Let's go ahead and click Next, so we have a couple of different restore points we can pick from. We had one that was created before we installed a new video adapter, and we have this one here that was created before we installed Audacity. Let's use that one, we'll click Next. It tells us the time that the restore point was created. It tells us what drive will be affected by the restore point Here's a nice little link right here that a lot of people overlook and that is a Scan for Affected Programs. It's going to tell us what's going to be affected if we restore this restore point. Note here that it tells us that the Audacity program is going to be deleted from the system, because it was installed after the restore point was created and down here it tells us what might be restoredwhen we restore that restore point. If I had an application installed, I took the restore point, and then in uninstalled that application, because I'm reverting it, that applications going to come back, so let's click Close, let's go ahead and click Finish, because it will do what it is we want to do, and that is remove that application from the system by jumping back to a system state at a point in time before that application was installed. Okay and it warns us, that once you start System Restore, you can't interrupt it, so you have to just let it run. I'm going to click Yes, and now we'll just sit back and wait while System Restore does its job. I'm going to pause the recording, and we'll come back when it's complete. Okay my restore point has been restored, and the system has rebooted, and I've logged back in, and when I do, I see this message here that tells me that the Restore Operation completed successfully, and the system has been restored to the state it was in at this particular time when the restore point was created, and also notice that it tells me that my documents have not been affected. Revert to a Restore Point 10:13-12:48 Notice that something is missing over here however, and that's the Audacity icon, and so if I come down here and type Audacity, I have to search the web to find Audacity because I don't have anything installed on this system named Audacity, and if I come over here, and go into My Documents folder,the bitmap image that we created after the restore point was created, is still there, it hasn't been altered, so my end user data was not touched, but the application was, so that's the first option for reverting to a restore point. Again, we were assuming that the system was bootable. If the system is not bootable, then this option obviously won't work, because you can't get the system up and running, so you can't load System in Control Panel, right? So are you out of luck if that's the case, if the system won't boot up? Nope, you can boot the system off of your Windows installation media and enter into the recoveryenvironment and restore a restore point from there as well. Let's take a look at how that's done.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
