System Restore uses restore points to return your system files and settings to an earlier point in time without affecting personal files. Restore points are created automatically every week, and just before significant system events, such as the installation of a program or device driver. You can also create a restore point manually.

To ensure that your PC is free from errors, it is important for you to maintain a healthy registry. It is also a good idea to make regular registry backups to ensure that if there is problem in the registry, you can restore it from a backup taken earlier. You must always back up your registry before:
1. Making any major system or network configuration changes on your PC.
2. Installing or uninstalling a large application.
3. Performing direct registry edit using Registry Editor (regedit).
4. Scanning and repairing the registry using a registry cleaner.
