Margaret isn't really confused, my version of XP Home also has System
Restore, and I have used it a couple of times.
It is not a 3rd party version or a system backup. I have a built from
scratch computer, not a Dell or any other brand.
- One important extra about Restore points – data is NOT LOST ! Although it
restores earlier programme settings etc. the associated data remains. It
really is good!

Pick CREATE A RESTORE POINT
On the next screen type in a reminder like "System is Broken".
Finish the wizard.
Now do it all again and this time pick RESTORE MY COMPUTER TO AN EARLIER
When the calendar comes up pick a darkened date that the system was working
correctly and restore your system to that day.
Note, any changes to your system since that day will not show.
The ability to restore your system to an earlier time is the one most
important aspect of XP Pro and is not available with the Home edition.
The system will create restore points for you when you install new software,
and every day or so but it is a good idea to create one yourself every once
in awhile when your system is performing just the way you want it to.
The number of restore points it will save depends on the size of your hard
You do not need to enter the time and date in your description, it is done
automatically for you.
You can turn around and restore it back to the "System is Broken" restore
point and continue as you are right now, or pick any other restore point
that you think might work. You can go back and forth with no problem.
You can get your system totally balled up and restore it to yesterday or an
hour ago with not much more than a reboot if you create a restore point
before you try new things.
If you have ever screwed up your system with 98 or 2K and spent a couple of
days trying to get it back, those days are over with XP Pro.
You can change your Restore Settings at CONTROL PANEL>SYSTEM>SYSTEM RESTORE
You can put a shortcut to it on your desktop by creating a shortcut to
