How to fix any Windows Problems

One word : System Restore

It’s the magic trick that allows you to fix pretty much any Windows problem you may encounter.

How?

Have a problem you didn’t have before? You tried everything possible to solve it and yet,¬† still have an issue? Just restore your system to a previous date where everything was running fine. That’s it!

Of course, make sure you have automatic restore points being created and/or have created some restore points prior to any system changes, upgrade or software install.

I always recommend though to try to fix and understand the problem before restoring the system. Sometimes you’ll easily solve the issue and if you can’t, at least you’ll learn something.

Windows XP

Where

Start > All Programs > Accessories > System Tools > System Restore

Scheduled

Enjoy!
