How to use system restore to fix common computer problems

System Restore to fix common computer problems

As computer users, we may encounter various issues that affect our system’s stability and performance. Fortunately, Windows provides a built-in feature called System Restore that can help resolve many common computer problems. System Restore allows you to roll back your computer’s settings to a previous state, undoing recent changes that may have caused issues. In this blog, we will explore how to use System Restore effectively to troubleshoot and fix common computer problems.

Before proceeding with System Restore, it’s important to note that it does not affect your personal files but may uninstall recently installed programs or updates. Additionally, System Restore is available only on Windows operating systems.

Here’s a step-by-step guide on using System Restore to fix common computer problems:

open System Restore

  • Click on the Start menu, search for “System Restore,” and select “Create a restore point” from the results.
  • In the System Properties window, click on the “System Protection” tab.
  • Click on the “System Restore” button to launch the System Restore wizard.

Choose a Restore Point

  • In the System Restore wizard, you’ll see a list of available restore points based on previous system changes and created restore points. Choose a restore point that precedes the occurrence of the computer problem you want to fix.
  • You can click on the “Scan for affected programs” button to see a list of programs that will be affected by the restore point you select. This can help you assess the potential impact of the restoration on your system.

Start the Restoration Process

  • Once you’ve selected a restore point, click on the “Next” button to proceed.
  • Review the restore point details and confirm your selection.
  • Click on the “Finish” button to start the restoration process. Your computer will restart, and the restoration will begin.

Wait for the Restoration to Complete

  • The restoration process may take some time, depending on your system’s configuration and the chosen restore point. Your computer will restart multiple times during the process.
  • It’s important not to interrupt the restoration process or turn off your computer to avoid potential data corruption

Verify the Results

  • After the restoration process is complete, your computer will boot up to the restored state.
  • Check if the common computer problem you were experiencing has been resolved.
  • It’s recommended to test your system thoroughly to ensure stability and functionality
