Windows 7: How to do System Restore
We have already seen in the earlier post, how to create a system restore point. Today, we are going to see how to do system restore using the system restore points we created. This is simply bringing back the computer settings to the stage, what it is, before the system restore point is created.
There are two cases to do this system restore.
Case 1: If you’re able to boot and login to Windows 7.
Start at the “Control Panel”, then select “System and Security”
Select “Action Center”.
You can begin the system restore operation with the following:
Click on “Open System Restore” button.
“Restore System Files and Settings”. Click on Next.
One has to determine which restore point is the preferred one to use.
If those are not enough, one can choose others. Check the checkbox “Show More Restore Points”. You have additional restore points available.
Confirm Your Restore Point.
Click on Finish. After this, your computer settings will be restored back before the system restore point, although all the files you created after the restore point will remain intact.
Case 2: If the computer is unable to boot.
After a restart or when the computer is starting, press F8 continuously. If you’re using dual booting, you can do this when you are presented with the boot manager and after selecting the operating system of your choice.
This will take you into a Repair Boot mode on the System Recovery Options Menu. From here just click, “System Restore” and follow Case 1 steps, which are relevant to you.
Very Simple! This process is used when there is trouble after installing any software or you feel that your computer is not working as usual etc.
