Windows 7 – How to create a System Restore point

Windows 7 has a feature called System Restore which automatically backs up registry and system files whenever you install new software or drivers.

It can be used to repair a system which has become slow or unstable since installing new software or hardware.

Most applications will automatically create a restore point, however if you’re unsure about the reliability of the software you may want to manually create a restore point before continuing.

To manually create a restore point:

  1. Open up the Start Menu and right-click on ‘Computer’  then select ‘Properties’
  2. Select ‘System proection’ from the left hand list
  3. Click on the ‘Create’ button
  4. Enter a description for the restore point, for example Restore Point Before Installing Update
  5. Click on the ‘Create’ button
  6. Windows will begin creating the restore point
  7. When finished, click the ‘Close’ button then ‘OK’ to close the window
