Rollback - what is this?

often happens that after downloading some malware or a file infected with a virus, damaged or deleted important system data, so that your PC starts to work less or not at work.In this case, the position will help to correct a system restore or rollback.

What is this?

Rollback (systematic name of this function - Data Recovery) is the return of the operating system to a restore point that was created before the problem occurred because of damage to the operating system or its individual components.The reasons why it can be damaged, abound:

  1. system file may be "eaten" a virus, then the OS refuses to work.Or simply amazed virus program, after which it blocks or deletes antivirus.
  2. important component is removed by the user accidentally or unknowingly.
  3. was installed third-party program that harm "OSes".
  4. Downloaded Windows Update began to clash with the old, so that the computer began to "slow down" and less work.

can say that the pullback - it is like a lifeline for the user, because it is able to recover Windows 7 normal.At the same time it does not have to reinstall it.

restores the system

Go to Start, All Programs // // // Standard Tools, and click on the "System Restore."

When it opens, click "Next", and then choose from a list of restore points that which has been preserved until the problems.

If you are interested in this program which will be lost, click on the "Search programs concerned."We pass on and start the rollback.This will result in the operating system in order, however, some of the utilities or the driver will need to be reinstalled.

Through Safe Mode

often happens that some error occurs precisely during startup, so download the desktop settings and rollback is not possible.So you can go, using the "Safe Mode".

Making restart the computer and boot to Windows 7, click the button F8.It is worth noting that some laptops F1-12 keys are activated only in combination with a button switch Fn (in most cases, you can find it at the bottom left).In this case, hold down Fn and press F8.

From the list of functions, select "Safe Mode."Do not be scared screen resolution to 600x400 or 800x600, that's fine.Next, we find the System Restore in the "Start" button and follow the above instructions on how to do a rollback.

Using boot disk

happens when your computer does not enter into the turns, using the "Safe Mode", and therefore it is impossible to roll back.This is easily solved by using a boot disk.All you need - is to have it.Insert the boot disk in the disk drive, restart your computer.If the drive is not a priority, ie. E. Is not the first place in the list of priority start, go into the BIOS in the Boot, and put it in the first place, save, and go from there.When you start "ustanovochnik" Windows 7, put the Russian language (although it can be different), and click the bottom left box shows "System Restore."From the list again, select "System Restore" and then go through the procedure already known and do roll back updates and settings.

By the way, if there is a bootable flash drive, the procedure for the treatment of the same, only the boot priority will need to put it.

create a restore point

Restore your computer is possible only if the saved restore points.If it is not - it is a problem, because the rollback will fail.Therefore it is necessary to create it.

click the right on the icon "My Computer" (if this is not your desktop, then open the "Start" menu and make it there) and select "Properties."

In the "Toolbars" on the right side click on the section "System Protection" and look at the sign displaying discs.

If the opposite of a disk (basically the system) there is the inscription "ON", then do not worry, because the function of preserving the point of returning there.If there is "Disabled", click "Customize".They put the switch on the item "Restore system settings and previous versions of files."A bottom choose the size of disk space (preferably take at least 1.5-2 GB).Click "Apply" and "OK."You can also create a return label manually.To do this, click "Start," as some call it, and you're done.

Now copy the system from time to time continue, and perhaps will be rolled back.It's a good news.But there is a small nuance.Security settings will be retained in preference to installing some programs and are constantly interchanged when new save is not enough space.Therefore it is better to take this step 5-10 gigabytes (it all depends on the capabilities of the disk) to return to the list were more tags with an earlier date.

Create automatic

can make data recovery remained on schedule.The easiest way to do this is as follows:

  • Press Win + R, or open the "Start" button and write in the search for "Run."
  • Line write taskschd.msc, click OK.Open scheduler.
  • tree on the left side open the Library \\ Microsoft \\ Windows \\ SystemRestore.We click twice on the file SR.

  • turn to the tab "triggers", select the target and click edit.It set up a schedule at its discretion (for example, one set to trigger the creation of a weekly every Saturday at 0 hours, and the second - when you turn on the computer).
  • Then go to the tab "Terms" and set some conditions for creating an automatic save points.If they do not need, you can turn them off.

Now you can not worry about the presence of a recovery point, and how to roll back the system to "Vindovs."
