Just got finished doing a spring clean with Tweaknow reg cleaner pro, Ccleaner, disc cleanup, and defrag of HDD. I have read some where before but can't find it at the moment, that I should create a system restore point along with getting rid of all but my last restore point. Is this true, and if it is, what is the correct procedure for creating my own restore point? Any advice would be appreciated as well as bookmarked for future reference, thanks. J.B.
You can get rid of all your old restore points by switching off System Restore, and then switching it back on again. It does mean that, for a few minutes, you'll have no restore points, but it depends on how nervous that makes you. To do this, go to Start>Control Panel>Performance & Maintenance>System. Click the System Restore tab, and then check the box marked "Turn off System Restore on all drives". Click Apply>OK. The computer will then delete all old restore points and restart itself. Now go through the above procedure again, and this time uncheck the "Turn off System Restore..." checkbox. Now restart the computer again. The system should now automatically create a new System Checkpoint. But for your peace of mind you might want to check this, and also create one for yourself if you want to, by following the route recommended by terryf and VoG above.
Thankyou very much for the information, I think Iwill leave all system restore points alone and just create one myself showing the system cleanup I did earlier, that should suffice for the present time. J.B.
