40. SYSTEM RESTORE: Restores your system to a previous date.

System Restore only affects program and system files, such as those ending in .exe and .dll. Files you have created like .jpeg .doc, .xls and .ppt. are not changed. Any Documents, photos, email etc. are ignored.

When your computer starts screwing up do this immediately, go back a few days when your computer was working OK and restore to that date.

Go to Start, Programs, Accessories, System Tools, System Restore and pick a Bold date when your computer was working OK.

Click on Restore my computer to an earlier time, click on Next and the Restore Points will appear on the calendar in BOLD numbers. Click one of the BOLD dates and click on Next.

This is the greatest thing since sliced bread.
