I Messed Up, Now What?

Go Back In Time

In a previous lesson we learned how to set a restore point in case things went wrong.

Before we start tweaking things we should know how to use that restore point to return from any troubles. So now we are going to learn how to use that information to effectively “turn back the hands of time” and remove any tweaks that we may have applied that really just made things worse rather than better.

Here is what you would do.


In Windows XP…

Click the “Restore my computer to an earlier time” radio button and then click the “Next” button.

Click the “Restore my computer to an earlier time” radio button and then click the “Next” button.

Select the restore point of your choice and click on the “Next” button.

This action will bring you to a screen explaining what will happen next and advising you to save any open work and to close any running programs. Follow the instructions and click on the “Next” button.

Your computer will reboot and present you with a screen explaining that it has just performed a restore, click on “OK” and you are good to go.

In Windows Vista…

Choose either the “Recommended restore” radio button or the “Choose a different restore point” radio button, click the “Next” button you will see a list of restore points available, click on one of them, then you will have to confirm that you want to do this and then restart the computer.

Good luck,
