Title: Need Vista help
Post by: oyehut1955 on January 17, 2012, 02:14 PM
Mt old boss did something to her computer again.. she is in her 70's, I keep telling her not to click on "free" anything  but..

So I need to set a restore point, I am not familiar with Vista.. Would one of you please tell me how to do this? I had to do it for her a year ago but I can't remember how now.

Thanks so much...
debbie

  • Click "Start Menu"
  • Click "All Programs"
  • Click "Accessories"
  • Click "System Tools"
  • Click "System Restore"
  • This will bring up the dialong to restore using one of the recommended Restore Point, an alternate restore point, or to create a new restore point.

FWIW: You don't need to set a restore point, as it sounds like the cow is alread out of the barn.  You need to fall back to an existing one that you know is "safe".
