Every install of new software or every change to your system can be defined as restore point in Windows, which records your system configuration before the change. The system restore can be used as Undo for windows changes. If something goes wrong you can always undo last good system configuration. System Restore shouldn't affect any of your data, only your system configuration, and in any case, the changes you make are completely reversible. DetectorPro recommend turning on System Restore to automatically create restore points daily and manually before installing new programs.

This post is short tutorial about activating and using System Restore in you daily computer job:

1. To access System Restore, click Start > All Programs > Accessories > System Tools > System Restore. If you have System Restore turned on, you'll be presented with a calendar showing available restore points. If not, you can choose to create one before you install a new app.

2. If you've been using System Restore and suspect you've accidentally downloaded any suspect software as spyware or computer virus, just select the most recent available restore point. Remember, this will undo all changes made to your system, including any software updates, though it won't delete documents you've created since the restore point. You can always try again with an earlier restore point.

3. If you're about to download software that might be suspicious and you don't have System Restore turned on, just create a restore point before you install. Click System Restore, then Start > All Programs > Accessories > System Tools > System Restore, and choose "Create a restore point." Follow the prompts and install without fear. If something goes wrong immediately or after a few days, just restore to the point you created.

4. Once you fix your system with restore point, you may want to delete your saved restore points. To do this, right-click the My Computer icon on your desktop, click the System Restore tab, click the check box next to "Turn off System Restore on all drives." Click OK, and then repeat the process, unchecking the box to turn System Restore back on.
