Hello Pazuzu and welcome to Bleeping Computer. :thumbsup:

Here you go.

Bleeping Computer's - Windows XP System Restore Guide

You should first go into the Control Panel and then double click on the System icon. If you are in the control panel and do not see the System icon, click on the link that says "Switch to classic view" in the upper left hand side of the window. Now you should be able to see the System icon. After you double click on it you should then click on the System Restore tab.

I hope this helps you.

Just be sure to enable system restore once you are finished. Since by disabling it you wll lose all your restore points.

Hello Pazuzu and welcome to BC.

If you wanted to start a New Topic about your question you would go to the Windows XP Home and Professional forum and click on New Topic in the upper right hand side of the page. After you type out your message you then click on "Post new topic". You can also use the Spell Checker and the "Preview Post" functions to make sure you have it right.
