Have you ever regretted not installing a driver? How many times have you wished to turn back time and apply settings that were once applied? It doesn’t matter how careful you are because when it comes to the installation of new drivers in Windows 7, there will be times when you need to perform a system restoration to safeguard against problems that will come up due to either the device driver or the program. Create a system restore point to allow your computer get back to its healthy point, functioning in a state that it was in prior to the new installation.
How To Create a System Restore Point Manually
Go the Start menu and right-click on Computer. Choose the Properties option.
On the left-hand side, there will be an option System Protection. Click on it.
To access the System Protection tab directly, click Start and type SystemPropertiesProtection.exe in the Start search bar. Something like this will show up:
If a prompt comes up for an User Account Control, click on Continue.
Click the System Protection tab and then follow it up by clicking on create.
Give a proper name to the new system restore point and your process will be complete.
How To Create a System Restore Point with a Shortcut
To create a system restore point using a shortcut, follow the below mentioned steps.
Open Notepad and copy the content pasted below on to it:
set SRP = getobject(“winmgmts:\\.\root\default:Systemrestore”)
CSRP = SRP.createrestorepoint (“Created a Restore Point now”, 0, 100)
If CSRP <> 0 then
Msgbox “Error ” & CSRP & “: Unable to create System Restore point”
Right-click on the desktop and select New and then click on Shortcut. Here’s what the location should be: wscript.exe C:\systemrestore.vbs (you may change the drive according to your own preference).
Run the script in elevated mode. Right-click on the shortcut and choose Run as Administrator. When you are asked for a password or confirmation, just the password and confirm it. This will create a System Restore Point.
