Windows 7 : Restoring your Computer

Sometimes that change may make your system unstable due to incompatibilities or conflicts amongst files of the newly installed program & older files.The system may also start not responding and you may start getting error messages like “application is not responding.Restart”

In this situation you can use a feature of Windows “System Restore” to restore the original state of your Operating system.Every time you are about to do a major change in your OS  it makes a check point prior to it.These check points are referred to as Restore points in Windows.System Restore which is very similar to an undo command takes your computer to any previous checkpoint and rollback the changes next to that checkpoint.However it does not affect your document files.Here is a Tutorial how to restore your computer in Windows 7.
