I am in the process of restoring everything to our laptop after doing a Recovery.

Are there any tips anyone can give to make this process simpler? Right now Windows Update is installing 103 updates. I have downloaded virus protection. Any other "must have" or "must do" things I should be aware of?

are you doing a complete system recovery or a system restore up to a date.

I would make a system image of your computer with all system updates and software you want at a determine point. Than for any reason you can restore up to that point.

My first statement are a examples of

System Recovery is when you restore to a factory preset or out of the box experience
System restore is when you created a restore point and you can specificity restore to that day-its easier to execute then do I system recovery.

I would download malwarebytes and regularly scan for antimare

I have spyware blocker for prevention of Malware. It not scanner its blocks Malware from messing up your host files

I did a System Recovery. My Restore points were corrupted and couldn't be used.

Thanks for the tips! Very much appreciated!

Hi,

You can use Windows 7 built-in imaging software to create an image of your computer once all updates have been applied. It's best to save the image on either an additional internal or external hard drive. It would be a good idea to also create a Windows 7 Repair CD.

See link: How to Create a System Image in Windows 7.

Regards,
Brooks

Hi MJ JB Mommy,

Don't forget to keep recent backups on an external drive or on a second computer. You can use HP Recovery Manager to create a personal set of recovery discs in the event the recovery partition become corrupt in the future.
