How to restore your computer

Computers are configured to download and install updates automatically. As good as updates are, they could also pose huge problems to computer users since most of the updates downloaded and installed are not known to the users. Computers sometimes become slow or give the wrong result to an instruction, e.g pressing the shift+2 keys and getting the # symbol instead of the @ symbol. Program installations done by a computer user can also affect the performance of the computer in the way explained above.

When a system suddenly becomes slow, the cause is usually difficult to find especially if it is caused by system updates. In the event that you experience such, one of the most effective ways of solving such problem is through system recovery.

System recovery helps restore your computer to an earlier state. It returns your computer to the state it was when everything was good by simply removing all programs installed after the date chosen as the restore point.

See here for how to create a restore point.

What is a restore point? A restore point is the point chosen automatically by the system or the system owner when creating a restore point.  To restore your computer to a previously created restore point, follow the steps below:’
>>Click on search in type in control panel.
>>Click on recovery
>>Click on open system restore
>>Select the point earlier created by you or you can choose the one created by the computer.

Your computer will be restored to the state it was when everything was good.

  • This is nightmare of every PC user - risk of losing data, uninstalling the half of programms. Meh.

    • You are right, Graham but you can also click on the button that shows you all the programs that will be affected. That way, you know whether to go on or chose a different restore point.
