Exercise 1 - Using System Restore

A restore point in Windows is a copy of the system configuration, which can be taken either manually or automatically. There are three ways in which a restore point can be created:

You can configure Windows to create a restore point automatically. In this method, no manual intervention is required by the user. You can create a restore point manually. This method is recommended when you are about to make system-level changes, such as installing or updating a device driver. When installing an application, a restore point is created automatically. This is done to ensure that if the installation of the application fails, the system can revert to the previous settings.

Windows could become unstable due to an incompatible driver or malware. You can use system restore to revert back to normal working Windows.

In this exercise, you will learn to use system restore.
