This book would not be complete without mention of System Restore. System Restore is a feature of Windows 7 that creates and automatically stores information about your computer so that if something goes wrong, you can revert to a time when all was well. System Restore points are created automatically each day and, in many instances, before a potentially damaging piece of software, update, driver, or application is installed. You can also manually create a restore point, if you think you’re about to do something risky. The System Restore interface is shown in Figure 13-11. You’re probably aware of System Restore, so I’m not going to discuss how to use it. What I will discuss is how to tweak the settings.
