Using System Restore

Windows XP and Windows Me offer a component called System Restore. If you have a serious problem with your computer (actually, with the operating system), you can restore your operating system to a previous state. Your data remains intact.

System Restore monitors the operating system files and program files you install, and periodically writes a copy of the system's setup and configuration to a set of files. That set of files is called a restore point. If something goes amiss, you can tell Windows to go back to a previous restore point.
