3. Click the System Protection tab, then click Create.
4. Type a name for the restore point.

5. If System Restore is OFF, do this:
    A. Click the local drive on which to create the Restore Point.
    B. Click Apply.
    C. Click Create.

Windows XP
1. Click Start.
2. Click Run.
3. Type %SystemRoot%system32restorerstrui.exe.

8. Click Create.
9. When the restore point has been created, click Close.
