Back up important files
First thing you need to do is to back up all your important files and folders before performing a system restore. The point at which the system needs to be restored can be assigned by the user or will be set by the function of the operating system. It should be noted that the system restore cannot be used to retrieve data that is lost by means of deleting or removing permanently. The files on the Registry, Windows File Protection folder, local profiles etc should be backed up ahead of performing the system Restore on the Windows XP operating system.
Need for a system restore
The system restore is used to return the system to a preceding state where the system is free of errors. This is done by means of ‘System Restore’ that is provided by Windows. Infection from malware or the corruption of the needed registry files would result in severe harm to the system and at such point the system might be best restored to a previous point. The process can be completed in simple steps; the ‘System Restore’ is available inside the ‘System Tools’ in the ‘Start’ menu.
Once the program is opened, you can navigate among the date where the screen shot was taken for the system restore points. You should choose a suitable date and then confirm the restore point. The restoration process will execute the process and the system will be reverted to the previous state. Now the computer will restart and the system will be set to its previous known date. If the system has serious error, then you can power up the system through the safe mode and restore the system to a previous state on Windows XP.
