If you are using Windows 7 operating system and having some issues with computer performance due to recent changes you have made, system restore is one of the best option to turn back your computer to the previous working point where everything was working well. Sometime, you may install some software in your computer and later on, those may make your computer to response slow or even your computer may become freeze. In this situation, you may try to uninstall that software to recover this issue but the problem may still alive. My recommendation is to perform System Restore which it is very effective solution and will save your valuable time from troubleshooting long hours.
What is System Restore?
A recovery tool or process in Windows operating system that turns back any changes of windows settings, system files, programs to a previous state. Keep in mind, if you delete any files or data, system restore will not restore those. So it is important to save any valuable files or data to an external drive to keep safe.
How to perform System Restore?
If you have not make any changes to turn off System protection, your system should have automatically set to restore system settings on. I am assuming you have System Restore settings turn on. Here are the step by step instructions on how to perform system restore for Windows 7.
Step 1: Type ‘System Restore’ in the Windows Start search box and hit Enter. You also can access through; Start-> All Programs – > Accessories -> System Tools – System Restore
Step 2: Click Next button on the system Restore window to see all restore points
Step 3: You can see more restore points when you check ‘Show more restore points’. Now select a date that you think your computer was performing well and click Next
Step 4: Click Finish on the Confirm your restore point window and then click Yes on the warning message window.
Step 5: System restore will start by logging off your computer and it will give you a wait message until finish the restore process.
Step 6: When the restore will be completed, you will get a successful message with restored dated. When you click on Close, you will get your restored system back.
