I am confused on what exactly SYSTEM RESTORE DOES.
My friend has Windows Xp on a Laptop with 512 ram and is having problem and has gotten worse from the time we started to fix the original problem. If we were to SYSTEM STORE back to say 3 days previous, WHAT EXACTLY does that do??
We have updated and changed Windows Media Player.
We have installed SP2, then deleted, then returned back to SP1
If use SYSTEM RESTORE, will all the following be now lost??
- Windows Media Player upgrade and changes
- new programs that were installed (ie. adware scanners that were 3 days ago it was NOT installed)
- MSN files that were uploaded...
I would ask that she SYSTEM RESTORES back to the day the original problem occured but am worried she will LOSE all the programs and updates that happened since then as I'm not too sure what System Restore does and does not do.
ALSO. If we restore back say 3 days and for whatever reason we want to just go BACK to before the restore, can we do that with NO PROBLEMS? I don't want to interfere with her Wireless Internet connections or settings.
