Windows 7 Tips and Tricks - How to Create a Restore Point

When you install a new piece of computer hardware or software program on your computer, you hope that the change will be a positive one. In most cases, that software or hardware goes on your computer without a hitch, but in other cases the change will cause some serious problems.

If installing a new software program or hardware device results not in improved performance but in freezes and crashes, you can take the PC back in time to reverse those changes. But before you can restore your computer to an earlier time, you first need to create those restore points.

To create a restore point on your Windows 7 computer, just follow these simple steps.
1. Click the Start button
2. Right-click the My Computer icon
3. Choose Properties from the menu
4. Go to the left hand pane and click System Protection
5. Enter the administrator password if prompted
6. Click the System Protection tab and choose Create
7. Type a descriptive name for the restore point and click Create

Once you have created that restore point, you can use it to take your computer back in time, helping you recover from many different system problems.
