If changes to hardware, software, or settings have left your computer in an unstable
state, you can use System Restore to undo the changes made to your computer This might
solve the problem.
System Restore is a component of Windows XP Professional that you can use to restore your
computer to a previous state, if a problem occurs, without losing your personal data
files (such as Microsoft Word documents, browsing history, drawings, favorites, or
e-mail) System Restore monitors changes to the system and some application files, and it
automatically creates easily identified restore points These restore points allow you to
revert the system to a previous time They are created daily and at the time of
significant system events (such as when an application or driver is installed) You can
also create and name your own restore points at any time
There are three methods that you can use to access System Restore functionality.

Restore Wizard, click Start, point to Programs, point to Accessories, point to System
Tools, and then click System Restore.
