Using Microsoft Windows System Restore

The Windows operating systems provide a System Restore option which
allows you to return your computer to an earlier operating state (without
affecting data files) if changes to the hardware, software, or other system
settings have left the computer in an undesirable operating state. Any
changes that System Restore makes to your computer are completely
reversible. See the Windows Help and Support Center for information on
using System Restore. To access the Windows Help and Support Center, see
"Windows Help and Support Center" on page 14.
NOTICE:
Make regular backups of your data files. System Restore does not
monitor your data files or recover them.
NOTE:
The procedures in this document were written for the Windows default view,
so they may not apply if you set your Dell™ computer to the Windows Classic view.
