This post describes how to use the System Restore tool to return your computer to a previous working state.

You can use these restore points to return Windows XP to a previous state.

Follow the steps:

2. Click Start , point to All Programs , point to Accessories , point to System Tools , and then click System Restore . System Restore starts.
3. On the Welcome to System Restore page, click Restore my computer to an earlier time (if it is not already selected), and then click Next .
4. On the Select a Restore Point page, click the most recent system checkpoint in the On this list, click a restore point list, and then click Next . A System Restore message may appear that lists configuration changes that System Restore will make. Click OK .
5. On the Confirm Restore Point Selection page, click Next . System Restore restores the previous Windows XP configuration, and then restarts the computer.
6. Log on to the computer as Administrator. The System Restore Restoration Complete page appears.
7. Click OK .
