Using the System Restore Wizard

The System Restore Wizard guides you through the steps of each task in System Restore.

When you run the wizard to restore your computer to an earlier state, it displays the following screens:

Welcome to System Restore

This screen gives you the option to restore your computer to an earlier time or state.

Select a Restore Point

This screen allows you to pick a date on the calendar and then select a restore point to restore your computer to an earlier state.

Confirm Restore Point selection

This screen allows you to change your mind about the selected restore point or the restoration and to save all files and close all programs before starting the restoration. After you confirm the selection, the restoration process starts, the system restarts, and a user logon screen is displayed.

Restoration Complete

This screen indicates your restoration has been successful. If the restoration fails, the Restoration was unsuccessful screen is displayed, and no changes are made to your computer.
