Restore System Windows XP

Restore System Windows XP Computer Repair

If you are a Windows XP user, you should perform a system restore if you are experiencing frequent problems with the system but do not want to initiate a complete re-installation. This will restore your system to complete functionality without erasing any of your data files. Remember: With a system restore, you cannot pick and choose which files to restore; it automatically restores the entire system for you. A system restore can be completed in several fairly simple steps.

When preparing to complete a system restore, first make sure you have at least 200MB of free disk space. This space will be used to create a date store. The next step would be to pick a restore point. Windows XP helps you out with this by automatically creating restore points where you would typically need them most. However, if you would like to create your own point at a specific place, click on Start > All Programs > Accessories > System Tools > System Restore, and enter where you want to create a restore point.

Next, you can begin your restore. Open the program, and choose “Restore my computer to an earlier time.” You will then be prompted to choose your restore point on a calendar they will provide for you. Make sure to choose the right point because the wrong point could result in a loss of data files. Look for the restore points that are called “System Checkpoint,” these are the points that system restore created for you.

Once you select your restore point, click “Next” and the program will prompt you to confirm the point. If you are sure this is where you would like to restore the system, proceed with the restore. If successful, your computer will reboot and turn back on with a screen confirming the success of the system restore.

 If, however, your problems still occur post-system restore, the program gives you an opportunity to choose a new point and try again. This is helpful because it gives you a chance to correct any mistakes you might have made the first time around. If after multiple tries you’re still experiencing significant problems, contact your manufacturer or call a local professional to assist you.
