Restore is a component of Windows XP Professional that you can use to restore your computer to a previous state, if a problem occurs, without losing your personal data files (such as Microsoft Word documents, browsing history, drawings, favorites, or e-mail). System Restore monitors changes to the system and some application files, and it automatically creates easily identified restore points. These restore points allow you to revert the system to a previous time. They are created daily and at the time of significant system events (such as when an application or driver is installed). You can also create and name your own restore points at any time.


Restoring your computer does not affect or change your personal data files. For information about backing up personal data files, see Backing up files and folders.
For an overview of the other recovery technologies provided with Windows XP, see Recovering Your System.
For more information about System Restore, see Understanding System Restore.

There are lots of things that System Restore fails to do - it isn't the panacea that it was first cracked up to be.

The best thing is to make a full system backup before making any significant changes to anything in your computer - including the registry.
