A new tutorial titled Windows Vista System Restore Guide was added by Bleeping Computer. Please use this topic to discuss any aspect of this tutorial.

A brief excerpt of the tutorial can be found here:

System Restore is a system recovery feature of Windows that creates snapshots,
or restore points,  of the state of your computer at various intervals
or before you perform a certain task. These restore points can then be
used to restore your computer back to the state it was in when they were taken. When these restore points are created, and restored, the only files affected
are the Windows Registry, programs, and system files. Your data such as
spreadsheets, documents, images, and music remain untouched between restores.

You may be wondering why you would want to restore your computer
to a previous point. The reason being that there comes a time in every computer
user's life that they install a new program, install a new driver, or just turn
on the computer and find it no longer works as it did the day before. You have
no idea why, can't resolve the problems, and are left with two options. You
can either backup your data, reinstall the operating system, and then reinstall
all your applications or you can restore your computer to a previous snapshot
in the hopes that the problems will now be gone. By using System Restore to
restore your computer to a previously known working state you can save considerable
time or money compared to reinstalling the entire computer.

We hope you find this tutorial helpful.
