Posted by John Larkin - April 14, 2014

Since April 8th this year, Windows XP which served a lot of people all around the world for thirteen years has become a story. Most of those Windows XP supporters update their systems to Windows 7 or Windows 8 which provides greater and more performance. However, some people may find it inconvenient and unlike to do a system restore when necessary in Windows 7 or Windows 8. Actually, this new system contains a similar function that you can create your own desired restore point as well. In this post, we will list guides to make a customized system restore point in Windows 7 and Windows 8. Please read on.

Steps to Create a Restore Point in Windows 7 and Windows 8

Step one– Go to Control Panel

In Windows 7
Click Start menu, and select Control Panel

In Windows 8
Hit Winkey and C to activate the Charms bar, select Settings. And click Control Panel

Step two– Click System and Security

Step three– Click System

Step four– Choose System protection in the left pane

Step five– Select Create

Or you can click Configure first to change restore settings

Step six– In the pop-up window, type a description of your restore point and click Create

After creating the restore point, we can do a system restore when the computer runs rather slowly to clean up unwanted files or programs downloaded or installed after the restore point. It saves more time and system space than that of the system’s default Backup and Restore.

"My laptop was so slow and got random blue screen error. I didn't know whom to turn to until I came across doofix. The agent Mike connected to my laptop and helped me change many settings of my system. I've never thought it's so easy to get things fixed. Now my laptop runs quite fast. Thanks for your great service!" ---Frank H, US
