Creating a system restore point

System restore helps you revert back your computer state (including system files, installed applications, Windows registry, and settings) to that of an earlier time where your system was working properly in order to recover the system from malfunctions or other problems.

Sometimes, the installed program or a driver creates an unexpected error to your system or causes Windows to behave unpredictably. Usually uninstalling the program or driver helps in fixing the problem but if that doesn’t fix the issue then you can try restoring your system to an earlier date when everything worked correctly.
