System Restore

System Restore and It's Importance

System Restore must be disabled while you are in the process of removing Spyware. This feature should be disabled and then re-enabled. The reason this is important for this is; if your spend an hour removing all the Spyware on your computer and you never disable System Restore if your computer were to crash tomorrow you would be restoring it with all the computer Spyware that you just spent all that time removing. By disabling while you remove Spyware and then re-enabling it once you are done this task it will leave your system restored at a clean point in operation. Our instructions come directly from Microsoft’s website to ensure quality.



This section explains how to enable and disable the System Restore feature in Windows Millennium Edition (Me).

CAUTION: Disabling System Restore removes all previous restore points. To continue to use System Restore in restoring your computer to a previous point, do not disable System Restore.


The System Restore feature is enabled by default. To disable System Restore:

  1. Right-click My Computer, and then click Properties.
  2. On the Performance tab, click File System, or press ALT+F.
  3. On the Troubleshooting tab, click to select the Disable System Restore check box.
  4. Click OK twice, and then click Yes when you are prompted to restart the computer.
  5. To re-enable System Restore, follow steps 1-3, but in step 3, click to clear the Disable System Restore check box.

System Restore is the feature that allows a computer system to be rolled back, or restored, to a point before certain events took place. For example, prior to specific software or hardware installations. System Restore is a powerful tool that in most cases, should not be disabled unless you are removing Spyware. It is very important to re-enable System Restore after you have removed Spyware.



This section describes how to turn on and turn off System Restore in Microsoft Windows XP.

CAUTION: When you turn off System Restore, all existing restore points are removed, and you are no longer able to track or undo changes to your computer. To continue to use System Restore in restoring your computer to a previous state(meaning an operational state), do not turn off System Restore.


By using the System Restore feature, a computer system can be restored (rolled back) to a time before certain events occurred. For example, the computer may be restored to a time before specific software or hardware installations were completed. System Restore monitors changes to the computer and to some program files, and automatically creates restore points. You can also create your own restore points whenever you want to.
