Summary

Windows XP gives you several avenues of recovery, depending on the situation. By using simple techniques such as starting in Safe Mode or using Device Driver Rollback, you can lick most common problems. Using the System Restore feature can also be a great benefit, since the system applications and settings are restored to a specific point in time where you were certain everything was working as it should, and you don't have to lose any data you have created between restore points.

Using the ASR tool is perhaps the most important action for you to consider. If you believe a regular backup will take care of all of your needs, then you may be misguiding yourself. ASR is the last resort, but it works. That is why it was presented first in this chapter. ASR can recover the system when all other methods fail.
