Recovering from Disaster

Most of the time your computing experience will be just great, with no crashes or disasters of any kind. However, I won't kid you; disasters do happen. Because of all the hardware and software on your computer, files you download from here, there, and everywhere (including destructive viruses) and new versions of software bringing new settings and files, conflicts occur that can cause you to lose data or, in extreme cases, not even be able to get your computer to function. Several programs are included with your HP Pavilion that give you a disaster safety net.

Going Back in Time with System Restore

One utility that is part of Windows XP is called System Restore. You can use this program to restore your computer to some time in the past, for example, one hour ago or last Tuesday. System Restore creates automatic restore points, and you can select which one will suit your purposes or create your own. Then, you can go back to those computer settings to undo some change you may have made that resulted in a problem.
