While using Windows operating system, you may need to install/uninstall many software programs, make some changes in Windows registry, edit Windows settings, etc. Sometimes, due to the modifications you have made in Windows registry or Windows settings, you may experience some problem in Windows. For example, Windows starts hanging up when you save any document, close any application, or perform any other action. Whenever you face such issues after performing actions like Editing Windows registry, installing/uninstalling any software program, etc. then you should restore the Windows.

Whenever you install/uninstall any software program in Windows, edit Windows registry, or perform any other action then Windows take a snapshot of that action and create a restore point based on the date on which the action is performed. When you perform Windows restore at a selected restore point then Windows abolishes the changes made after that restore point. In this way, the problem gets resolved after a Windows restore. This feature allows users to restore the Windows installation to its last working stage with the help of restore points (snapshots of program files, system files, hardware drivers, registry settings, etc.)

Though Windows create restore points automatically once a week, users can also create them for a specific drive themselves by visiting the System Protection tab on the System Properties page.

However, performing Windows restore was not an easy task in Windows operating systems before Windows 7. Only an experienced computer user can perform Windows restore in Windows operating systems before Windows 7 because it was a long and typical process. But in Windows 7 performing Windows restore is very simple and fast. One can easily restore Windows 7 by executing the following steps:

  1. Click Start and point to Computer.
  2. Right click Computer > and select Properties.
  3. Select System Protection > System Restore > Next.
  4. Note: Another way to reach the System Restore option on the System Properties page is by clicking on the System option in the Control Panel, then selecting the System Protection option from the left panel, and then clicking the System Restore option under the System Restore section. Or users can directly search the System Restore program in the search bar from the Start menu.

  5. Now, choose the Restore point on which you want to restore the system.
  6. Click the New button to perform a Scan for affected programs.
  7. Follow the instructions to move further and then the system will be shut down and restart automatically with the message that System Restore is completed successfully.
  8. Note: The System Restore option also occurs under the System Recovery Options when uses boot the system in safe mode, i.e. in Windows Recovery Environment by pressing the F8 key. Also, when booting the system with safe mode and launching Command Prompt, the System Restore page can be opened using these commands.

    On the Command Prompt, first, run this command.

    cd restore

    Next, run this command.


    It will open the System Restore dialogue box directly.

However, Windows restore is a good solution for you to get rid of the problems like Windows hang up but sometimes due to improper installation or un-installation of software programs, Windows might get corrupt. In that situation, you need to reinstall the Windows that may lead into data loss. During the Windows installation the selected hard disk partition gets formatted due to which Windows erase all of the data stored on it. But, you do not need to worry about that because you can recover all of the data even after the Windows reinstallation.
