System Restore helps you restore your computer's system files to an earlier point in time. It's a way to undo system changes to your computer without affecting your personal files, such as e-mail, documents, or photos.

System Restore uses a feature called System Protection to regularly create and save restore points on your computer. These restore points contain information about registry settings and other system information that Windows uses. The System Restore program created restore points every day, and whenever you installed a new hotfix, service pack or even (some) applications. You could also create restore points manually (see later in this article).
