System Restore 2:50-3:49 For our purposes though, we want to look at some of our less drastic approaches. For example, using System Restore. One of the best options for repairing Windows problems, is to actually use a restore point. The idea here, is that we want to pick a restore point that was created before the system started having problems. That should restore all of our system configurations to the state they were in when the system was running properly. To do this, we just click on System Restore, and then we choose the operating system. There's only one on this hard disk, Windows 10. And in the Welcome screen, we click Next, and then I could select the restore point that I want to use from the list of available restore points. This is a lab system, so it's only go one real restore point. On a Windows System that's been in production for quite some time, you'll have many many restore points to choose from. We've already talked about how to use system restore in a different demonstration, so I'm not actually going to go through the entire process here. Just understand that you can pick a restore point that was created before your system started having problems. And you would come down here and click Next, and then restore that restore point. Startup Repair Options 3:50-5:10 I'm going to click Cancel. Let's go back to the Troubleshoot options here, and go back to Advanced options. There are other options as well for trying to troubleshoot system issues. For example, if the system won't boot properly, you can also use the Startup Repair option. Basically this utility will go through and look at all of your startup files, the files that are needed to get Windows up and running, and see if it can find any problems, see if there's a file that's missing or a file that's corrupt or had been altered by malware or something like that, and replace it with a known good copy. Let's go ahead and click on that option. Choose the target operating system. In this case it's Windows 10. And then we'll sit and wait while Windows goes through and diagnoses the system files, trying to find any that aren't functioning the way they should.

Now this system is actually running properly, so the Startup Repair utility couldn't actually find any issues. But if it had, it would've automatically repaired them, and gotten the system back into a statewhere it could boot up. Now for our purposes, we want to go back to Advanced options, and go back to Troubleshoot, and Advanced options one more time. So these two options, System Restore and Startup Repair, are pretty gentle options for repairing a Windows system. If these two options don't fix the issue, then the next level, if you will, in aggressiveness is to go to a System Image Rrecovery.

    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.
