Tips on How to Fix Windows Registry
Using Windows System Restore


Your computer’s registry is so important and there is no doubt that you should watch it over. But even when you are in guard, what if there’s still a problem? What if your computer breaks down? Well it happens sometimes whether or not you constantly take care of it because registry is like a large pile of cabinet that holds million of information of your Windows. That is why you need to create a restore point. If you create a restore point, every time your PC encounters errors you can easily revert back to the state when you created that restore point, assuming the errors happens after you created the restore point. You can find this feature in Windows 2000, XP, and Vista. How? Well let’s see how easy the process is. Just follow these steps.

1. First Thing First, Activate System Restore Feature

Right click on the 'My Computer' icon on your desktop. • Click on 'Properties' on the menu that appears.
Click on the 'System Restore' tab and you'll get this panel:
Make sure that you uncheck (if it's checked) the 'Turn off System Restore' box. That means the system restore is now turned ON.

2. Creating a System Restore Point

It is recommended to set a Restore Point before doing any activity involving your Registry, like doing a scan or repair job. So let’s learn to create one.

Access the 'System Restore Wizard' through Help and Support Center
Click on Create a Restore Point
Give it a name
Click OK. Voila, you just created a Restore Point. To restore your system from the point you just created, see below.

3. Restoring from a Restore Point

A. Now let’s say because of a single mistake you’ve done, your computer got crash. No need to hesitate. Just use system restore to turn your computer back to a point when it works perfectly – the Restore Point you have created.

Remove any disks, CDs or DVDs from your computer. • Restart/turn on the computer.
Repeatedly press the F8 key as your computer restarts. • You have to do this BEFORE the Windows logo appears.
Now highlight Last Known Good Configuration and press the Enter key. And, That is all. Incredibly easy and useful, isn’t it?

B. If your computer get srewed up but it manage to load to Windows, you can run the System Restore Wizard to have a wider range of restore point to which state you see the problem had not been occured.

To do this just access once again 'System Restore Wizard' through Help and Support Center.
Inside, choose 'Restore my computer to an earlier time' option.
You will then be provided with range of date you can choose as a restore point. Choose the best and most ideal date that you think the problem has not occured but also not too far away from this current time to minimize other problem you may trigerred by this.
You're done. Just wait untill the process complete
