by Barbara J. Feldman on December 10, 2002

The System Restore feature of Windows XP allows users to restore their operating system to an earlier (working) state. It is a good idea to get in the habit of creating a System Restore Point before installing new software, so you can go backwards if anything goes wrong.

In the System Restore Wizard, click “Create a restore point” / Next; give it a descriptive title; and choose Create.
