, just before you started. But only if you've created a Restore Point!

This tutorial shows you how to create a Restore Point in Windows XP. Although the process is similar for all versions of Windows please consult your Windows help for more details.

Creating a restore point

How to restore your PC to a previously created Restore Point

Creating a Restore Point:

1 - To run the Restore Point application click:

Start | All programs | Accessories | System Tools

and then choose System Restore.



2 - Click the option - 'Create a Restore Point' and then click 'Next'.

3 - You will then be asked to give a name to your Restore Point. Choose a descriptive name, for example: 'Just before installing The Monkey'.



4 - Next, click the 'Create' button (not shown) to finish the procedure. When Windows has completed creating the Restore Point it will display confirmation to you. That's all there is to it!

Restoring your PC from a previously created Restore Point:
1 - Before you try to restore your PC, make sure you have saved any work and that you close down all running programs. To run the Restore Point application click

Start | All programs | Accessories | System Tools

and then choose 'System Restore'.



2 - Click the option - 'Restore my computer to an earlier time' and then click 'Next'.

3 - You will then be presented with a calendar. Dates highlighted in bold mean that a Restore Point was created for that day. NB: Windows often creates its own Restore Points so don't worry if you see some that you didn't create yourself! Select the Restore Point you want to go back to.



4 - You will then be told that Restore Point will close down Windows and put your computer back to the state that it was before loading your software or hardware. Follow the on-screen prompts. That's all there is to it!
