When­ever you carry out an ac­tiv­ity that may put your PC at risk (for ex­am­ple, down­load­ing a pro­gram or up­dat­ing to a new ver­sion of Win­dows) we al­ways rec­om­mend you cre­ate a sys­tem re­store point. This lets you roll your PC back to an ear­lier sys­tem ver­sion with­out af­fect­ing any of your per­sonal data or files.

We’ll ex­plain how to cre­ate a re­store point, then how to re­turn your PC to that point. To open Sys­tem Re­store press the Win­dows key, type re­store point, then click ‘Cre­ate a re­store point’.
