Create a System Restore Point

I like creating System Restore Points prior to making changes to the Windows Vista registry. So, if I mess up then I can simply go to the System Restore Point and restore the Windows Vista registry. There may be other reasons such as installing software and driver for making System Restore points prior to the installs.

If you need to restore the computer using the System Restore point that we just created then follow my blog article called "Restore Your System/Computer Using A User Created System Restore Point". If you are having problems starting Windows Vista then you can use Windows Vista System Restore from the Windows Vista Bootable DVD to recover from startup problems, more details "Restore your Computer using the Windows Vista Bootable DVD to use System Restore".
