Vista System Restore

Friday, April 27th, 2007 by | Filed Under: System Tune-Up Help

Vista System Restore

Are you one of the many computer users who went from using Windows XP to Windows Vista? It seems to be “the thing to do” these days, but let’s be honest here. Are you having trouble finding some of the things you absolutely loved using in XP? How about the system restore feature, for example? I know that’s one of my favorites, but it’s so difficult to find in Vista. Well, today I’m going to give you the lowdown on how you can easily find it and start using it once again!

To get to the system restore window, right click on the Computer icon on your desktop and choose Properties. From there, click on the System Protection link on the left hand side. Another box will come up asking you if you want to continue on or cancel. Click Continue and then make sure you’re under the System Protection tab. At the top of the window, there’s a link you can click on to learn about how much disk space you need to do a system restore, etc. You can do that if you’d like or you can just move on.

To do an actual system restore, just click on the System Restore button and go through the process. Or, if you’d like to create your own restore point, click on the Create button. Type in a few key words for the point you’d like to go back to and then hit Create again. Go through the steps and you’ll be all set. In the middle of the window, you’re able to see all of the restores you’ve done in the past. So, if this is your first time, you’ll see all of them the next time you go in to do a system restore. When you’re all done, click OK and you’ll be good to go. So, from now on, you don’t have to worry about not being able to find the system restore option in Windows Vista. Just refer back to this tip for the scoop!
